X-Men: First Class Trailer Premier

I have a bit of interest in this new addition to the franchise, which I was never a huge fan of. When you have as many superheros as you do in X-Men, it’s incredibly hard to wedge them all into a meaningful story.

OK, so this screenshot looks a bit corny.

The first X-Men was a solid flick, though a bit corny with sooooo many heroes, villains, and a plot that had to be forced between character development. The sequels were just plain awful. However, with this prequel they have a chance to go back to square one, develop only the truly meaningful characters, introduce us to some new ones, and give the franchise a much-needed lift — along with all its fans. They can also strip down it’s over-the-top glitz, costumes, weaponry and vehicles because none of that exists yet. This could be a refreshing comic book movie. It’s directed by Matthew Vaughn, who directed “Layer Cake,” “Stardust,” and “Kick Ass” — all movies I very much enjoyed. The film is set for a June 3 release, and could be the best comic book film of the summer — going up against “Thor,” “Captain America” and “Green Lantern.”

  2. Magneto is truly the most interesting and compelling character in the entire franchise and unlike that horrible Wolverine prequel I am actually looking forward to this.

    BTW, Layer Cake is one of my favorite films.

  3. I agree with Shawn, I’m looking forward to this as well. I don’t think it looks corny.

  4. Looks solid. I’ll go see it.
