Director Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Kick Ass) tells the origins of the multi-billion dollar film franchise, guiding exceptional performances by James McAvoy (Atonement), Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), and Kevin Bacon (Mystic River). X-MEN: FIRST CLASS has drawn $150 million at the domestic box office and nearly $350 million worldwide.

Before Charles Xavier (McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time, working together to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. The film features a star-studded supporting cast, including Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone), January Jones ("Mad Men"), Rose Byrne (28 Weeks Later), Zoƫ Kravitz ("Californication"), Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man), Lucas Till (Walk the Line), and Oliver Platt ("The West Wing").

• 10 Marvel X-Men Digital Comics with exclusive X-Men: First Class Backstory Comic
