Eager X-Men fans and superhero film buffs were mildly disappointed that X-Men: First Class didn’t make an epic 30-second introduction as one of the Super Bowl movie trailers on Sunday. Of the four big budget comic book movies releasing throughout the busy summer season, X-Men: First Class is the one we’ve seen the least of and the one we’re most curious about.
Our first official look at stills and the characters of X-Men: First Class only debuted a few weeks ago and the initial introduction was less than impressive. Followed up by reports that the film is being intensely rushed to meet its release date, and coupled with First Class representing the next franchise installment after two weak movies, and you can see why there’s some angst about what’s in store for the X-Men franchise.
Fortunately, most of these concerns may go away tomorrow as Twentieth Century Fox is preparing to release the very first official X-Men: First Class trailer tomorrow. You heard us right! We haven’t seen a single leaked bit of footage and tomorrow we’re jumping right in a trailer that’s tailored for the fans.
You’ll be able to find the release on Facebook at this location:
Also, if the number of fans, “likes,” and sharing of this trailer expands, new special content will become available through “a specially designed X-App.” This app lets Facebook users use some cool features that can be used to alter their profile pictures.
The Facebook page also reveals the confirmed X-Men: First Class movie logo, featured previously in the earlier released X-Men: First Class poster.
The X-Men: First Class synopsis:
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
The X-Men franchise prequel, set in the 1960s, stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, Kevin Bacon, Lucas Till, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng, Zoë Kravitz, Edi Gathegi, Ray Wise and Caleb Landry Jones.
We’ll have the X-Men: First Class trailer, along with our detailed thoughts, here on Screen Rant as soon as soon as it becomes available to put up so check back frequently for more X-Men movie news! We’re excited about the unveiling of director Matthew Vaughn and producer Bryan Singer’s work on the film thus far and hope the trailer changes some of the negative early buzz and justifies our placement of the film in our top 20 most anticipated movies of 2011.
