Movies: X-Men - First Class Expectations

If it worked for Star Trek, then it should work for X-Men. 

At least that is what the makers of X-Men: First Class are hoping, as they prepare to release the new film next month world wide. In First Class, the history dial is set back to the dawn of the mutants, 1963 to be exact, and follows the upbringing, and life of the more aged mutants of the original X-Men series such as Professor X and Magneto. 

So far, I am liking what I am seeing from this new take on the series. I remember seeing the first two or three X-Men movies years back, and I quite enjoyed them, but as the series dragged on, the quality went south, especially the disaster that is know as Origins: Wolverine. 

So as long as they keep the story fresh, stay away from the gimmicky plot devices that have become the kryptonite of many recent comic adaptations, and respect the audience's need for a good film, First Class should be the first in what appears to be three new X-Men films.

Out in theaters June 3rd 2011

  4. I had absolutely no idea that they're making a new X-Men movie. I'm really bad at keeping up with movies, it seems. Probably will get some friends to go see it with me.
