X-Men: First Class Trailer
The X-Men saga continues on with this newly released trailer for X-Men: First Class, the highly anticipated film detailing the very beginning of the epic mutant war. The story focuses on the history of Professor X, played by actor James McAvoy, as a young Charles Xavier as he first discovers his mutant powers alongside friend Erik Lehnsherr (better known as Magneto). With a nuclear war looming between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, the mutants are recruited to help diffuse the crisis and must band together as a team, leading them to choose between a destiny of good or one of evil. The trailer introduces characters already familiar to fans of the comic book like Beast and Nightcrawler as well as ones from previous X-Men movies including Cyclops, Jean and Mystique. X-Men: First Class is set to be released in theaters June 3, 2011.
