Cool Videos: Some fan-made First Class credits

Apr. 5, 2011by:

We all know that the X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is set during the Cuban Missile Crisis for the most part, but outside of the wardrobe, the film itself looks very 21st century.

That's about to change with this title sequence created by Joe D, which introduces the film in a style that you'll recognize from decades past. It's animation spliced with images from the film itself, all underscored by a haunting rendition of the original X-Men theme.

I dig it, and could easily see something similar opening the movie if they wanted to get all artsy with it. My only suggestion would be to leave out the real-life images of the cast and crew being listed onscreen, and just go for pure animation.

Check it out below:

Extra Tidbit: I think the only director that would ever put his own picture in the opening credits would be Michael Bay.

I like it. Not crazy about when everything's streaming along so fast I have a seizure, but loved how they did McAvoy and Fassbender and then later the rough characterizations of the mutants.
