Twentieth Century Fox has begun obsessively marketing their upcoming comic adaptation, X-Men First Class. Yesterday they released a high quality cast photo, followed by several images from the film. Today, the first teaser poster for First Class has been released and it looks a little familiar. Take a look…
If you remember the teaser poster for the first X-Men movie back in 2000, this image might look familiar. They both center on the X symbol, the only difference is First Class represents the school and not the superhero team. The story takes place before the X-Men were formed. It centers on the children/teenagers who are trying to learn how to control their powers.
Official Plot Synopsis:
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 Lensherr 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 stop 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 will open in theaters nationwide on June 3, 2011.
