If you’re like me, with each photo and trailer (posters not included) that’s revealed from X-Men First Class, excitement and anticipation slowly rises. It seems like director Matthew Vaughn, with an extremely talented cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and others, might have actually pulled off something special. We won’t know for sure for a few weeks but, if the pacing and energy of this seemingly simple clip from the film is any indication, June 3 can’t come soon enough.
Check it out, as well as a few new TV spots, after the jump.
Thanks to Yahoo Movies for this kick ass clip called Magic Trick.
Simple, short, but McAvoy’s presence and the totally surprised look of everyone else in the room just seems to give a great indication of where Vaughn is going with this. It’s a boardroom scene but it’s intense.
The marketing machine for First Class is also ramping up as we’re less than a month from release. Coming Soon has a slew of new TV spots that are popping up but, no need to pause your Tivo, we’ve got them for you right here. The good thing is, each one has new footage that wasn’t included in the theatrical trailer or other TV spots. (Though, admittedly, they do recycle a bunch of the same money shots.)
I never watch TV spots online, to me it seems kind of pointless, but I devoured these. Though X-Men is a well-known, popular property, it’ll be interesting to see if the period setting will turn off younger viewers. After watching the clip and TV spots it seems like X-Men First Class is going to put a premium on relationships and impossible responsibilities over action and explosions. One can hope.
What do you think about these clips and commercials?
