The X-Men: First Class trailer will run in front of Green Hornet, described in detail here

Jan. 12, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Wow, well that's certainly unexpected. We haven't seen one official image from the X-MEN: FIRST CLASS set yet, but allegedly a teaser trailer is going to drop in a few days before GREEN HORNET.

UPDATE - Collider reached out to Fox who claim that an X-MEN trailer will NOT be in theaters this weekend and they don't have a date set yet for when it will premiere.

And if you're expecting a mere "X" symbol with people talking over it for thirty seconds, there is actually a lot of footage featured, and The Daily Blam claims they've gotten a look at it, and have posted a lengthy description of it which you can find below. It features a ton of the principal cast, focuses mainly on Xavier, Magneto and the Hellfire Club. If you'd rather wait and see for yourself, I suggest you skip what's about to follow.

- The trailer opens with the 20th Century Fox logo which pans up as the two spotlight beams cross and form a white "X" on the left of the screen. A white circle goes around the "X" forming the X-Men logo, as Magneto's helmet comes up on the right.

- Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan voice over the opening lines about destiny and which side will you stand for as scenes of each in their previous X-Men movie roles flash until the entire screen flashes from white to black.

- A very young Xavier and Erik meet for the first time, followed by a different angle of the scene from the opening of X-Men in the concentration camp.

- Camera pans outside of an old castle-style building that greatly resembles the X-mansion. McAvoy and Fassbender are seen walking through the halls. The words "One wanted peace" flash by Xavier.

- Scene transitions to Erik yelling dramatically as metal tables in the room begin to float around him. Xavier and Mags shake hands with a tall man in a lab coat introduced as Dr. McCoy.

- The words "The other was too far gone" flash as a very pissed off Erik storms through a hallway killing guards as he passes them.

- Cut scene to what appears to be a red Nightcrawler with swords taking out a room full of people; the close up reveals Azazel's face.

- The Hellfire Club stand next to Xavier on a bed as Emma goes into diamond form. Olver Platt and Kevin Bacon were next to Emma in black aristocratic clothes, with Emma wearing the exact same outfit from the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon.

- Mystigue on a bed with her skin turning black; Beast is shown transforming, with his feet growing and toes webbing and fur growing.

- Havok shoots a red beam of energy -- looks almost exactly like cyclops's eye beam, but larger -- from his chest (SIDE NOTE: Havok's powers in comics have always had a blue energy, this change may be to relate his character to Cyclops).

- It then shows Beast all blue and furry (looking almost exactly like Kelsey Grammer in make-up) in the pilot seat of a crashing jet, followed by several rockets flying towards an island.

- Xavier's face goes all CGI and his head begins to go bald as he mentally pulls a large ship that was sinking out of the water, as well as some smaller boats around it (seems to allude to Xavier have telekinesis).

- Back to Xavier (with hair) telling Erik he only wanted peace for him, and he replies there was never a chance for anyone to have that.

- Final scene: Erik picks up a black helmet, then he is shown from behind wearing a black and red suit (no cape or coat though) and the helmet. Screen cuts to black and the X-Men: First Class logo shows up (the one described above), then the release date

I mean, sounds awfully elaborate to be proven false two days from now. I guess we'll have to see, and hopefully this will redeem the franchise after the last two movies were shit.

Extra Tidbit: This is great and all, but what I'm really pumped about is Aronofsky's WOLVERINE.

Sounds like they're blowing their only chance at a reboot by tying it to the first three films. They've already massacred the universe to the point that there are story lines they'll never be able to explore.

To hell with Needlenose Jackman and his cartoon eyebrows. I will never understand why he's so revered in the role of Wolverine.

From what I've heard the trailer will actually premiere during the Super Bowl.

Hmm...

So the X-Men are Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, Azazel, Havok and the Beast and Emma, Shaw and Pierce are in the Hellfire Club then. Presumably these are the main characters although we've heard that there will also be X-Men named Angel (female) and Darwin. Havok can't be Cyclops' brother here so the color of his powers is moot. Sounds a lot like the first X-Men movie in terms of the number of characters. They'll introduce more characters if there are sequels (and mess up continuity even more).

Fatal Attractions

Would've preferred that story arc over another prequel. I remember thinking as a kid 'man, why don't they make more comics movies?!?!?! The storyboards are there, the story, the plot, the dialogue...' Now I just want it to stop...

They should rebooted X-Men 3 The Last Stand instead of filming X-men First Class.

Damn, that would've been my only real reason to go see Green Hornet this weekend. Fox almost saved the Green Hornet's box office...

(Please tell me fanboys aren't already bitching about the color of Havok's energy are they???)

there is no trailer

it's not on the digital drive for Green Hornet, so it's definitely not before the film.

Havok energy was white

His energy (Havok's) was white and puilt up in his chest then he aimed it and directed it though his arms.

I'm very, very intrigued by this. The first 2 were great and the third, while relatively shitty still had it's moments.

On a side note: the pop-ups on this site have gotten out of fucking control the last 3 days. I've never once been bothered by them but it's gotten a lil intense.

I agree about the popups. I think the owners have a secret shame about them, as I've never seen any of them comment on the horrible popups.

Extra Tidbit

First off, I'm excited for another X-men movie. I'm going to try to keep optimistic about it. I've always loved the X-Men and hate that their last movie was so bad. Second, your extra tidbit suggested the last 2 X-Men movies were "shit".. I really hope you are talking about the Wolverine movie and X3, and not X3 and X2. X-Men 2 is my favorite out of the 3. :/ Also, Wolverine wasn't that bad.. better than X3

Origins ruined Wolvie before the movie made it worse. Some things are better off as mysteries, his backstory being one of them. As a film it was -ok-, I'll give it that...aside from Deadpool, that was a travesty.

I'm getting more and more convinced that I won't like this. Just seems like they're packing too much into one movie like in X3. Still have some hope though . . .
