The first trailer for X-Men: First Class is now available for your viewing pleasure.
Here’s the synopsis from the press release:
“X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”
Young mutants in love.
Oo, I love movies about young men discovering their powers for the first time and working closely together. Since Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2) wrote the story for X-Men: First Class, I’m hoping we get at least a little homo subtext in this one.
The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt and Kevin Bacon. Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) directs.
