Class begins on Blu-ray in early September, and if you're a good student you could score a free T-shirt!
Director Matthew Vaughn ('Layer Cake,' 'Kick Ass') tells the true origins of the multi-billion dollar film franchise, guiding exceptional performances by Golden Globe®-nominee James McAvoy ('Atonement'), Michael Fassbender ('Inglourious Basterds'), and Golden Globe®-winner Kevin Bacon (“Taking Chance,” 'Mystic River'). A “rare movie event that balances an intelligent story with solid performances, first-rate action and top-of-the-line special effects” (Ben Lyons, E!), 'X-men: First Class' has drawn an impressive $150 million at the domestic box office and nearly $350 million worldwide.
Before Charles Xavier (McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time, working together to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. The film features a star-studded supporting cast, including Academy Award®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), January Jones (“Mad Men”), Rose Byrne ('28 Weeks Later'), Zoë Kravitz (“Californication”), Nicholas Hoult ('A Single Man'), Lucas Till ('Walk the Line'), and Emmy Award®-nominee Oliver Platt (“The West Wing”).
The first 1000 fans who pre-order the release during San Diego Comic Con (running July 21-24) will also receive a free T-shirt for the side they support: Professor X or Magneto. Which side will you choose?
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include 10 X-Men digital comics (including one all-new backstory), a Cerebro Mutant Tracker Interactive Video Database, Children of the Atom eight part behind the scenes featurette, X Marks the Spot scene specific interactive feature, extended and deleted scenes, isolated score, trailer, a digital copy and more!
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
