Gallery: Back Online

You may or may not have noticed that in the past week, the gallery did a little disappearing act. Never fear! I have been working behind the scenes on it, revamping it and moving it to a new location of jamesmcavoy.org/gallery/. I have replaced lots of LQ images with HQ versions, and I have finally managed to complete all of James’ previous public appearances. I still have lots more to add, but for now check out the hundreds of new additions!

“X-Men: First Class” First Stills

At last, the first stills and teaser poster for X-Men: First Class have been released! First Class tackles the origin story of Bryan Singer’s X-Men film world, warping back to the 1960s to show how the rivalry between Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) first sparked up.

There’s pressure on the cast, too, with McAvoy talking up the challenge of slipping into Patrick Stewart’s shoes as Xavier. “This isn’t a reboot, so I’m not replacing anyone, in which case you might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from what had been done before,” McAvoy says. “This is a prequel, so I’m the same character, just younger, but the challenge for me – and for Michael — is to show the same person in a different place in their life; to show someone before they’re this bad guy, before they’re this saint. Charles wasn’t always a monk, this selfless, sexless monk that he becomes.”

Details of ‘X-Men: First Class’ Trailer Surface

With only five months away from the release of “X-Men: First Class”, everyone is looking forward to the first trailer. While it has not come out yet, a source who claims to have watched the trailer describes it to The Daily BLAM!.

The trailer is said to open with the 20th Century Fox logo “which pans up as the two spotlight beams cross and form a white ‘X’ on the left of the screen. A white circle goes around the ‘X’ forming the X-Men logo, as Magneto’s helmet comes up on the right.”

Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen, who portrayed Professor X and Magneto in “X-Men” trilogy, reportedly voice over the opening lines about destiny and which side will you stand for while their scenes in previous “X-Men” movies are featured. The video then jumps to see young Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr meeting for the first time, followed by a different angle of the scene from the opening of X-Men in the concentration camp.

The next scene shows the outside part of an old castle-style building that resembles the X-mansion. James McAvoy’s Xavier and Michael Fassbender’s Erik are seen walking through the halls. The words “One wanted peace” are flashed by Xavier. Erik is later seen “yelling dramatically as metal tables in the room begin to float around him. Xavier and Erik shake hands with a tall man in a lab coat introduced as Dr. McCoy.”

The words “The other was too far gone” flash as Erik, who seems to be upset, storms through a hallway killing guards as he passes them. The scene is then cut to show what appears to be “a red Nightcrawler with swords taking out a room full of people; the close up reveals Azazel’s face.”

“The Hellfire Club stand next to Xavier on a bed as Emma goes into diamond form. Oliver Platt and Kevin Bacon were next to Emma in black aristocratic clothes… Mystigue on a bed with her skin turning black; Beast is shown transforming, with his feet growing and toes webbing and fur growing.”

Havok unleashes a red beam of energy from his chest (Havok’s powers in comics are unleashing blue energy). “It then shows Beast all blue and furry in the pilot seat of a crashing jet, followed by several rockets flying towards an island.”

Xavier’s head is later seen beginning to go bald as he mentally pulls a large ship that was sinking out of the water, as well as some smaller boats around it. The trailer is back to the scene when Xavier, still having hair, telling Erik he only wanted peace for him, and he replies there was never a chance for anyone to have that.

The final scene shows Erik picking up a black helmet, wearing a black and red suit and the helmet. “X-Men: First Class” logo appears again towards the end of the video, followed by the movie’s release date.

“X-Men: First Class” is directed by Matthew Vaughn and due June 3. 20th Century Fox has not given any official sneak peek to the action sci-fi flick yet.
