'X-Men First Class' is a period film, adapted from the popular X-Men series of Marvel comic books. The movie is set in 1962 and looks at the youth of some of the franchise's most popular and beloved mutant characters. The film was co-written and directed by Matthew Vaughn, who previously made the violent graphic novel adaptation "Kick-Ass." It stars James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr (later Magneto), January Jones as Emma Frost, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw and Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme (later Mystique).

Not surprisingly, 'X-Men First Class' was a huge hit at the box office. The movie took in a staggering $55 million in its first weekend of release and went on to gross well over $146 million at the U.S. box office (as of early-September 2011).

    Charles Xavier: "A new species is being born. Help me guide it, shape it, lead it."

    We can hear the origins of the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters here in Charles' plans to shape the next generation. His plea to Erik Lehnsherr, of course, would come back years later to haunt him, as Magneto will go on to lead the villainous Brotherhood of Mutants in an ongoing war against humanity.
