All new footage in three character trailers for X-Men: First Class

05.05.2011

It's standard practice for superhero films to have character posters, but with FIRST CLASS's recent photoshop disasters in that department, I think it's good they're sticking with character trailers instead.

Via MTV we have three new character spots for Banshee, Havoc and Beast. Each is about a minute long, giving the actors the screen time they haven't had in any of the trailers so far.

My expectations for this movie have been wildly up and down, and I have to say this is another dip, as some of this dialogue just seems...bad. Feel free to disagree, as I'm sure you will, but listen to the first line of Banshee's spot and tell me you didn't go "uhhh..." I'm also not sure about Havoc's hula hoop plasma, though I do like Hoult as Beast. But Mystique's going to go for him over bad boy hottie Havoc? Bitch please.

Check out the trailers below:

Extra Tidbit: I think James McAvoy is going a bit TOO zen for his soothing Professor X voice.

I think banshee is suppose to be a bit awkward? Who knows, still excited about this though.

It looks awesome. ☺

Plus I was thinking about how I liked James McAvoy's voice for Professor X before I saw that you didn't. I think it fits him perfectly.

I found nothing wrong with these clips and beside the posters I havnt seen anything that I didnt like. I'm finding that the negativity for this flick, green lantern, and captian america are coming from being overly cautious from the writters from this site and others. I think it totally unwarrented. This could be cause our expectation for superhero movies have grown but you have to keep in mind that any superhero movie there will be a underline of cheesiess in it. Did we all forget how bad

Agreed on your comment on older comic book movies. Just look at the stuff that was being put out in the 80's compared to even the worst comic book movies of today. I think everyone just has these expectations now following The Dark Knight or other major successful films.

Professor X

I actually am starting to like McAvoy's Xavier. At first I was somewhat reserved, but seeing him as a mentor character in these few trailers really makes me comfortable with the casting.

Now if they could just hire someone else to do the posters, they might actually have something going when it comes to advertising the film.

Matthew Vaughn is great!

Watching those 3 one minute clips really hits home how little character development were in the first three films. I like that First Class appears to about the X-Men in general and not just Prof. X and Magneto. I like Wolverine as much as the next guy but he started taking over the movies especially X3.

I think this looks great. It looks like we'll have a great ensemble film for once which is what X-men is all about! the other trilogy was way too focused on Wolverine. Its a bit far off from the comics but so far this looks like a film that will have great character development!

Everything I've seen for this film has been sub-par. All the trailers have been boring and the posters have been the worst Photoshopped stuff Hollywood has made yet. I am pretty positive that I am never going to watch this film.

I'm still not sure about this movie. Being a die hard X-Men fan. I dont knoe if I can buy X-Men First Class w/o the actual X-Men First Class. Original X-Men First Class Scott Summers, Jean Grey, Iceman, Angel & Beast. So you have 1 of 5 in this movie, but they cast Scott Summers younger brother in the movie. What's with that? I'm sorry I still feel like you can't an X-Men w/o at least Cyclops & Jean Grey

This flick is full of anachronisms, and i keep being told stupid stuff like "comic book characters dont age anyway" and stuff like that so i would make your argument on a comic site, not a movie site

I like it, I like when movies do something different. Let the comics/books/whatever source material remain as it is... no matter what it is I DON'T want to see the exact same thing just translated on the big screen... give me a take on it, not the exact copy... that's boring -- that movie already played in my head when I read the book, etc.

Aside from Beast, I can't seem to get that excited about the new (or, old?) x-men. Luckily Fassabender and McAvoy look great in thier roles and will really carry this movie. Also, what's the deal with Mystique? This clip seems to hint at her having a relationship with Beast, but in the other movies she was always into Magneto. Not to mention in the comics doesn't she and Azael (sp?), who's also in this movie, become the parents of nightcrawler? Girl must get around.

fuck YES

That's what I'm talking about! I was already somewhat interested in seeing this movie, but these trailers actually gave me chills. It's what I truly love seeing - stories about CHARACTERS.

Can't really blame Beast there. I'd be rendered speechless by Jennifer Lawrence too.

I'm actually pretty excited to see some new characters from the X-Men universe hit the screen. Just don't get crazy and bring in Longshot, Dazzler, and Zeitgeist...

That's Scott Summers (Cyclops) brother Alex Summers (Havok). He has the ability to take light and turn it into kinetic energy.
They also have a third brother named Vulcan, but he's a bad mofo, and lives in space with the Kree empire (before getting killed).

too cool.

really... with exception to the hoolahooping aforementioned - I really can't wait. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are A-list actors for christs sake... although 'Kick-Ass' mostly sucked - I'll take this gladly.

I've had faith in the movie and then I saw the Banshee one first, which made me reconsider. Then Havok was better and the Beast clip was pretty bad ass....

Banshee's first line was supposed to

be cheesy: he's using a lame line to try and pick up a girl and he fails miserably.
Nope, I still have faith in Matthew Vaughn; he's made some great films.

This is Fox saying "Twilight's hot right now, make xmen Twilight"

Looks really cheesy and like a new dish for the teenieboppers. I see Twilight's crappy fx have been kept intact during the name change, goody.

I don't get how Alex Summers is Scott Summers (Cyclops) younger brother yet in the future, Cyclops is the age of Alex in First Class.. Shouldn't Alex be his dad..or something..?

this is starting to look really cool, but part of me wishes they rebooted the series with first class. have the original 5. then the sequel coud be the new team as in giant size x-men #1 and continue from there...taking some liberties with the chronology.

No thanks

Sorry I choose not too see this. This is more like X-Factor w/ Xavier & Magneto added to the cast. Peeps can give me sh*t all they want, but if you're going too make an X-Men 1st class movie in order to reboot the series. Then they need to do their research a little better. I love the idea of exploring Xavier & Magneto's relationship, how they met and become friends. And how they bring about the X-Men, but doing it w/o the actually X-Men is my problem with this movie. You got Banshee

You got Banshee (X-Factor), Havok (X-Factor) Mystique (Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, never and X-Men) Emma Frost (Was in charge of the X-Men when Xavier was gone) Beast ( The only true member of the X-Men). They can call it X-Men: First Class, but its misleading. Fans of the X-Men who buy tickets to the movies, and the dvds when they come out, want the X-Men not a bunch of second rate mutants (Except Beast)thrown together too make a movie and call it X-Men.

Speaking of bad research. Banshee was originally in the X-Men as was Havok... Sure Havok was the leader of the 2nd version of X-Factor but that hardly makes this "more like X-Factor" so I don't see where you get that. I think the point of new characters is so we get something fresh instead something we've already seen before.

I would be sold if Havoc wasn't cyclops YOUNGER BROTHER ! Ho, and his plasma beam is supposed to be white, not red (I get the need to make a connection with Cyke, here) but I can get over this... BUT THE AGE ISSUE, I CAN'T ! Other than this (and a few other details), the movie looks good.

The Uncanny X-Men

This new footage looks incredible. I think the best thing this franchise did was bring back Singer and the talented Vaughn to direct.

I think all we need now is a character spot for Kevin Bacon.
