X-Men First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.


Here is an excerpt from Movies.IE:

The Irish release date for the X-Men prequel FIRST CLASS has been brought forward to Monday - May 30th 2011. The film will now take the unusual step of opening on a Monday, something which worked very well for the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost film last week. Their movie PAUL made £5.5 million on its opening week at Irish and UK cinemas thanks to its valentines day head start.

X-Men: First Class is set to be released in the UK on June 2 and in the US on June 3, later this year!

ScottPilgrim - 2/22/2011, 12:12 PM
Why?....
naterator - 2/22/2011, 12:14 PM
it will make for a good watch on netflix

What about coming early to Canada, I'm interested in how they can fix the movie and make it interesting again. This movie can keep the trend going, but also can break it. I hope this movie will do it. As long as it's a well done movie and story, that's all I care. If the movie bombs in the box office but critics love cause of story and film I don't mind. Since people are not supporting it.

Despite all the complaining we do, we will all eventually see it!
naterator - 2/22/2011, 12:16 PM

xXkryptoniteXx - 2/22/2011, 12:16 PM
Also the upside on other countries is well know if it's good or just plain x3 bad
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/22/2011, 12:18 PM
@Spock I'm with you on that one, that's what xmen fans are.
RorMachine - 2/22/2011, 12:22 PM
Intuder, your right. Nothing is going to save this movie..from the fanboys. However I'm sure it will do just fine given the millions that will see it based on it's awesome trailer.
Bronemeister - 2/22/2011, 12:23 PM
Lol. Fantastic.
JoshWilding - 2/22/2011, 12:27 PM
What RorMachine said. :)
comicbookjerk - 2/22/2011, 12:29 PM

luckylu - 2/22/2011, 12:32 PM

Ven0m - 2/22/2011, 12:34 PM
This movie is going to suck who cares... BAAa bAAAAA BAaaa
JediMasterJimMorrison - 2/22/2011, 12:38 PM
... who cares?
jimoakley666 - 2/22/2011, 12:41 PM
It's only "controversial" on this website. Every other [frick]er wants to see it, self included.
vanillabear - 2/22/2011, 12:42 PM
hmmm why can't it be thor:(
ahh sure still gonna check it out:D
JonStarkgaryen - 2/22/2011, 12:42 PM
I think I'll go see this movie twice in theaters. First, to see it for myself and second, to piss off all you haters.
dfresh - 2/22/2011, 12:44 PM
@Intruder, I can't possibly understand where you get the connection that this movie is "retarded teen exploitation," similar to Twilight. You think the Thor movie looks more adult themed and deeper than this? You have serious blinders on buddy. Open up, there's a big world out there.
Spock - 2/22/2011, 12:48 PM
I hear all of u! Hell i didn't see DBZ tell it came on cable, Want a waste of cgi & film!
Moron - 2/22/2011, 12:50 PM
W00T YEAH I'M IRISH
Ven0m - 2/22/2011, 12:53 PM
The MK web mini series will be better than this movie.
supersteveprime18 - 2/22/2011, 12:56 PM
so it looks like il be able to see if its shit earlier than most cool.. not!!
Luther - 2/22/2011, 12:57 PM
DFresh..I agree.

"Fox is great at herding in sheep". You're doing the same, just with different sheep. So...shut the [frick] up. Bunch of sourpuss super nerd fanboys..you can all go to Hell. :)
dfresh - 2/22/2011, 1:08 PM
@intruder

"You know, for a crazy homeless person, he's pretty cut." [watching a shirtless Hemsworth]

"You made my men look like a bunch of minimum wage mall cops"

"This is definitely going on Facebook"

"Oh no, this is Earth, isn't it?"

You're right, that isn't aimed at the teenage mall generation at all.

And no, I haven't read the script. I actually want to enjoy these movies.
dfresh - 2/22/2011, 1:15 PM
Oh, and remind me again, who has Burger King kids meals toys planned for this summer? Is it Thor or X-Men?
JackSass - 2/22/2011, 1:16 PM
@ Luther: Get off the fence about fanboys. Tell how you really feel. Don't hold back. Be honest with us now..

@ Intruder: lmao @ "Studio 54" & "Tinkerbell".
Nice
SeaSerpentine - 2/22/2011, 1:18 PM
@dfresh Thor.
Boyle360 - 2/22/2011, 1:22 PM
I love being Irish.
vanillabear - 2/22/2011, 1:40 PM
Boyle360 @ me too mate:D
Luther - 2/22/2011, 1:53 PM
haha..I pretty much made an account to do to the fanboys, as the fanboys do to these films. Just talk shit. But, you must've missed points made about BEING OPEN MINDED about certain series/franchises.
I am not a "fanboy", as far as the know it all attitude is concerned. Hence why I hardly contribute towards such nonsense. If I'm right at the end of the day, I'LL know it..could care less about being "first" or whatever it is most here worry about.

My point with First Class is, it's NOT going to be a stand alone film. There WILL be a First Class 2, which will take place LATER, possibly 70/80s, in which they'll bring MORE characters, possibly ones who fit the time frame (look, attitude, tone, STORY, etc). TO most likely end at a third and final First Class film, in which, you'll more than likely have the original five completing an OFFICIAL "mission" AS the X-Men, how? Who knows. Will Bobby Drake be a child/tween? Possibly. And inadvertently help the X-Men..we don't know. But they can do some twisting with what we have already..to make it happen.

Comic.Book.Movie.com, you all show you all "KNOW" your comics. But none show that they know movies..c'mon.
marvel72 - 2/22/2011, 1:53 PM
the luck of the irish,personally i see this as bad luck.

countdown to thor continues,u.k release 29.4.11.

roughly 2 months can't wait.

banshee an irish character is an american in this,but thats alright.
higgins500 - 2/22/2011, 1:54 PM
Woop woop it's great to be Irish. Go banshee or should I say mr cassidy
dfresh - 2/22/2011, 1:56 PM
@intruder. There were TDK happy meal toys? I find that very hard to believe. At least not in the US anyway.

FYI, I can't see the embedded video, in case that answers my question.
DamoC - 2/22/2011, 2:02 PM
We also get all our dvd's early. were just more appreciative of movies. God I Love Being Irish.
DamoC - 2/22/2011, 2:05 PM
@intruder they were actually in burger king. the toys were all right my son(and me)still plays with his.
Luther - 2/22/2011, 2:12 PM
..a troll? See, I don't even know your internet lingo.

Pretty much you just ignored the latter part of the message.

And you're an idiot, that's all YOU had to say :)
nuck82 - 2/22/2011, 2:13 PM
