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.
Inspired by classic Sixties movie titles and prompted by John Struan of Super Punch fame, I've built a 1960s style title sequence for the upcoming X-Men: First Class film.
Set during the midst of the Cuba Missile Crisis, X-Men: First Class tells the story of the first team coming together, before they would become the heroes and villains we know from the original X-Men Trilogy.
When sad-sack loser Frank sees his ex-addict wife willingly snatched by a seductive drug dealer, he finds himself bereft and wholly unable to cope. But soon he decides to fight back under the guise of a DIY superhero called Crimson Bolt. With a hand-made suit, a wrench, and a crazed sidekick named Boltie, the Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife. The rules were written a long time ago: You are not supposed to molest children, cut lines or key cars; if you do, prepare to face the wrath of the Crimson Bolt!
Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, Michael Rooker, and Kevin Bacon star.
The teenage years of the mutants are explored at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.
It's the early years of Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). The team lineup seems a bit odd, but we'll see. Rose Byrne, Oliver Platt, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kevin Bacon also star.
Can watching too much Kevin Bacon on the Logitech Revue with Google TV actually turn you into Kevin Bacon? Ivan Cobenk has his fingers crossed.
Kevin Bacon plays a Kevin Bacon obsessed fan. So how far is this from reality?
