Some cool X-Men: First Class publicity shotsTotal Film a British film magazine has some very cool photos of the X-Men: First Class cast. Even though I have yet to really dig any of the X-Men films I remain hopeful that this movie may finally be the one to break the mold. Optimistic would be the wrong word to use, because even though I have loved every movie Matthew Vaughn has directed this will still be a Fox X-Men film and 0-4 doesn't give me alot of confidence.
That being said I have enjoyed what I have seen so far and these images seem to reinforce that cool 60's vibe that I think could really work. In fact, the only character that isn't doing it for me so far is Emma Frost, every time I see January Jones I see Betty Draper and it's too weird seeing her in this context, but that's a minor quibble. I have given up on ever getting any kind of faithful X-Men adaptation to the screen so if this movie can deliver a cool period flick about mutants with even a splash of X-Men flavor I will be a happy camper. So check out the images below and let me know if they work for you.
