Watch: 1960's Style Opening Title Sequence for 'X-Men: First Class'
Yesterday we featured some cool retro magazine covers featuring Magneto and Charles Xavier, but today we have something that takes the flashback setting of X-Men: First Class to a whole new level. AICN came across a spectacularly crafted 60's-style opening title sequence for the film with some pretty kick-ass Saul Bass inspired animation. Honestly, this is one of the coolest fan-made things I've seen in a while. The video (from Joe D on Vimeo) also uses a very classy, even haunting rendition of the X-Men cartoon series theme. Let's hope the real credit sequence can rival this one when it hits theaters on June 3rd this summer. Enjoy!
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 will be bringing X-Men: First Class to theaters everywhere June 3rd this summer. Watch the first trailer.
