We've entered the final two weeks before 20th Century Fox unleashes Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class into theaters. It seems that one of the last TV spots to hit their marketing campaign caters to all the action genre fans out there willing to shell over their cash on June 3. Check out the new spot down below and sound off with your thoughts. The studio also revealed three new clips last week, which you can check out here.

The adventure tale stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Edi Gathegi, Bill Bilner, Jason Flemyng, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily and Zoe Kravitz. Helmer Vaughn led the direction, based on a screenplay by Josh Schwartz, Jamie Moss, Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz and Jane Goldman.

Plot Concept: "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.
