X-Men: First Class - trailer just released

I'm now getting excited about the movie - scheduled for release in early June. I love this trailer. (I need to get used to a young Charles Xavier with hair, but what the hey?)

Not impressed by that. They need to tackle some of the better X-Men sagas in a movie format, not create a new universe so rife with inconsistency that discussing it is actually moot.

Well, I do like that they've gone with a version of the original blue-and-gold uniform, and that they've given the X-Men an actual, old-school SR-71 Blackbird.

However, given recent X-film history, in particular that abysmal Wolverine movie, I'm not going into this one with high expectations. Hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

And did I just see Pixie?

Probably Angel Salvadore rather than Pixie.
