New Image from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

     March 2, 2011


Fox has released a new image from Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class.  The image shows off villains Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) and Emma Frost (January Jones).  What is the purpose of the mirrored, neon-blue room they’re standing in?  If I had to guess, it’s where their villainous gang The Hellfire Club goes when they want to give their rods and cones a workout.  If you want to be evil, you got to keep the eyeballs sharp.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  X-Men: First Class also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, and Oliver Platt.  The film 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.
