Release Date June 2011 (USA) Director Matthew Vaughn Cast James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto), Kevin Bacon (Sebastian Shaw), January Jones (Emma Frost/White Queen)
English producer and director Matthew Vaughn directs X-Men: First Class, giving the 11-year-old franchise a new beginning. Since Layer Cake (a crime caper featuring bombshell Sienna Miller and a pre-James Bond Daniel Craig), Vaughn has been slowly making his mark in mainstream filmmaking. He got his first taste of Hollywood with last year's Kick-Ass, a crowd-pleasing, fist pumping popcorn flick he directed and co-wrote.
If Kick-Ass is of any indication, X-Men: First Class is going to be an in your face, no holds barred roller-coaster ride.
