I still think that this movie is a terrible idea but the trailer looks better than I thought it would. The film stars James McAvoy as Professor X and
Michael Fassbender as Magneto. The film is a prequel of the first three films, taking place in the 1960's and will involve the origin of the Xavier's
X-Men and Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. The main antagonist is Sebastian Shaw (played by Kevin Bacon) who will appear with the Hellfire Club. It
is directed by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust, Kick-Ass) and will be released on June 3rd, 2011.
The other cast includes January Jones as Emma Frost/White Queen, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Nicholas Hoult as Henry "Hank" McCoy/Beast, Jennifer
Lawrence as Raven Darkholme/Mystique, Zoë Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy/Banshee, Lucas Till as Alex Summers/Havok,
Edi Gathegi as Armando Muñoz/Darwin, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Álex González as Janos Quested/Riptide, Tony Rich as Thomas (a mutant that can
replicate other mutant powers), Oliver Platt as "Man in Black", Laurence Belcher as a younger Charles Xavier, Bill Milner as a younger Erik Lehnsherr,
Morgan Lily as a younger Raven Darkholme, Andy Callaghan as an unknown member of the Hellfire Club, and Ray Wise as the United States Secretary of

I think it could be good, the trailers a bit iffy but holds promise.
I remember Patrick stewart or was it Ian Mcellan on Jonothan Ross show talking about this project when X 3 came about.
Which ever one it was said they were going to use the same tech that made them look young in X3 to make this film. I guess they dropped the idea.
I prefered Wolverine to all 3 X-men films, and I preffered that older movie (I could have sworn it was called "Generation X" but can't find anything
on it) even more so.
(It had Cyclops, Jubilee and Xavier) anyone remember???
That website made my anti-virus software very angry. I don't know if there is really anything there, but you might want to scan your computer to be
I didn't go to the site but I think you are probably talking about the made-for-TV movie "Generation X" that came out in 1997 or so, around the
same time as the comic. I only saw it the time it aired, all I can really remember is Banshee, White Queen, and Matt Frewer (whoever he played).
