Twentieth Century Fox takes fans back to where it all started with First Class, which tells the origin of Professor X and Magneto's relationship, scheduled for theatrical release this July.

X-Men First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

I'm lovin' every bit of promo stuff I've seen thus far. This movie really gives me hope again the X-men movie franchise will be able to find it mojo again. They'll definitely have my $$ come opening weekend.

I agree. I had little to no faith in this at first but the more I see of it the more intrigued I am.
