Four More X-Men First Class Spots

Four Last Minute TV Spots for X-Men: First Class.

With just two days left before 20th Century Fox pushes X-Men: First Class into theaters across the globe, the studio are using their last-minute marketing moments to push out another few TV spots for those not convinced. These latest four advertisements would bring the official TV campaign tally up to 20 spots overall. Watch them down below and sound off with your thoughts on whether you're shelling down the cash this weekend.

The adventure tale also 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.

X-Men: First Class strikes theaters June 3, 2011.

I am so there this week-end.  This looks really cool to me.  I did not read the x-men comics, so the continuity and character concerns dont bother me, and I'll just let the movie entertain me.   (Hopefully)

I already have my midnight tickets MrG.

And although the departure from the comics remains a sticking point I still believe this film will be awesome. I am trying a Zen like approach so hopefully that won't bother me much anymore.

My main peeve is that at first we (comic book fans) were able to accept Singer's version because come on most never thought we'd see the X-Men on film to begin with. Better to mhave something less than perfect than nothing at all. But now that they blew this golden chance to reboot the franchise and set the X Universe straight it really irks me, see it starting to piss me off again

Wise, just imangine Xavier is controlling your mind, and telling you continuity doesn'nt matter.  I know, I'm an idiot, and you want your X-Men, the same way I want my wise cracking Spider-Man.  LOL

 

I guess, we just take what we can get for now.  It looks good though, and I really like Michael Fassbender!

Just got out of the movie theatre since it is already out in France and my overall impression of the movie is very good. The whole 60s vibe combined with the way Matthew Vaughn saw the xmen resulted in the best Xmen flick to date. But there are some details that sorta bugged me, but then again, that's probably cause I'm a hardcore Xmen comics fan... Don't wanna spoil anything for y'all but if some of you have some doubts regarding the whole plot & continuity of the Xuniverse, try to put that aside and you'll have a blast sitting in the dark, I know I did!!!^^

Guess what! Im planning on catching this w/ 4 of my friends and we plan on dressing up like Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey. Once the movie is over, we're gonna look around all confused and say, "What gives?!" hahaha,i kid....

Thanks for the first hand account, fhavok.  

DarthRaider - WTF?  Where did that come from.  And, no neither one did.  The service was private for family only.

LOL Violator! I like it.

I feel bad for the new fans who will walk out of this movie saying "wow, that was cool, I want to go buy the comic". Then go to a comic store, buy a reprint of the first issues or even the Jeff Parker limited series called First Class and say WTF?

I will still probably go see it. I do have a free pass that I got with the purchase of a Fox blu-ray movie. Might as well use it eh?

I've just come from seeing it (I'm in the UK) and I have to agree with fhavok, it is one of the best - if not THE - best - X-movie so far. A few excellent Easter eggs, great dialogue, amazing sets and believable character development. Can't wait for the DVD. Funny that I went in with such low expectations...
