Forgive us if we can’t muster up a lot of enthusiasm for X-Men: First Class. Except for the appearance of The Beast (above – come on, he looks pretty cool) there’s not a lot in this trailer we haven’t seen before. Also, the whole idea of going back to the early ’60s to set up another meaningless story about the rivalry between Professor X and Magneto just sounds so boring, dahling. Oh well, at least X-Men: First Class – which opens June 3 – has January Jones (Mad Men) as Emma Frost.
Feature:SXSW audience fave delivers cheap thrills
Opens March 9 at the Rio Theatre. Shawn Conner review.
