Filmonic have uncovered this rather fantastic Russian trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s (Kick Ass, Layer Cake) ‘X-Men: First Class’ featuring a tonne of new footage from the film. Out of all the comic book-inspired flicks released this summer, this is the one I’m looking forward to most. The cast assembled is top notch and the mood looks real intense. ‘X-Men: First Class’ is set for release June 3rd 2011. Two thumbs up – held high!

”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 Lensherr 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 stop 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.”
