Here’s the first small image of the assembled cast for Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class. Left to right, we see: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.

Emma looks like a cheap prostitute and Mystique looks like she was dunked in a bucket of paint. sad.gif

I never really held out any hope for this movie but really, THAT is what they choose to make my Emma look like?

I wasn't going to see this film before I saw this picture.

Not I'm not even going to see this film times two. This movie we make Seth Rogen's Green Hornet look good and more people will be laughing at it...and it's not supposed to be a comedy.

What the Hell are they thinking? If you're one those guys who hated the original X-Men films....look what you have to look forward to now.

MMMMM...Rose Byrne

Other than that. No thanks, no way. Too much crap involved in the characters chosen alone.

Is this not supposed to take place before the other movies? At least they got that Jean Grey knock off White Queen in there. I was worried. LAME!

I don't think they're tying it to the original trilogy as much as to the Wolverine film. It's all messed up really. 4 movies and already continuity is screwed up beyond belief.

As for Emma, I mean no offense to the girl playing her, January Jones, as I don't know her from anyone or anything honestly, but just doing a google image search real quick... could they really have gone with another look with this actress?

That said, Rose Byrne is attractive, but I don't know her either. Wanted's James McAvoy is an odd choice for me for Charles (and hair?). Glad to see Havok there, but still, I've thought from day one this was going to be bad, and none of this so far is proving me wrong. Ugh.

I think think of about 5 people off the top of my head better for Emma than January Jones.... and no, one of them isn't me. wink.gif (Although I'd totally make a better Emma.) biggrin.gif

I'd rather re-watch the old generation X movie a million times in a row than see this load of crap.

Has Emma Frost ever looked like anything other than a cheap prostitute? I think I'll wait for the trailer before judging the movie's content. Matthew Vaughan is a noted director, so he should be able to do something entertaining. Mystique' make up is similar to the original movie. I was kinda hoping that Magneto would have white hair, a side effect of his mutation. James McEvoy is a good actor, so here is hoping he can play the part. I agree about the hair, but maybe as his powers grow, he may lose his hair.

Beast makeup looks good. The X outfits look a tad too Tron like, however.

I don't think anything could be as bad as Generation X, however. Not even a comic book written and drawn by Rob Liefeld could be that bad.

I was on of those people who did not like X-men. I felt too many egos spoilt the broth, alot of the actors involved were bad actors or not given good material. Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, he cannot escape the role.

I loved the first two X-Men films personally. The third just tried to cram too much into it. And I enjoyed most of the Wolverine movie.

And no, nothing could be as bad as that Generation X movie... save for the Nick Fury movie starring the Hoff...

Well, apparently there's some controversy over whether this image is real or not:

Emma has, in recent years, been wearing more clothing. The fact that she's in a bra.... honestly kinda pisses me off. Emma is my girl, to see her dressed up like a stripper just for the sake of having her tits hang out.... yeah.... not happy about that.

I hope it is fake.

I agree though, I liked the first two X-movies and Wolverine.

Yeah I actually believe Fox on this one, some of the characters look a bit too photoshopped.

I want to personally thank you for making me laugh as hard as I did, I loved your comment.
I liked her better in the Gen X days where she wore a corset.. wait, maybe that way the Byrne era.. I can't remember anymore.

The image is not a great first impression for the film not digging the look, having said that its only a first look so until some footage or a trailer is released il reserve judgement on this one tongue.gif

Thank you, thank you. *takes a bow* You can find more of my glowing wit on the show. wink.gif (I never miss an opportunity to plug the show. wink.gif)

I like her in her corset too. I also like what Dodson has done with her. Pants AND the only think showing is her belly! *shocked*

I reserve judgment for the final product. No need to get worked up yet, eh?

First off, the image is totally fake. Emma being the easiest example of fakery - they aren't going to just have her wear a freaking Fredricks of Hollywood bra. Off the rack costuming? Only in no-budget flicks. She's definitely going to be fancier than that.

Secondly, it has a director that has done some really damn good stuff. Both Kick-Ass and Stardust impressed the hell out of me. Sure, a good director can only help a crap script so far, but I'm certainly willing to give the film the benefit of the doubt based on his cred.

Third, I liked the Generation X tv movie and keep hoping for it to come out on DVD. At the very least it has Matt Frewer acting all crazypants evil. Sure, it's a laughable movie, but we can all use some laughs.

Stardust is the modern Princess Bride, easily.

Also anyone that thinks this is real, take a closer look at the beast, pretty sure that's Pearlman's face from the beast live action tv show from the early 90's.

Regardless if it's real or not, which looking closely I really do see the Photoshopiness of it, it is these actors, so while the costumes and makeup may not be accurate, it's still an uncanny (pun intended) depiction of what we're likely to see.

And Eric, while I admit Stardust was good, I don't see that comparison to The Princess Bride. Not saying one is better than the other, I just don't see that comparison at all personally. Maybe I'm alone on that.

Emma Frost. How she even became popular and a member of the X-Men and the "love of Scott Summers' life" still boggles my mind.

She's a Jean Grey wanna be, slept with more characters than the Black Widow and was only remotely interesting when she was a villain.

She got where she is today because perverted little comic book artists like to draw her and perverted little comic book geeks buy the books she appears in. And now they're hoping this follow suit for the movies. It's definitely not the "strength" of the stories she has appeared in.

Do these guys realize for price of three comic books you could go to strip club and see real boobs?
