It seems like the quality of X-Men: First Class is inversely proportional to the difficulties faced in bringing it to the screen. These challenges, and how some of them were overcome, made up much of my chat with Matthew Vaughn at the weekend. We also talked about the X-Men film he almost made some years… Read more »

While Matthew Vaughn is literally recovering from the stresses and strains of making X-Men: First Class, a massive, complex and ambitious film that he delivered in amazing time before succumbing to some nasty, exhaustion-abetted tonsillitis, he’s also being gracious enough to speak to the press. Chatting with him on Sunday yielded a wonderful amount of… Read more »
The thing that jumps out at me the most about Brendon Connelly‘s embargo-induced non-review of X-Men First Class is the reference to X2. Because I’ve always thought of X2 as a level-up in the recent history of the comic book movie, in the same way that Tim Burton‘s Batman was for the generation before, and… Read more »
While the big press screenings for X-Men: First Class are yet to take place, I am lucky enough to have seen it already. Embargoes being what they are, I can’t exactly review the film right now, but I’m going to go ahead and tell you about it anyway, and I even promise a nice clear… Read more »
We’ve seen bits and bobs of this X-Men: First Class scene in trailers and TV spots, but here’s a full and uninterrupted 50 seconds. Just a few hours until I see the whole film now. Love it or hate it (and so far, I’m feeling very good about it), I’ll have an awful lot of coverage next… Read more »
In just under 48 hours I’ll have seen all of X-Men: First Class. Can’t wait. Of all the big summer studio films, this is by far and away my most keenly anticipated. Until then, let’s watch this new clip. Okay. Cool. I’m ready for the whole film now.
This one for the UK market. And again with the photographer leaning over and having a bit of a stumble. Come on chap, get yourself together to take a professional photo won’t you? People are watching. They’ve paid twenty pounds and everything,
The character trailer for X-Men: First Class‘ Mystique might seem to be mimicking one of yesterday’s a little. It’s only appropriate.
Click through on the banner above to make it good and big. We have Fox here in the UK to thank for this one. Now then. At my local Vue tonight, I saw several pieces of marketing material telling me that X-Men: First Class will now be getting released on May 30th. That’s a Monday,… Read more »
The BC was dominated by film and tv today, what with Rich on television (again!) and an X-Men First Class trailer exclusive and Brendon unearthing a bunch of other film stories, as usual. Also, there’s Greg Capullo Batman. Tomorrow? The world. Today… this: Most-Read Comic Stories Today: Greg Capullo’s First Batman And Robin Pencils This… Read more »
It’s X-Men: First Class. It’s a trailer. It’s international. And wherever you are, you’ve seen it here first. Make with the clicky. We know there’s been an American trailer recently released. And this is similar, certainly. But it also has footage you haven’t seen anywhere else. I’ll let Brendon tell you what – and why… Read more »
Time for more X-Men: First Class. What sets this new trailer apart from the others? Kevin Bacon‘s Sebastian Shaw using his rather striking mutant power. Still looking good.
There’s more new footage in these latest trailers for X-Men: First Class. We’re several trailers in now and I’m still leaning forward, keenly, ready to eat of director Matthew Vaughn’s hand. The first half of the trailer is biased towards the relationship between Charles and Eric, the second contains rather a lot more action. It’s… Read more »
There’s something here isn;t there? From Astonishing X-Men #1 And the new UK poster for X-Men: First Class At least The Beast doesn’t look like he’s wearing an oversized glittery nappy anymore.
And here it is. It’s like a shooting gallery isn’t it?
While I was sleeping, yet another X-Men: First Class image started doing the rounds. I woke up to five copies in my inbox. Here it is, showing Jennifer Lawrence and five kilos of rubber collaborating in the role of Mystique. There’s not a single bit of Ms. Lawrence visible here, every last scrap of her… Read more »
More mutants. And so soon. This leaked TV spot has a little bit of new footage, and a promise of “an exclusive new trailer at Facebook.com” – but that’s yet to appear. I’m keeping an eye out for it though. Thanks to Little Bleeder Jeff Cut for the video.
This film continues to tickle my fancy bone. Has anybody got a good caption in mind for this picture? I was racking my brain, but Fassbender’s strained face kept muddying my mental pool.
