Today 20th Century Fox released the second official trailer for X-Men: First Class. I was sold by the teaser trailer, but this trailer just confirms i’ll be there opening night. There’s lots of new footage, more emphasis on the formation of the X-Men, Xavier and Magneto’s relationship, and the Cuban Missile Crisis backdrop.
Watch the trailer below:
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).
