I dont Know what’s been happening with the marketing/design team behind X-MEN:FIRST CLASS but 20th Century Fox could be onto a loosing movie here before it even hits the cinemas. Fox have just sent us a new poster but sadly its another bad one, photoshop disaster which looks someone has cut off all there heads and glued them onto the wrong bodies! First of all why is James McAvoy, Charles Xavier looking down at us with an evil stare, or is his head about to fall off? Michael Fassbender Magneto head looking so obivious it shouldn’t be on that body? come on guys get the finger out!
Whats happened to the days when posters where effective imaginative peices of artwork that looked striking, colourful interesting? probably because of the the computer art has moved into them and old school techniques have disappeared. I went to university 10 years ago and myself and 1 other still used old techniques when presenting new ideas, draw them in a sketchbook show teacher, but sadly the others didnt use pencils, sketchbooks actually half of them never used them at all, all straight into the computer, this seems to be the problem!
Please fox for the sake of your movie get something sorted or the interest in your movie may become more a laughing stock, here’s hoping the actual movie is better than the poor marketing!
X-MEN:FIRST CLASS is directed by Mattheww Vaughn with Bryan Singer producing and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Jason Flemyng,Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz,Ed Gathegi, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon.The movie will be released on June 1st.
X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
