You’d be forgiven if you watched the first bit of a new overseas trailer for “X-Men: First Class” and thought, “Nothing we haven’t seen before.” But it does, in fact, contain some things we haven’t seen before.
The most interesting bit comes around the one-minute mark, when we see someone stomp a foot onto the floor and cause a massive explosion. There’s also a slightly longer shot of a fight scene involving Azazel (Jason Flemyng) and a shot of Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones) flying over water that hasn’t been in previous trailers (though it is in TV ads that are running now).
Those shots are surrounded, however, by shots from previous trailers, and the overseas teaser keeps the “Before he was Professor X …” opening and Magneto’s (Michael Fassbender) closing line of “Peace was never an option.” That said, though, the new trailer does nothing to dampen our curiosity about the movie.
