Fox has released the first trailer for X-Men: First Class.  As far as teaser trailers go, I think this one looks pretty cool. Michael Fassbender looks like he owns the role of Magneto and I like that it doesn’t try to throw too many special effects in your face. Also, I like the darker tone they’re establishing with Magneto making a dude stab himself and the dark cloud of the Cold War overshadowing the narrative.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Directed by Matthew Vaughn from a story by Bryan Singer, X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Oliver Platt.  The film is set to open June 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: First Class:

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.

The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon.  Matthew Vaughn (“Kick-Ass”) directs, and the producers are Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer.  Singer, who helmed the acclaimed blockbusters “X-Men” and “X2,” wrote the story for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
