X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Character Trailers for Banshee, Havok, and Beast

     May 5, 2011


While Fox may be striking out with their posters for X-Men: First Class, the trailers continue to be fantastic.  The studio has released three new trailers for the film, each focusing on a different mutant: Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones), Havok (Lucas Till), and Beast (Nicholas Hoult).  One of my main concerns about the movie is that it will be overstuffed with mutants like X-Men: The Last Stand.  However, these brief character trailers give me hope that the film has devoted time to each of the characters to not only show their abilities, but also to illustrate their personalities.  However, in the trailers for Banshee and Havok, we get an even better sense of Xavier with James McAvoy doing an excellent job of conveying the character’s compassion.

Hit the jump to check out the trailers.  X-Men: First Class also stars Michael Fassbender, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon.  It opens 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.
