'X-Men: First Class': Watch a clip from the mysterious prequel

We still don’t know very much about X-Men: First Class, the Cold War-era preboot in which a much younger gang of mutants puts on retro-fab bright blue-and-yellow costumes to fight Fidel Castro, Black Ops-style. So treasure the short, intriguing clip from the film that just hit the Internet, in which a young Professor X (James McAvoy) makes a presentation in CIA headquarters about the oncoming rise of superpowered individuals. Suffice it to say, the era-appropriate G-Men act like era-appropriate toolboxes. (Also, am I crazy, or is Oliver Platt the spitting image of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara? Maybe I have been playing too much Black Ops.) Check out the scene below:

    I hope the climactic fight between Michael Fassbender (Erik Lehnsherr/ Magneto) and Kevin Bacon (Sebastian Shaw) will knock everyone on their ass and be so amazing and action-packed, audiences all over the world will be left breathless.

      The new Zune browser is usrprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Funny; you had me at McAvoy.

    • Courtney

      I would have already seen this movie as I’m a big fan of the XMen movie franchise.

      However, I also worship James McAvoy and could listen to him read the phone book for two hours.

    I need to assemble the x – men to take out Trump, S Palin, the tea bagged joker party, and the rest of the republican party .

    • sam

      because that’s relevant.

  • AM

    Very cool…looking forward to the film.

  • CRobber

    And I will assemble them to “take out” all pie-in-the-sky liberal Democrats before more people fall under their evil sway.
    How’s that for turning popcorn FUN into a tirade, w g alvira?

  • Kim

    For some reason I think Mystique in this looks really weird compared to the other movies… Especially the little girl Mystique. She looks creepy.

      First Class NO WAY! When I read the comics the first class was: Jean Grey, Cyclops, Angel, Beast, and Ice Man. Those are the cahtacrers I loved and that’s who this movie should have been about. The competition between Angel and Cyclops for team leader and Jeans affection kept me buying and reading plus this all took place in the 60’s. When will the real FIRST CLASS be made into a movie?
