'X-Men: First Class' trailer targets Facebook fanbase tomorrow -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

The trailer for the superhero prequel X-Men: First Class goes up tomorrow, with Fox is releasing it in on Facebook as part of an effort to build a social networking community around the film, opening June 3. The fan page can be found at Facebook.com/XMenMovies, and it’s already 1.6 million wannabe-mutants strong. 

The trailer will offer fans a first look at the younger years of Professor X and his team of superpowered pupils. The movie, directed by Kick-Ass filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, stars James McAvoy (Atonement) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) in the Professor X and Magneto roles, respectively. Mad Men‘s January Jones co-stars as Emma Frost, the ultra-sexy Marvel Comics telepath known for her revealing white outfits and diamond-skin armor.

There are many questions surrounding the movie, and a big one can be asked about this mysterious new photo from Fox, released exclusively to EW. Obviously it’s Magneto — but where is he, and what’s he thinking?

My guess: “What kind of lair doesn’t have furniture? I better make an Ikea run.”

Serious theories about what’s happening here are also welcome …

  • Monty

    He’s in Cerebro.

    • hanoverfiste

      Nope, he is in the early danger room.

      • Greg

        Yep, definitely the danger room! Good call.

      • Mike

        I think Monty may be right–the size is too small for the danger room. Works for Cerebro, though.

      • AJ

        Cerebro is supposed to be dome shaped, no? Also lacks the terminal.

      • Eva

        He is in the Bathroom.

      • Erica

        How is this exclusive? I saw this early yesterday already.

    • Enan

      He can’t decide which movie to pick from his new Blu-Ray disc shelving unit.

    I had completely forgotten that I liked the facebook page. Thanks EW!

  • CathieT

    “Damn – I *knew* this hat wouldn’t match the decor!”

    “Ugh, as if moving metal with my mind didn’t already give me major migraines–now this”

  • Dean Koontz

    “I deserve a better movie and better director than this.”

    • Jeff

      Uh… He has a great director.

      Try again.

      • Green

        No…he doesn’t.
        Try again.

        This movie is in capable hands…i have more faith in this than Captain America…..

      • Chelsea

        I’ll have faith in anything starring James McAvoy.

  • Till

    “I’m a celebrity… Get me out of this crap!”

  • Abstract

    “this cape really brings the room together”

  • rory

    “Sometimes I go in here and think. Like, was there seriously no one better than Januaray Jones to play the awesome Emma Frost?”

    • KarlHall

      I think Jan Jones can do it!!! What i don’t like is the outfit… they brought back the 1960s fur lining one, but I was hoping for the 2000s skintight ice blue one!

  • Ryan

    How can i make this room look more like Inception?

  • Syn

    Seriously, where is the door?

    • Yesenia


    • MCS

      Best so far

    • KarlHall

      Like. (no pun intended)

  • Kal

    I think it’s an ante-room which contains the entrance to a private lair only he can open by manipulating the metal sections on the wall “puzzle style” to then enter and remain hidden. Either that, or there’s someone in front of him we can’t see, who he’s communicating with.

    • KarlHall

      Ooh good call. Like the Chamber of Secrets – only open-able by one with the power to do so.

  • Ellen Page

    He was checking out a forward of Brett Favre’s junk I sent him, right before he spins around and leers into the camera whilst the Dramatic Chipmunk music plays.

  • rjh90

    Alright….time to make that run to IKEA
