UK poster for X-Men: First Class

Empire has posted a new UK poster released by 20th Century Fox for X-Men: First Class. While First Class is easily one of my most anticipated movies this summer, they really need to hire a new poster guy. While the concept is similar to what we’ve seen before with the trilogy, it suffers from another case of questionable photoshopping.

Update: Another international poster has also appeared online.

Matthew Vaughn’s movie, set for release on June 3rd, will focus on Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as they work together with other mutants to stop the Hellfire Club, an international social club for wealthy elites who seek to influence world events to their own agenda. Kevin Bacon will play the leader, Sebastian Shaw, along with January Jones as Emma Frost.

The movie also features Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones) and Darwin (Edi Gathegi).

Below are the similar-style posters for X2 and X3, just for comparison:

  • TevinM

    This is an almost exact match for one of the comic covers.

  • Kamy

    Wow! That is an awful poster! Im really getting a sinking feeling about this movie!! But then again if Thor is getting positive reviews maybe there is still hope in the world.
