My initial impressions? It looks much better than I thought it would, and I really dig the music. The trailer itself starts out a bit amateurish, almost like a fan-made trailer with the awkwardly worded Magneto and Professor X captions; but then it rallies and picks up some exciting momentum. Fassbender and McAvoy look like they are going to knock it out the park, but the supporting mutants look pretty bland. The CGI is a mixed bag; the Blackbird/submarine sequence looked fantastic, but the Mystique and White Queen transformations looked like effects from the first X-Men film ten years ago. What do you think? After the jump: check out the poster and a photo of Magneto!


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
