THIS JUST IN! X-Men: First Class trailer is finally here!

I’ve had the X-Men Facebook page up all day long but it’s been a hectic day filled w/ meetings. But when I hit refresh a few minutes ago, voila!! You already know how much I’ve been anticipating this and was hoping this was released during the Superbowl. But now it’s finally here! I don’t want to keep you a moment longer, so behold…

Looks like they’ve also released the official logo, which is the same as the one I posted with the still photos I posted earlier this month.

The Plot:

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 Lehnsherr 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 prevent nuclear 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.

My initial reaction is OMG! Holy goosebumps!!! I’m really digging the tone that Matthew Vaughn’s done for this film, this certainly promises greatness that Bryan Singer brought with the first ever X-Men film 11 years ago (boy, time flies doesn’t it?) It’s perfect casting to have James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as Professor X and Magneto. I’m glad the film is focusing on the dynamics between the two and how the most bitter enemies sometimes start out as friends. The rest of the cast is pretty good, too: Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence  (one of this year’s Best Actress nominees for Winter’s Bone), Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon and January Jones.

I absolutely CAN’T WAIT to see this one. Now, what do you all think?
