Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

You’ve seen the amazing trailer for X-Men: First Class – now pore over every mutant detail, with our insane roundup of 75 screencaps. Welcome to the first meeting of our school for gifted mutants… whose mutant power is over-analyzing screencaps. Shall we begin?

So we start with a close-up of Professor X’s wheelchair, which he doesn’t actually need in this movie. As near as I can tell, it’s the same chair that Patrick Stewart sat in. On the desk, there are two figures which appear to be holding hands, and a tiny cannon.

The back of Patrick Stewart’s head wearing the Cerebro helmet – although he probably won’t be in this movie. (Maybe a cameo? Seems unlikely somehow.)

And then Charles Xavier in the early 1960s, looking extraordinarily foxy.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Magneto’s helmet and gloves, surrounded by candles and shit. There is a running theme of the two helmets in this trailer – the Cerebro helmet worn by Professor X, and Magneto’s helmet.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

The back of Magneto’s head, as he confronts some cops.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Young Erik, looking just as foxy as Charles Xavier.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Charles and Erik, together. Why are they being escorted by two cops through what looks like a prison? Are they prisoners – or on their way to visit a prisoner? An imprisoned mutant, perhaps?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

The mansion where the X-Men learn to be X-traordinary.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

The gang sitting and watching black-and-white TV together. From left to right, I believe that’s Erik/Magneto, Alex Summers/Havok, Raven/Mystique, Hank McCoy/Beast and Sean Cassidy/Banshee. Sitting down are scientist Moira MacTaggert and Charles Xavier.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Kennedy, looking foxy. And warning the Russians that any missile strike will be seen as an act of war.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Watching this, Charles Xavier and Moira exchange looks. Note that Erik is holding a gun. Something about Kennedy’s speech seems to have spurred the mutants into action – maybe to stop World War III?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Galvanised, Charles goes to open a Secret Locker full of serious shit… maybe some cool yellow costumes?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Emma Frost (January Jones) being held prisoner in a weird vault of weirdness.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvatore.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And here’s Zoe from the back, showing her dragonfly wings to Charles and Erik.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

A closer look at Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Lucas Till as Alex Summers/Havoc. What is that vault door he’s opening, and what’s that flame next to him? And why did he cut the sleeves off a perfectly good hoodie?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Edi Gathegi as Armando Munoz/Darwin.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Moira MacTaggert in someplace that looks like Oxford. Didn’t they do some filming there? Definitely Oxbridgey. I think we get to see either her or Charles Xavier graduate from Oxford in this film.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Closer look at Morgan Lily as Mystique, in bed. Why does she have a brass bell by her bedside?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And now she’s looking bluer…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

…and bluer…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

…and bluest.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

The Missile Crisis is on! An aircraft carrier launches a fighter.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Charles Xavier prepares to jump out of a plane and do something stunty. And he’s wearing the yellow uniform!

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

He asks Erik if he’s ready for this. And honestly, if James McAvoy looks at you that way and asks if you’re ready for something, the answer is always yes.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Erik says we’ll find out. Note that he and Charles Xavier are both wearing the yellow uniform!

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

A US ship launches a missile.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

It flies up into the sky.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And Beast, in the cockpit of a plane, looks somewhat alarmed. I’ve got to say, this version makes the Frazier Crane version look weak by comparison. Nice eyes.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Looks like Beast flies to intercept the missile, using his mega-genius IQ to do something clever.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Except that there’s not just one missile. There’s rather a lot.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Someone dives into the ocean, probably from that plane we saw earlier with the hatch open.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And I think it’s Erik!

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Erik, wearing a smooth leather jacket, uses his magnetism powers on someone, in a nice old-looking hallway. In Europe someplace, I’m guessing.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

A Russian soldier is on the receiving end of Erik’s wrath.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Erik has a hold of something, and he squeezes.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

and one Russian soldier is having a bad day.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Hank McCoy is freaked out by something around foot level.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And it turns out to be his foot! The original storyline of how Hank McCoy becomes blue and furry is pretty ridiculous in the comics, so any version they replace it with her will be a vast improvement.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And finally we meet our main villains: the Hellfire Club. I believe that’s Oliver Platt as the Man in Black, Kevin Bacon (!) as Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones as Emma Frost. Who is getting sparkly.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Emma gets a lot sparklier…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

sparklier…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

even sparklier..

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And turns all diamondy. Much much cooler looking than in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Which really set the bar somewhere in the Earth’s substrate as far as mutant cameos went.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Our gang is in some facility, with an enormous fan covering one wall. A hangar? A lab? Something military? And Hank McCoy/Beast uses his mutant agility to leap really high.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Hank could win a breakdancing competition. Who is that on the far left? Is it the Man in Black?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Hank flips all the way over…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Notice he’s lost his shoes, which are still sitting on the ground. And now we get a better look at that facility, which has a huge control room with a fancy elevator. And it’s very empty.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Another look at young Mystique, giving someone a romantic look…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And it’s Hank McCoy! He’s one lucky Beast! Could this be the Spock/Uhura romance of summer 2011?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Lucas Till as Alex Summers, looking pissed off and ready to unleash…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

… a beam of stored up cosmic energy. Looks like they’re in the grounds of the X-mansion.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Erik is in a diner someplace. The menu is in Spanish but the prices are in dollars. He’s sitting at a table talking to an old guy, when someone comes at him with a knife. Erik uses his magnetism powers to snatch the knife out of the guy’s hand.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Erik catches the knife…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And brings it down onto the table. Not looking happy.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Thwack!

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Charles puts on Cerebro, for probably the first time ever. How long before Erik puts on his own helmet for the first time?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Charles is not quite ready for the intensity of Cerebro. Note that Erik is watching.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Here’s a glimpse of Charles’ Cerebro-vision.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Back with the Hellfire Club, who have added the demonic Azazel (Jason Flemyng from Primeval) to their ranks. Azazel offers a hand to a bald guy who’s on the ground.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

But then Azazel and the bald guy start to glow…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

…and they vanish in a puff of mutant demonic smoke.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

A trio of guards are aiming their rifles at somebody, but check out the puff of demonic smoke…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

…which gets redder…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

…and turns into Azazel! And possibly the bald guy.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And Azazel wastes no time in kicking their asses.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Four guards are already down and Azazel is attacking the others. It’s some kind of compound, and there’s a nice lobby.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And here at last is Erik picking up his trademark helmet, probably for the first time.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

He’s in the same room where Emma Frost was being held prisoner.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Charles tries to tell Erik that violence will never lead to peace, blah blah blah…

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And Erik has the quite nice line of dialogue, “Peace was never an option.”

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Ooh, how is this sub being lifted out of the water?

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

Oh, that’s how. Note that Erik is wearing his yellow outfit again. And straining to lift something so huge.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

But you can’t keep Erik from something he’s decided to go after.

Mutant Roll Call: 75 Gorgeous Screencaps From The X-Men: First Class Trailer

And here’s the logo! All in all, a huge improvement on the last two X-films, at least so far. Fingers crossed!
