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), Zo� Kravitz ("Californication"), Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man), Lucas Till (Walk the Line), and Oliver Platt ("The West Wing").
