X-Men First Class [20th Century Fox]
Release Date: June 3
Starring: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Bacon, Michael Fassbender
The X-Men are just like you and your teammates—except they have superpowers. That aside, the X-Men have always found that working together accomplishes goals faster than working alone. Those who go against the team are generally isolated and unsuccessful. So, take this movie as a chance to bond with your crew and develop teamwork.
X-Men First Class takes us back to the beginning of the X-Men saga in 1963, when Charles Xavier [McAvoy] started a school for mutants with superhuman abilities. The original students went on to form a team called the X-Men, except that one of them, Erik Lensherr [Fassbender], later became Xavier's archenemy, Magneto. And we all know how that turned out!
In this prequel, however, the two are friends who work together to defuse the Cuban Missle Crisis, "the greatest threat the world has ever known."
