With just over a week to go before the big release, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS has already been dazzling everyone who's been lucky enough to see it and some are saying it's the best X-MEN movie of them all. This to me is an incredible statement based on how much I love X2 but I'm guessing that this new movie is getting rid of the bad taste left in audiences mouths from the famous X3. I was skeptical at first if this new 60's era superhero movie would work but leave it to director Matthew Vaughn to show us that anything is possible with a great script and cast. I will admit though that the marketing for the movie has been pretty shitty and only seems to have really picked up in the last week and a bit so lets hope it keeps building from here on out.
As a special treat for tonight, the folks at Marvel and UStream are bringing us the live streaming video from the official NYC premiere of the movie which starts tonight at 5:50pm EST/2:50 PST. The live stream can be viewed in the window below and the lead cast themselves will be there including James McAvoy (Professor Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto), Kevin Bacon (Sebastian Shaw), Rose Byrne (Dr. Moira MacTaggert), and January Jones (Emma Frost). Should be very cool so check back before it starts and we'll have photos from the event uploaded shortly after it ends.
