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?

  • Moon
    If ever a trailer deserved "must-watch" it is this trailer.
  • I'm actually surprised how good this looks...
  • Th
  • Looked good, but I don't know how excited I am considering there is no Wolverine. :/
    • Anonymous
      Eh. Nightcrawler will be in it, which makes more than up for it. He was always my favorite character and I was sad he wasn't a bigger part of the X-Men movies. They were all more of a Wolverine show. Also, Beast looks awesome!
      • Fallendeathspider
        i hate to break the news to yah..but its nightcrawlers dad XD
        • Anonymous
          Lol, oh well. Don't have a problem with that either. =P
        • splinter
          I thought nightcrawlers dad was sabertooth they revealed that in the origins story's ??? it obviously changed but who is it ? i thought his mom was mystique and his dad was sabertooth
      • its not nightcrawer, its Azazel
      • Marksd99
        Actually i don't think Nightcrawler's slated to be in this one, the guy in the trailer is Azazel his dad
    • Its good that there is no wolverine as then the entire story revolves around him.
  • Dave
  • SOLD
  • wow was not expecting this at all
  • Wheelz37
    The Cuban missile crisis? I was expecting this to be some teenage mutant coming of age cheese fest. Instead we get something that looks epic and awesome. I just went from why the hell are they making this to cant wait to see it
  • Luigi
    did not expect this
  • Moviekidmike
    It looks ok. I like the darkness of it, but it looks a little too sleek for it's own good. But it does have potential and didn't give too much away
  • I like the way this whole story is turning out to be.
  • lol
    Piss was never an option. LOL
  • Finally! I trust Ashely Miller....but not Bryan Singer.
  • Looks very good. I have full faith in Matthew Vaughn and McAvoy and Fassbender appear to be really solid choices. The mystique effect looked nice too.
  • kdove89
    I loved all the xmen movies, I'm so happy this looks awesome!
  • count me in.
  • Bart Scott
    got chills, CANT WAIT
  • I wish there was a way to count how many people went from "Absolutely Not" to saving the date in their phones.
    • Cracky
      Tell me about it.
  • When did they start filming this, Man they worked FAST!

    ....this once very critical viewer of X-Men films has a slight flame of interest growing inside....

    Is that Kevin Bacon playing Kevin Bacon...oh yeah must watch.
  • I'm one of those people that couldn't care less TO NOW AWAITING.
  • TomCruise
    haters gonna hate!
  • Thanos
    Meh..... I'll just have to wait and see.
  • Looks OK.
  • Rooneyman
    Holy crap, I didn't know really what to expect from this movie but wow, its looks pretty good. Liking the suits to.
  • Dan3659
    The first 30 seconds looked fan made... ha ha how wrong i was!
  • Dan3659
    Also loving the Red army invading the School for the gifted, wonder if anyone shouts "WOLVERINES" ha ha
    • John Doe
  • Ron
    That was better than I thought it would be!
  • NeoSlyfer26
    Interesting this feels like what the X-men should have been. Super Heroes, loving the blue and yellow costumes
  • Furious911
    I'm finally excited for the X again! After the first x-men movie all the others even wolverine and most other marvel offerings besides ironman have been pretty weak, this actually looks... Awesome!
    • I love when people say stuff like that as if it's fact. X-2 is considered by almost anyone to be quite superior to the first X-men. Also The Incredible Hulk was really good, and was appreciated, by the majority who saw it, as a good movie. The first two spider-man's are considered amazing movies, even though personally I don't rate them very high. There's also The Punisher. The Thomas Jane version was entertaining enough. I would never call it a bad movie. I guess I'd call the other Punisher movie bad, but I enjoyed it. Fantastic Four 1 and 2 are considered pretty weak by a lot of people, though personally I felt they got the characters spot on. They just needed better plots to back the characters up.
  • Nick and the big bad B
    Wow, I went in not even wanting to like it, but now I can't wait.
  • tra la la la la di da
    At least I'm not selling out. Looks pretty basic not too mention I can't get over the horrible placement in time of the characters. Gues ya just gotta view it as a reboot with a different story. Think they could have redesigned the helmet though. lol
  • Cruzer
    Yeah I'd have to agree with you on the mood, and the style is awesome! I too didn't expect much from this, but I've changed my mind.
  • Max s.
    I just ate my words, I went from not interested to holy shit I need to see this, looks epic
  • Manuel
    Very nice trailer. Hope the rest of the movie has something interesting to show too.
  • Guy
    Dude Cold War + X-Men / Mathew Vaughn this looks better than all of the other X-men films
  • Guy
    You really can't go wrong with Mcavoy and Fassbender... they alone make this completely badass.
  • ZigityZach
    I honestly didn't know what to expect. I never followed up on any production details or anything. I always knew I'd see it but I wasn't overly excited. But now I'm overexcited for this. That trailer looked fucking awesome.
  • Technoguy25
    I'm probably gonna see this film. But it bugs the hell out of me that they are using a SR-71 Blackbird in this film, when historically the plane didn't exist during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I know this film is a work of fiction, but common guys... get your facts straight!
    • carestoomuch
      Also, the diameter of an sr-71 fuselage is 5.3 ft, but they have plenty of room to stand up with head room. Not to mention, the sr-71's magical new hovering abilities. Plus, at least five other mistakes off the top of my head, but what can you do.
      • Frank
        Yeah! Can you believe that!?!!? I mean come on...I can buy a man pulling a submarine from the ocean with magnetism...but a plane that is not actually an SR-71, just happens to look like one, designed by a man who can read minds...come on...that's just too much. ...sigh
  • BinaryChaos
    Lets not forget how bad ass and epic X-men 3 trailer looked and it was total trash in theatres... With that I'm going to wait until I hear the reviews on this movie when it comes out before I run to the theatres and watch it.
  • ok this may be the first X-Men movie i will actually like....and i almost never gave this movie a chance.......
  • Nice. I wasn't really all that excited about this, but after the trailer I'm sorta pumped.
  • alfredo
    Umm, so I must admit I was one of the naysayers, ever since this movie was announced up to a couple minutes ago. Now I'm eating my words. Anyone got some garlic salt and parsley?
  • Quazzimotto
    Love the cast, Vaughn won me over with Kick-Ass. This trailer was great, very much looking forward to seeing this.
  • Boon
    Makes me wish there was no X3
  • leo
    damn this actually looks pretty good!....
  • Jackson
    Better than expected, but still seems played out already. We'll see. Rose Byrne is pretty much my interest point.
  • cinemabandit
  • Dkellenbox
    Holy.....crap.......this is gonna be awesome
  • Aniruddha Chowkidar
    Its gonna be an epic.
  • Anonymous
    YAY! I'm first! To not be impressed. The overused techno song, quick edits, and the lack of hinting at real friendship between Charles and Eric made me cautious. Thought we were getting a fresh start with the origins of the X-Men; instead we got an a-typical "crisis" plot, "safe" characters/powers from the first 3 films, and the same old tired political stare down/banter between Charles and Eric. Plus having to re-use footage from the first movie to "introduce" the main characters is a giant red flag.
  • Brandon
    Trying too hard to be edgy with the choppy & boring MTV editing. The trailer gave away the whole movie. Looks like any other x men film to me. But hey, geek away fanboys.
    • All Fanboys Are Geeks It Seems
      And you can continue to be a dick. All is fair I guess.

    Looks WAY better then i had expected it to be.
  • Anonymous
    Hmmmm... the trailer is not very good, but not that bad either. I'll watch it because, well it's @#$%ing X-MEN!... and I hope it will make up for x3 and wolverine.
  • Cable
    Im impressed! The recent photos were filling me with dread but after this im looking forward to it a hellnof a lot more. Just as long as the story and action are better than the previous films
    • John Doe
      My sentiments EXACTLY!
  • !5AAK
    Hrmmmmm....meh, I'll have to check it out.
  • David Banner
    I went from 'meh' to 'can't wait'-but trailers always lie nowadays, let's just hope this film doesn't make me....angry
    • John Doe
      I hear you brother.
  • Viralamazon
    Hey. Looks Promising. Anyone know what the song is?
  • Leinergroove
    Hey, I'm very impressed with the scenes involving Magneto, and my bet on this one has always been James X. McCavoy. I didn't like the use of clips of the previous movies. This should stand by itself and being told as a separate story. Among the great filmmakers nowadays, Mathew Vaughn is one of my favorites, so, this should turn out OK.
  • Storm_tribe1984
    omg i sooo cant wait for more it looked reallyyyyy goodddddddd :) :) :)

    Everything looked fine till I saw evidence that they changed my personal favorite xmen character. Instead of angel having wing and being a dude. They changed his character and made him a chick with insect wings. How many times can Marvel approve such shotty script writing and gender character changes why not make proffesor x black and magneto mexican. Reason why Iron Man did so well was because it stuck close to the story and appealed to fans because thats what we wont. Im tired of hollywood destroying the comic books I read as a kid and grew up watching.
    • Anonymous
      I hate to tell you this but its not the same comic book you read as a kid. No masks, no stretch pants and no emo aliens. Stop talking about your failed childhood.
    • Staatz
      I don't think that was angel, I think that was one of the newer characters from the comics, Pixie or something, I do wish they would stick closer to the time line though. I'm not too impressed. I'll wait for the reviews myself.
  • Cody W.
    Whoooa, yeah with the majority here....I did not see that coming.
  • Anonymous
    It gave me chills.
  • David 123
    WHAAAAT! I did not expect this. Very nice.
  • mochonko
    bout time we had a decent X men flick! cant wait!
  • BaSs1L
    The trailer is pretty cool, but I am worried because there are too many guys in the screenwrite
    • John Doe
      That too also concerns me.
  • Del
    looks fucking awesome cant wait to see it, they finally got Magneto's helmet right....
  • could have been better but i guess itll do and i like the music 😀
  • Only one thing to say....SR-71 BLACKBIRD Original X-Jet!!!!!! OMG!!!!!
  • Gh
    What did you guys expect? It has to look good at least as good as the Xmen movies. How January Jones' character and mystic change is so lame, I am not happy about that but the rest is ok.
  • Man that music is awesome... does anyone know where one might get their hands on it?
  • liyan
    this looks awesome. plus mcavoy and fassbender are two of my favorite actors, so yeah, i'm sold.
  • Rickvanr
    I'm a sucker for when they blend fiction and non fiction, especially when it includes the cold war. This looks like it could be very good.
  • Glen
    I have to say, Well, it just looks terrible.
  • i have no name
    Now that the trailer is out... Everybody, just swallowed their own shit back in their mouth. Since they were talking so much of it.
    • John Doe
      Yeah, I'll admit, I was one of the shit talkers. The trailer looks good. But even though the trailer 'looks good' does not mean it will be good. I remember everybody saying how good the X3 trailer looked too.
  • Yourmail
    x2 was one of the best comic book movies ever made and by far the best in the series, it was ruined by x3 but its nice to see theyve gotten back in the right direction
  • LastB
  • NelsonSmith
    Crap this looks good. I thought the X-men movies were alright, but nothing great, but this looks really impressive. Sometimes you just need a fresh start.
  • Gh
    I love the accent of McAvoy in this! and the music
  • mike
    Looks like Matthew Vaughn has made another great movie.
  • Tekail
    did i see night crawler!!! yes!!!
  • the more and more I watch this the more it gives me a fan-made vibe...
  • infra
    What the hell are you people talking about??? I WAS excited to see this movie until I saw the first photos and trailer. I really like James M. and he's a good actor, but this looks like popcorn crap... If you're going to do an "origin" story... and people are getting tired of origins (even though I like a couple of the recent ones), don't make that cheesy shit...I'm not sold at all...wake up people! Looks like a wannabe summer flic and not true to the story or the characters. The story HAD MAJOR potential, but it's gonna do what X-Men 3 and Wolverine did...i'm willing to bite my tongue later...and i would very much like to, but this looks bad
  • Anonymous
    Anything looks better than Marvels' Captain America. I haven't been impressed by that movie so far. Too many lame jokes and cheesy factor in that by what they have shown already. This one at least looks interesting and the subject matter seems to have been taken more seriously. What I enjoyed about The X-Men was the fact that it was more serious. I will probably pay the money to see this one.
