These three official stills from X-Men: First Class should not disappoint

01.19.2011

I am very proud to show you these new official stills from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.

Yesterday this early bullcrap "official cast photo" made my heart sink. Now Fox via Hero Complex has released some actual official stills from the film. Might I say, they are great. When I saw the very last one of Charles (James McAvoy) and Eric (Michael Fassbender) playing chess, I immediately fell in love. I just cannot praise these photos enough. I know it's early to say these things, but so far so good.

On top of that, they have a report from the set. Here's some excerpts:

Vaughn on feeling the pressure: “I’m at that stage where I feel like a boxer against the ropes. I’m just throwing punches and taking them as they come and making sure I don’t hit the canvas.”

What does he think of those other comic translations coming out? “With ‘Green Lantern,’ I don’t know about that one, I couldn’t get my head around the trailer, to be honest … look, I will say the following: X-Men as a brand is bigger than Captain America, Thor and the Green Lantern, all put together.”

To check out the rest of the report, head here. Now take a look at the stills!

Extra Tidbit: Is anyone else even slightly excited after seeing these photos?

I might be the only one...

but I am more interested in this than that remake of Spider-Man. Let's not sugarcoat it, that's totally a remake. At least this movie is trying something different by putting it in the '60s.

A "remake" would imply that Spider-man has only existed in the realm of film.

Would you call Batman Begins a remake?

I must be missing something.

Because all I see are a bunch of douches standing around, a boring game of chess, and bacon looking at boobs.

Vaughn did a terrific job with Kick-Ass and is a better director than Ratner so yeah it'll be the best X-Men film since X-Men 2

Was Mystique ever apart of the X-Men?

In the cast pic she was wearing an X-Men outfit. Was she part of the original team?

Mystique briefly joined the X-men in recent comics, but no, she was never apart of the original team. This film, like the previous, will continue to piss all over the source material.

Yeah, to further answer your question, Beast is the only student in the movie that was ever in the original team. Ridiculous . . .

Movie photos do nothing for me, never will

Until I see a trailer, photos mean nothing to me. Love the cast but these are about as boring ass photos as possible.

As much as I'd love to jump on the X-Men Love Bandwagon, I'm gonna' be brutally honest and say almost every pic I've seen to date does nothing to interest me in seeing this movie whatsoever. The "group photo" was a disaster, but these "counter-photos" aren't that great either. I think Vaugn has it wrong. X-Men is only a brand much bigger than Thor and Captain America because of key elements like Wolverine, Cyclops, and Jean Grey. Also, as if THREE movies with Magneto wasn't enough, he seems to

Also, as if THREE movies with Magneto wasn't enough, he seems to be happily playing chess here again, and looks like a tool with his crooked "Adam-West-ish" helmet. Thumbs down me all you want, but that's just how I feel. Hopefully a trailer will change my mind.

Haha. No I really meant his helmet. It isn't here yet, I saw it over at /Film. There's one of him wearing his helmet all crooked and another of McAvoy doing the signature Prof.X mindreading pose.

The only picture that really made me excited is the one with Kevin Bacon. Kevin effin' Bacon!! Come to think of it, I thought of him as Kevin Bacon's fan from Google Revue ad. Nice, Mr. Bacon. Still, with Bacon in it, I hope X-Men First Class will be good.

I think the photos look great, sure, but I really need to see a trailer for this. I'm not so much against this film as I am just with an attitude of let sleeping dogs lie. But, it will hopefully at least be entertaining. I do like the retro feel of the whole thing though.

Those actually look pretty awesome, I was worried cause AICN had a still up yesterday that looked terrible; teenage Beast was blue and had the fur which is all kinds of wrong. Still trepidatious because the X-Men are my fave superhero team and eatching the last two movies has been heart breaking.

It's a great concept with a remarkable cast and superb creators... Singer and Vaughn... so personally, I hope you haters have enough class to come back and apologize for being so harsh after you see this film. I have a feeling if you go see it with an open mind, you'll be singing a different tune.

I love the images, and I particularly love that Michael Fassbender is in this movie but the simple fact that a movie called X-Men: First Class lacks one of the series icons and one of its most popular characters (my favorite), I just can't get behind it....

Stoked. A fresh take is what X-men needed. The books started in the 60s so start the Series in the 60s. Hopefully the next films will be in the 70s and 80s.

I still don't get why people bash movies before they come out... well before they come out... and when they're still filming.

I've been wrong before with my 'wait and see' mindset (i.e., Ghost Rider, Elektra, etc.), but I think I save myself a lot of stress with it.

With that said. I am excited having seen these pictures. I love the X-Men and they were the first comic I ever read as a kid. I just hope that this isn't one of the disappointments I mentioned earlier.

I'll be the first one to give this a bad idea. Why, because Fox has burned me to many times. Why else, because so far, I'm not blown away and can't get over that the only real first class member in the film is beast. I haven't seen the trailer, but really and truly I'll be convinced once I have seen the film and walk away satisfied. It's nothing against Vaughn or the cast....I'm just not sold yet.

I think this will be good, but I doubt it'll top X-men 2, the best X-men film to date. A Xavier/Magneto origins movie isn't as awesome as a true X-men film, and I look forward to Green Lantern, Thor, and Captain America a little more becuase we've never seen them in movies.

This is more like it. I love the whole X-Men universe ever since I was a little kid watching the cartoons and I am glad that we are getting another X-Men movie. It's a comic that deserves to be treated and handled with care 100%. Vaughn is just the man to do it (other than Singer, of course) to give the X-Men movies a good name again.

Even though I am excited for this movie, The Green Lantern is still my most anticipated comic book movie. It looks fantastic and I do not understand why there

Tidbit? Nope. Nothing has looked or sounded right to me since the retro time period was announced. Am I the only one that read the part in the trailer description where they EXPLAIN why Xavier becomes bald in this? Friggin' lame. I'm waiting for tons of witty wink-wink one-liners, too. Like the yellow spandex line from X1 times 100. Oh well, I guess I can say these pics have turned my thumb from down to sideways. I'm still going to watch and see for myself. . .

Fassbender. McAvoy, Byrne, Lawrence and Bacon are great actors and Vaughn is a talented director.

I'm very much looking forward to a trailer to see what sort of tone they are going for.
