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. X-Men: First Class is expected to be released in theaters on June 3rd, 2011, and it stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Caleb Landry Jones, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, Edi Gathegi, and Jason Flemyng.
