    'X-Men: First Class': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    By this point, it's more than likely that you've checked out "X-Men: First Class" (although its underwhelming box office suggests that there were fewer of you than we thought). And, if the film's strong exit scores are anything to go by, you, like most of The Playlist team, found it as entertaining ...

    Weekend Box Office: $56 Million 'First Class' Opening Isn't X-actly What Fox Had In Mind

    As the only major opening of the week, it was not a surprise to see “X-Men: First Class” reign with a $56 million total. For those keeping track at home (why are you doing this?), this is the lowest-scoring opening weekend for any of the four films in the “X-Men” series save for the eleven-year old ...

    Matthew Vaughn Was A Yeller, Already Thinking Sequels & 18 Things Learned About 'X-Men First Class'

    "X" marks the spot! (Sorry, had to go there.) After a long wait, at least quality-wise, the mutants are back and "X-Men: First Class" has arrived and opens in theaters nationwide today. This super hero film also lands with a rather huge sigh of relief to three distinctly different groups of people. 1) The fans: after having to endure two mediocre to abysmal installments of the 'X-Men' series ("X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men: First Class," is a nice return to form and almost on-par with Bryan Singer's much beloved &qu...

    Review: Despite All Its Little Foibles, 'X-Men: First Class' Is Near First Rate

    While a titled cross has been key in "X-Men: First Class" iconography (as well as a huge part of its incessant and not-entirely-original marketing campaign), suggesting that "X" indeed does mark the spot, the symbol most associated with the highly anticipated sequel/prequel/reboot/whatever-the-fuck-it-is is a question mark. Things have been leaning to and fro in the buildup to the movie's release, with pros and cons both flying wildly. Its unequaled cast (including a mix of veterans and up-and-comers including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and more) was balanced out by reports ...

    Matthew Vaughn Says 'Kick-Ass 2' Would Be "Crass" & Had No Idea Who His Crew Was On 'First Class'

    Disses Brett Ratner's 'X3' Revealing His Version Would've Been 40 Minutes LongerAs long as someone will listen to him, "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar will talk and more than likely, it will be bullshit. He spent much of last year telling anyone and everyone that "Kick-Ass 2" was a sure thing. No one really believed him anyway, but earlier this year screenwriter Jane Goldman tweeted, “Saw a few erroneous reports today that I’m currently writing Kick Ass 2 script – sorry if anyone’s disappointed, but not true.” She went on to add, “Currently writing for 2 other projects, then on to lovely Matthew [Vaughn]’s next thing (right now, looks unlikely...
