Twentieth Century Fox has debuted a new photo of Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme/Mystique and Nicholas Hoult as Henry McCoy/Beast in X-Men: First Class. The trailer flashed the same shot of the two, apparently on a date in the Blackbird hangar, but here it is again, courtesy of the movie's Facebook page.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, X-Men: First Class also stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr, January Jones as Emma Frost, Lucas Till as Alex Summers/Havok, Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy/Banshee, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Oliver Platt as the Man in Black, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggart and Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore.
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 Lehnsherr 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 prevent nuclear 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.
The movie opens on June 3.
