'X-Men: First Class': New poster features moody shot of the full cast

Up until now, the poster art for X-Men: First Class – this summer’s Wolverine-free Cold War era preboot – have kept things pretty mysterious, with shadowy shots of stars James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as younger incarnations of Professor X and Magneto. A just-released one-sheet emphasizes the rest of the cast, including Katniss-to-be Jennifer Lawrence as a young Mystique, January Jones as a partially-dressed White Queen, and Kevin Bacon as a smirky Sebastian Shaw. It’s a strange-looking poster – everyone is kind of looking vaguely in a different direction, as if posing for a Christian rock album cover – but it’s interesting to see them play up the rest of the mutant ensemble. Check out the full poster after the jump, and tell us what you think about this new peek at the newest chapter in the X saga. (And remember: There’s a lot more where this came from.)
