Busy weekend for yours truly – this is the first time in a long while (probably in the last six months or so) where I was actually able to pull off seeing TWO movies in one weekend. How about that, eh? And it only gets better – I already have plans this Friday night to see Green Lantern, so make that THREE films in one week. Not too shabby, if I may say so.
But I’ll save the Green Lantern and DC Comics chatter for this weekend. Right now, it’s all about X-Men and Marvel, and I figured I’d start my pair of reviews with the film that I saw SECOND, not for any particular reason, mainly because it came out before the other film (Super 8) did, so I decided that I’d post this one first. Plus, what do X-Men: First Class and Super 8 have in common? There are already great reviews for these films that can be found on this site (FK99 did X-Men, while Adolfo tackled Super 8). Then again, you know what they say – it’s never official unless I, SportsGuy515, review it (hahaha, just kidding).
SO, without further adieu, let’s get on with my take on X-Men: First Class…
We’ve been waiting for a new X-Men film for quite some time now, including the infamous Magneto solo film, but Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and X-Men 2: X-Men United, is dishing out some secrets about the story of the film:
-The movie is set in the 1960s. JFK is President.
-Charles Xavier will have hair and use of his legs (mostly).
-The Hellfire Club are the antagonists, with Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones as Emma Frost (which means they are indeed ignoring the character as established in WOLVERINE).
-Costumes will be more “comic bookish” than previous mutant movies.
-No Cyclops or Jean Grey. But there are still MORE characters we haven’t heard about yet.
-The movie will have “a much more international feel than the prior X-MEN movies.”
I hope its good. You can read the entire article here.
