A First Look at X-Men: First Class

Kevin Bacon, James McAvoy, and other stars rock ‘60s fashion to match their cool action moves in the newest installment of the X-Men movies.
Trace the origins of Marvel’s X-Men universe with the latest action blockbuster, X-Men: First Class. Set in the ‘60s when the world is just about to enter a nuclear armageddon, the members of the first class discover their powers and form life-changing alliances that will paint the future of heroes and villains in the X-Men Universe.

Directed by Michael Vaughn, the movie focuses on young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) years before they became Professor X and Magneto. Before they were mortal enemies, the two were best friends working together to defeat Sebastian Shaw’s Hellfits (Kevin Bacon), a secret society who wants to take over the world.

Costume designer Sammy Sheldon uses her creativity to bring  the fashion style of the ‘60s to life—with a twist—in the X-Men’s retro duds using items like thigh-high boots, short skirts, and lots of leather as key points in her designs. Scroll through the gallery below to learn more about the movie and see what the stars had to say about their outfits!

 X-Men: First Class opens on June 2 in Philippine theaters.
