Thoughts on the X-Men Trailer

Those of who follow the X-Men: First Class Facebook page were given an early look at the new trailer for the upcoming film (everybody else saw it on YouTube like, 5 minutes later), and I gotta say...

... it still looks boring and kinda dumb.

A couple things stand out though, and I wanted to share my thoughts.

1) It takes place during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I'm a fan of any major historical event being tied in with Super-Heroes. It tends to ground the goofy silliness that's happening for an hour and a half (like Magneto lifting a submarine out of the water from the inside of the Blackbird? Hmm?), and the trailer does have a very 60's chic to it.

2) Kevin Bacon is the super villain. According to IMDB he plays Sebastian Shaw, the leader of the Hellfire Club. I don't read Marvel comics, so I had to look up who this character is, and the resemblance is uncanny!

3) January Jones plays Emma Frost. Do you all know who January Jones is? The show "Mad Men" does not do her justice. She is a babe. And her knockers are rockin', if I can put that as indelicately as possible. There's not much to see from the trailer (she's mid-diamond-ing in the one viewable scene of her), but if Director Matthew Vaughn wants to do Marvel fans right he'll put her in nothing but a bra, leggings and a cape before the closing credits roll.

Judge for yourself, take a peek at the trailer and tell us what you think. Are we looking at another X-Men Origins: Wolverine?
