X-Men: First Class trailer

17 February, 2011 by IF

Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass), X-Men: First Class is the fifth instalment in the series and is a prequel to the first three films.

Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr 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 prevent nuclear 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.


Set in the 1960s, the superhero blockbuster – with a budget of reportedly $US120 million – will be released Down Under on June 2, 2011.
