According to The Daily Blam 20th Century Fox has screened the first trailer for X-Men: First Class, and one of their writers has written up a description of what was shown. So far there is no confirmation as to whether this is the real deal, but they say the “trailer should be released to general audiences within the next four to six weeks” so we’ll soon find out.
Potential trailer spoilers below:
– The trailer opens with the 20th Century Fox logo which pans up as the two spotlight beams cross and form a white “X” on the left of the screen. A white circle goes around the “X” forming the X-Men logo, as Magneto’s helmet comes up on the right.
– Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan voice over the opening lines about destiny and which side will you stand for as scenes of each in their previous X-Men movie roles flash until the entire screen flashes from white to black.
– A very young Xavier and Erik meet for the first time, followed by a different angle of the scene from the opening of X-Men in the concentration camp.
– Camera pans outside of an old castle-style building that greatly resembles the X-mansion. McAvoy and Fassbender are seen walking through the halls. The words “One wanted peace” flash by Xavier.
– Scene transitions to Erik yelling dramatically as metal tables in the room begin to float around him. Xavier and Mags shake hands with a tall man in a lab coat introduced as Dr. McCoy.
– The words “The other was too far gone” flash as a very pissed off Erik storms through a hallway killing guards as he passes them.

If this is indeed the first trailer I can’t wait to see it. Having Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen provide voice-overs is a nice touch as it will help link the films, and who wouldn’t want a trailer introduced by the best voices in the mutant world?
X-Men: First Class 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.
