EW.COM PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: ‘X-Men: First Class’ trailer targets Facebook fanbase tomorrow
Mutants can control minds, burn through walls, control the weather — and now, they can “friend.”
The trailer for the superhero reboot X-Men: First Class goes up tomorrow, with Fox is releasing it in on Facebook as part of an effort to build a social networking community around the film, opening June 3. The fan page can be found at Facebook.com/XMenMovies, and it’s already 1.6 million wannabe-mutants strong.
The trailer will offer fans a first look at the younger years of Professor X and his team of superpowered pupils. The movie, directed by Kick-Ass filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, stars James McAvoy (Atonement) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) in the Professor X and Magneto roles, respectively. Mad Men‘s January Jones co-stars as Emma Frost, the ultra-sexy Marvel Comics telepath known for her revealing white outfits and diamond-skin armor.
There are many questions surrounding the movie, and a big one can be asked about this mysterious new photo from Fox, released exclusively to EW.
