X-Men First Class Trailer

The first trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s take on the X-Men series, X-Men First Class has just hit the internet.

It’s hard to tell exactly what tack the prequel’s going to take but it looks much more subdued that the others in the series although there’s the standard does of CGI bombast in the final seconds.

The film will trace the orgins of the X-Men back in the 1960s when the threat of the cold war was looming over everyone’s shoulders. It’ll also tell the story of how Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Professor X (James McAvoy) stopped being best buds and started trying to kill each other.
