Another day, another new trailer. This brand new international trailer for the forthcoming X-Men: First Class, with stacks of new footage. This new trailer comes courtesy of 20th Century Fox and Bleeding Cool.
“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.”
Excited yet? The film will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Caleb Landry Jones, Oliver Platt, Lucas Till, Edi Gathegi, Jason Flemyng, Morgan Lily, Zoe Kravitz and Bill Bilner.
We aren’t going to go through and tell you which scenes are new, and there is a simply joy in discovering that for yourself. All we can say for sure is that this retro origin-story approach seems to be finally giving director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass), who had been previously tapped to helm X-Men 3: The Last Stand before Brett Ratner took over, a chance to share his vision with the world.
X-Men: First Class will be released in Australia in 2 June 2011 by 20th Century Fox.
