X-Men: First Class international trailer has even more cool stuff

Apr. 27, 2011by:

Yes, just this morning we posted the full theatrical trailer for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, while at the same time expressing dismay about the multitude of previous global variant teasers with nominal differences.

But this international version of the new trailer has some significant deviations (and better editing), with lots of cool additional footage of characters both mutant and human (Wise! Platt! Ironside!).

Extra Tidbit: At this point, does anyone care that Charles and Erik don't really resemble or sound like Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellan?

I'm torn.

All of these trailers look really cool, but its just so hard to accept the departure from the source material so severely. The more prequels they make to the X-men franchise, the more they depart from the comic books and the cohesiveness of their combined narrative. Instead of sequels, prequels, and interquels, each film should just be a stand-alone story. Trying to link it all together just seems clumsy and robs each film of its freedom to meet its potential.

Think of it as a What If? story. What If Xavier and Magneto had founded the X-Men together? Smallville works on the same basic premise: What If Clark Kent and Lex Luthor had been friends in Smallville? The only problem here is that Havok cannot possibly be Scott's brother because he's a generation older. But still, Magneto, Mystique, Havok, Banshee, Beast... it's the X-Men (pre Scott and Jean). It doesn't matter what other characters they retcon in.

i agree with the dude below. its like those What If comics... but something about Mystique in an X-Men uniform just seems off...

Heh.

Extra tidbit: at least they didn't cast Tom Hardy as a young, bald Xavier.

Looks amazing

Each trailer makes me more and more excited for this movie. The action looks awesome, the story looks solid, even the music is just freaking epic (i hope the song near the end is in the film). The only thing I'm not sold on yet is McAvoy. I like him as an actor, I thought he was great in movies like Atonement and Last King of Scotland, but I just don't think he fits as Professor X. He gets a little annoying by the end of this trailer, especially with the "two super powers" line. But I'm still

This trailer actually got me interested in the movie. Also the fact that Ray Wise and Micheal Ironside are in it doesn't hurt matters either.

Well that looks a lot better than the one we saw earlier today, but I don't know, I'm really far from sold on this new X-Men movie...

Oh yeah, Much better editing! Now you really get a feel for the scope. And for Magneto's escapades as the a lethal secret agent.
