Fox Star Studios to release X-Men: First Class on 10 June


MUMBAI: Fox Star Studios India is all set to release X-Men: First Class on 10 June in India.

The movie will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu across India.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn & starring James McAvoy, Michael  Fassbender, Kevin Becon, Rose Byrne and January Jones amongst many others, the film takes you back to where it all started. The storyline of the movie revolves around the friendship between Charles Xavier a.k.a. Professor X  and Erik Lensherr a.k.a. Magneto before it evolved into an eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-men.

Producer Bryan Singer explains that in spite of taking First Class into the 1960’s and introducing an almost new group of mutants, the prequel will connect to both X-men series loyalists as well as other film buffs. Singer further expresses how glad he was that Matthew Vaughn was to direct to the film. “Matthew has a deft hand with multiple characters and storylines, and a great love of the X-men universe. I feel the combination of this story and his vision will make for an exciting and original X-men film,” says Singer.

Michael Fassbender, who stars as the emotionally scarred Erik Lehnsherr, who will become the militant mutant known as Magneto adds; “These two brilliant minds coming together and their views aren’t that different on some key things. As you watch them you know that if their understanding, ability and intelligence could somehow come together it would be really special. But the split is what makes them even more interesting and tragic.”
