    MARVEL X-Men: First Class (June 3, 2011) (MC: 65, RT: 86%)

    http://geektyrant.com/storage/page-i...st%20shot.jpeg

    Director: Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass)
    IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1270798/
    Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Men:_...ass_%28film%29

    Story:
    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 Lensherr 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 stop 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.
    Cast:

    Jennifer Lawrence ... Raven Darkholme / Mystique
    James McAvoy ... Professor Charles Xavier
    January Jones ... Emma Frost
    Kevin Bacon ... Sebastian Shaw
    Michael Fassbender ... Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto
    Rose Byrne ... Dr. Moira MacTaggert
    Nicholas Hoult ... Hank McCoy / Beast
    Jason Flemyng ... Azazel
    Oliver Platt ... Man in Black
    Lucas Till ... Alex Summers / Havok
    Zoë Kravitz ... Angel Salvadore
    Morgan Lily ... Young Raven Darkholme / Young Mystique
    Edi Gathegi ... Armando Muñoz / Darwin
    Ray Wise ... Secretary of State of the United States
    Bill Milner ... Young Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto
    Caleb Landry Jones ... Sean Cassidy / Banshee
    Álex González ... Janos Quested / Riptide
    Andy Callaghan ... member of the Hellfire Club
    Tony Rich ... Thomas

    Notes:

    - Fox envisions X-Men: First Class as the first film of a new trilogy. Donner compared the franchise plans to the darker, more mature content of the Harry Potter film series.

    - The original idea was to green-light the film depending on the success of X-Men Origins: Magneto, but Singer added elements of the Magneto spin-off, merged into a new script by Jamie Moss. In addition to Moss, Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz were hired to rewrite the script. Miller compared it tonally to Singer's work on the first two X-Men films. Singer dropped out of the director's position in March 2010 due to his commitment to a Jack the Giant Killer adaptation. He formalized his duties from director to producer. Matthew Vaughn signed on as Singer's replacement in May 2010. With his hiring, Fox announced a June 4, 2011 release date, and Jane Goldman was hired for another rewrite. Vaughn wanted to model X-Men: First Class after the 2009 Star Trek film, taking the franchise in a new direction with a fresh, young cast. An action scene that was to have been set in a dream sequence with revolving rooms was scrapped after the release of Inception. The 1960s setting of X-Men: First Class will be technologically inspired by the James Bond films of that era, also adding to the international feel of the characters. The X-Men costumes will look much more as they did in the original comics compared with the first three films

    I cant believe it would be possible w/ Mad Men, but January Jones has made me lust after her that much more w/ this.

    I really wanna see how Kevin Bacon does at Sebastian Shaw. I think he might be the saving grace of this movie. Also, I didn't realize Angel Salvadore is in this. Weird mutant to use, all things considered. Polaris would have been a better choice, she and Havok could have replaced Scott and Jean.

    Would've been great to see Polaris and her green hair on screen but with Magneto involved, probably can't have two mutants with the same power on screen.

    Actors they can lock in for a cheap rate and characters not raped by X-Men trilogy, Wolverine 1/2 or the Deadpool movie.

    That beast looks fucking awful. They shoulda stuck with kelsey grammar for him, but i guess this is a low budget film, you'd have to pay him a fortune.

    I don't know, it could have been interesting. When Magneto decides to go his extremist route and she has to pick between her father and Havok. I don't get the point of having Azazel at all. He is a dumb character and his only service is he is Nightcrawler's dad. If they did a Purifiers movie, that would be awesome. I doubt Fox has the balls to do something that controversial though.

    Hes supposed to be like 40 years younger, this takes place in the 1960s. So no Kelsey Grammar doesnt fit the same way Captain Jean Luc Picard and Gandalf the Grey don't

    They're emulating harry potter for the "maturity." That doesn't strike me as promising.

    Shame John Powell isn't doing the soundtrack for this, as his score for The Last Stand was amazing even if the film itself was a pile of shit.

    It's like comparing dog shit to horse shit. Both shit, just one's a bigger pile of shit. I'll let you decide which is which.
