Funky Fresh 60’s X-Men:First Class Faux Credit Sequence Makes Me Grin And Feel All Fuzzy On The Inside   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

Before Matthem Vaughn was announced as the director of X-Men:First Class I was having anxiety nightmare about A “Twilight styled” Marvel flick taking a huge bowel movement on my boyhood heroes; But alas Vaughn has surprised me yet again with where he has convinced Fox to take the story. Going back to the 60’s Kenndy era and WWII (the era the original comic was published and set in) is a stroke of pure genius.

Bringing Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Cold War into the mix will ground the characters in our world and bring a new dimention to the series. I trust the Vaughn to bring something special to the table and it looks from the first trailer he’s made a pretty solid X-Men film. Now here’s hoping it will be epic in scale and scope, fingers crossed.

An interesting fun little Saul Bassian type 60’s style opening credit sequence popped up online today. I’m pretty sure this is a fan made deal, but it is very cool none the less.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

X-Men:First Class Trailer Is All Kinds Of Awsomeness   1 comment

Hey Everybody,

I’ve been antously awaiting a look at X-Men:First Class since the news broke the Mathew Vaughn was taking the directing reins on the project. What first sounded like an absolute nightmare for true x-men fans (yes, the ones that though X3 was a serious down turn in the series, a real pile of shit), but I got very interested after hearing Vaughn was getting involved with Fox again on another X-Men project; The first being X3 for 3 months or so up here in Vancouver, until Fox decided to push for the release date instead of doing what Vaughn wanted, which was take a few more months to lock down a script on a project that had no finished script. I don’t think ever really did until the last day of shooting, at least that what it seems like with the result Ratner’s directing gave us.

Vaughn’s Idea for the First class movie sounded intriguing to me, to set it in the original time period portrayed in the original run of the comics, WW2 Germany to Kennedy era America. After seeing Vaughn’s other directorial efforts Layer Cake, Stardust and Kick Ass I’m hopeful, obviously a fan of  the comics himself, he has something really special to give long time X-Men fans.

The first trailer hit the internet this afternoon with eager fan watching it over and over, I’m figuring scrutinizing every detail it shows of the film. That a look below for all the awesomeness and decide for yourself whether you”ll be in the theater June 3rd or not. Make sure you turn the player to 1080p to get the full picture quality, the detail on the CG stuff is nice for a trailer especially. Enjoy.

My god is that shit cool or what? I think it looks super sick! Maybe more because I was was having nightmares of an X-Babys movie directed by another hack who doesn’t know shit about comics of the marvel universe, or real film making for example. I would say Matthew Vaughn has a perfect record on his films so far, it looks to me that X-Men:First Class is going to follow in that trend, maybe even bringing back some respect to the X-Men franchise for Fox . Defiantly looking more forward to June 3rd all of a sudden. Great Fucking Trailer Boys!!!

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
