X-Men: First Class (2011)

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.

Looks good.

Excited na ako mapanood ito. I didn't know there was a prequel in the works until 2 months back when a friend told me to watch the prequel trailer in youtube.

the scud: I have high hopes for this film. I love Matthew Vaughn. Ever since I saw Layer Cake, I was like, "This guy is going places."

Michael Fassbender is another reason. God, this guy is phenomenal. Have you seen him in Hunger?

Is it really wrong to have missed all of the X-Men movies since I was born?

Visual Velocity said...

midnightorgasm: Oh, you didn't miss much with Bryan Singer's X-Men series. They say the new one (with director Matthew Vaughn) is good, though.
