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.




And in other news, X-Men: First Class lost out to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 for "Must See Movie of the Summer", but the likes of Green Lantern and Captain America: The First Avenger weren't even nominated, so I'm not too worried about that!

X-Men: First Class is set to be released in the UK on June 1st and in the US on June 2nd.

shit,should use music from that era...........the f*ckin 60s.
SuperDude001 - 5/11/2011, 2:28 PM
Damn you beat me just by a second Josh! Argh!
Oh well :) I'm actually started to like the song. The lyrics are odd for the movie but the tune sounds good for First Class.
BTW to anyone who thinks it makes sense to use 60s music, well how does it make sense? It's still modern movie.

@marvel72

i agree that makes more sense to use music from the 60s for the movie.
CherryBomb - 5/11/2011, 2:33 PM

Should've used Duffy or someone like that
her music if very vintage/retro inspired.

I'll say it again...SPOILER ALERT: You guys have taken this song out of context. The way it fits into the movies is as follows….The Take That song is realised in 'the not to distant future' Cable (who is played in the movie by Tom Selleck) hears it and decides it's a much bigger threat to the future than Apocalypse!

So he travels back in time armed with a wig and new legs for Xavier…sorry..for Charles, and in the back ground helps shape a new First Class of X men who's sole purpose for existence is to learn to deal with their mutant abilities and become a deadly assassination force that will take out Take That before they ever realise a single….

result the whole continuity of the X-universe is FUBAR, but a least we can sleep in our beds knowing that Take That are no more…
Triptheorist - 5/11/2011, 2:53 PM
@Reaver Don't joke about Tom Selleck a.k.a The Stache. Just don't do it.
ScottPilgrim - 5/11/2011, 3:08 PM
I quite like it not going to lie. I think it will work if they put some catchy credit visuals. A Jane Goldman script and Take That doing the song over the credits its Stardust all other again, excellent.

I thought boy bands died about a decade ago...jeez...Fox, you suck so much balls.
Ghostfire - 5/11/2011, 3:12 PM
Bad choice even for the credits. I agree, use music from that era or like CherryBomb said use something that at least sounds old school.
AC1 - 5/11/2011, 3:18 PM
They had the perfect opportunity to do a CBM... with the BEATLES IN THE SOUNDTRACK! AND THEY CHOSE TAKE [frick]ING THAT!!!
FFS!

Just saw a new trailer for the movie though, if possible it looks even better, dunno if it's been posted here yet... It showed this awesome scene with Mags using his power to throw a submarine across the beach.
TopCat89 - 5/11/2011, 3:22 PM
That was just...awful
AC1 - 5/11/2011, 3:28 PM
Robbie Williams - a prime example of human product testing over decades.
TopCat89 - 5/11/2011, 3:29 PM
@ACira i haven't seen that either....could you post it up, or tell me where you watched it? sounds cool!
comicb00kguy - 5/11/2011, 3:32 PM
Using a modern song destroys the whole point of using the '60s as the setting for this film. About the best thing about the 60's (besides it being a great time to be born) was the music. I could understand if they wanted to use a new cover of a 60s classic to have a new song to market for the soundtrack, but this "Take That" thing is just bland and awful.

But wait. We FINALLY got rid of the boy bands in America. I haven't had my ears assaulted with any of their bland dreck in quite a while. Is this one rare instance where America is actually ahead of England on something music-related?

This is the first thing I have hated from First Class..

Sad that Robbie Williams is back in a boy band; very obviously not happy about not having the limelight, he's the only one spazzing out, getting in everyone else's camera shots and headbutting the lead singer at the end. I definitely think this'll be a late in the credits thing, and while its not great, its better than the turd Foo Fighters farted out 4 Thor. I thought their song "Learn to Fly" was the worst thing Id heard until "Learn to Walk." I'm pretty sure the record labels pay for this crap to get in there.
jimoakley666 - 5/11/2011, 3:43 PM
Extreme gayness. Thankfully just on the end credits though. There's no way it will be featured in the film.
SeaSerpentine - 5/11/2011, 3:51 PM
Should have used Creedence Clearwater Revival.
pucrepeap - 5/11/2011, 3:53 PM
uhhhhh....
pucrepeap - 5/11/2011, 3:55 PM
I still vote Friday.
HBOMB83 - 5/11/2011, 4:05 PM


LOL! Robbie Williams in an old man boy band. It won't last long everyone else in the group looked uncomfortable with his antics.
AlexdoxA - 5/11/2011, 4:21 PM
Not bad
DEATHbyEXILE - 5/11/2011, 4:25 PM

Spidey91 - 5/11/2011, 4:40 PM
It's like when a Foo Fighters song was announced for Thor...it was only in the movie credits :P
Illuminatus - 5/11/2011, 4:47 PM
I bet Bryan Singer chose this song to be in Photoshop Class. Backstreet Boys in X2, and now this headache inducing garbage.

I have ten bucks that says Lady Gaga will make a special song just for Photoshop Class 2: Advanced Photoshop Posters.
ThePrince - 5/11/2011, 5:00 PM
wow. that was worse than Catwoman and Elektra rolled into one.
Shadowmaster35 - 5/11/2011, 5:40 PM
I made it to a minute and then my ears started to bleed. owwwwww
Reaver - 5/11/2011, 7:46 PM
@Triptheorist sorry about my casting choice, I pass the gauntlet to you! who should play Cable?
MovieTheaterLad - 5/11/2011, 8:11 PM
This song reminds me alot of the 90's cartoon. Lots of synths and heavy beats, with a bit of an "us against the world" vibe.

I would've saved this song for the 80's X-Men movie they plan on making, but this is fine if it's only for the end credits.
MovieTheaterLad - 5/11/2011, 8:13 PM
OH SNAP! ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW WHAT IT REMINDS ME OF?!?!!?

It reminds me alot of Nazi Germany...

Like, it's good marching music, and I can imagine Nazis marching to it while wearing heavy boots and those cool leather jackets. Kinda fits given the subject matter.
luckylu - 5/11/2011, 8:46 PM
this is how fox adds insult to injury
MovieTheaterLad - 5/11/2011, 9:43 PM
@luckylu

You're just weak.
johnnymarr - 5/12/2011, 4:52 AM
Take That?
AARGH!

Where's The Beatles and The Stones?

MovieTheaterLad - 5/12/2011, 6:48 AM
Hey guys!

Remember how Watchmen had that My Chemical Romance cover of "Desilation Row" but still had lots of music from the 70's and 80's in the soundtrack?

No? Nobody wants to remember? Okay.
Orphix - 5/12/2011, 7:47 AM
Awwwww - you bought a smile to my face MTL.

Good point, well made!
xXkryptoniteXx - 5/12/2011, 8:16 AM
Lmao.... I'm still watching it and it seems like they are trying to do it like James bond, I won't be surprise if they have an opening scene with the song and some artistic style. I hate the song but can't judge till I watch the movie this June 3.
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 5/12/2011, 10:16 AM
They should fill this soundtrack with Hendrix! That would be awesome!
