Trailer: X-Men First Class

We've been waiting to see our first glimpse of the prequel X-Men film in motion and today that wait has ended. Released through Facebook we know have a our first trailer for "X-Men: First Class." Take a look below...

Very pleased is my initial reaction to this first trailer. I've been on the fence about how good this prequel will be, but this trailer definitely builds my excitement. First off, from what is shown, the film feels very authentic and real. There is no glitter to this latest installment of the X-Men. Secondly, the look is stunning. I love a period piece and seeing mutants back in the late 50's early 60's really tickles my inner fanboy. Thirdly, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender not only look great, but just seem like the right guys to be playing earlier versions of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr. As for the rest of the mutants, I can't really judge. We get some solid teases, but that is all they are. A 2 second shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Mistique or the back of some nude mutant with wings who appears to be showing Charles and Erik her goods don't really get me pumped. Fourth, the film looks to be heavily centered around Magento and his inner anger. Perhaps Fox finally decided to skip the Magneto prequel and just include the best bits here in 'First Class.' Finally, I'm sold. This movie looks to be awesome. Will it remains to be seen, but for now I'm ready to forget 'The Last Stand' and prepare myself for the beginning.

"X-Men: The Last Stand" hits theaters June 3rd and we can expect further advertising as develop as we move closer to the official release date.
