X-Men: First Class synopsis: “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 Lensherr 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 stop 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 film is directed by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust, Harry Brown, Kick-Ass) and stars James McAvoy as Professor X and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Other cast members include Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Edi Gathegi, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoë Kravitz, and Lucas Till.
X-Men: First Class opens June 3, 2011.
