After the first trailer for Matthew Vaughn's anticipated comic book prequel X-Men: First Class, I've been saying that the flick looks like "Mad Men" with mutants. And while we saw a couple terrible posters awhile back promoting the film's release, some new promo images from Total Film not only help wipe those from our memory, but they also stick along the lines of my impression of the film from the trailer. The film magazine has taken some images of the film's characters like Magneto and Emma Frost and used them on retro magazine covers meant to look like the old variants of Life and Esquire. Check them out below!
Here are the images from Total Film (via Bleeding Cool):
Before Charles Xavier (McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) took the names Professor X & Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time, even working together as friends.
X-Men: First Class is directed by British director Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake, Stardust and Kick-Ass. Bryan Singer, director of X-Men 1 and 2, is producing and wrote the story. The screenplay was written by quite a few writers, including Josh Schwartz ("Gossip Girl" & "Chuck"), Jamie Moss (Street Kings), Ashley Miller ("Fringe", Thor), Zack Stentz, and finally Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass). Marv Films & 20th Century Fox are bringing X-Men: First Class to theaters everywhere starting June 3rd this summer. Who's excited?
