Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I'm sorry, but honestly at this point I think I'd rather just see them stick to the FC cast and storyline.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Weekend estimates are in and First Class placed #15 and pulled in another $625K for a domestic total of $143.4m on 470 screens. Worldwide it's at $344m as of now.

What makes this week interesting is that it's poised to most likely leap frog Green Lantern(placing #14 on 973 screens) in the coming days if not over next weekend. Doing so on nearly half as many screens even.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Playing advocate for a moment, as there's been behind the scenes work on both First Class and Wolverine for some time. But if they didn't want to have both timelines going at the same time- or any two timelines going on at the same time- why would they be doing Wolverine now after First Class?

I said before I simply think its too late for X4. They should have done right by that one and done it to immediately correct The Last Stand. Ironically, today it probably would have been automatically redoing itself. It's like they are competing with themselves in addition to all the other comic book movies. If Wolverine proves a critical and financial success this time, which do you do next? They don't need to divide and conquer like they did after 3.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I like the idea of doing an X4 based on the younger generation.

Page and Paquin are much bigger names now. Recast Colossus and Jubilee (Say Hammer and Hudgens receptively), and you have a nice cast to move the franchise forward.

Plus, Wolverine seems to be Jackman's Jack Sparrow.

Staggered releases would prevent any appearance of in-house competition.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Again "X4" discussions are ongoing at Fox and have been since "X3" concluded. We simply do not know when it will be announced or who will be directing (as stated countless times in this thread...due to the fact it keeps being brought up...my money is on Bryan Singer returning to direct the film and it will focus on the younger mutants being led by a recast Storm and Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Logan). We probably won't have to worry about this though until 2014 or even 15. It seems Fox is focused on "The Wolverine" and potential First Class sequels right now. Make no mistake though "X4" is in play still.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

But why? Why go with X4 if everyone will be old and expensive and the last two films in that timeframe bombed? Why would you put aside something going good for First Class and potentially a good Wolverine redo to go back there?

If it couldn't have been done then and they felt the need ti single-ize, why would everyone be on board for it now? Just seems like they would be going backwards with an X4 when they have a window to go forward. Much as I love First Class, in hindsight, the Magneto Origins movie might not have been so bad either.

3 kind of ruined how I would feel about a fourth. As your sig says, would they ignore The Last Stand?

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Why go forward with "X4"? Answer: Because there is still interest and we all know Bryan Singer is very interested in directing another X-Men film. He almost directed "First Class" and if he wasn't already iron clad locked for "Jack the Giant Killer" he would have.

As mentioned before some of the plot and character stuff from "X-Men Origins: Magneto" was incorporated into the script and story for "X-Men: First Class". In fact Singer based part of his treatment from that script which is why it was cancelled...because First Class pretty much made it irrelevant.

I'm not saying "X4" is certain, all I am saying is that it's a very distinct possibility and there are tons of story lines and characters they do. It's even very possible if Singer comes aboard he will ahem ignore "The Last Stand"

A) Both movies share the existing timeline

B) The Wolverine will make money.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

More news on video releases! September 9 supposedly. And of course, NOW they roll out exclusive t-shirts and 'Team Erik' versus 'Team Charles' artwork. Little late!

http://www.thehdroom.com/news/X-Men-...Cover-Art/9245

That does look like a cool cover though! The t-shirts are for pre-order at comic con only though? That stinks. I will pre order if it comes with something cool.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I know. Some of the articles say it is all limited. So I really hope these covers and the t-shirts are not only with Comic Con. Why are they promoting so heavy there after the fact? Hopefully you'll be able to choose a cover and get something at places like Movie Stop.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

It is strange that they're unloading gear at SDCC. They had zero promotion or presence last year when they should have been. It really is a sign of how cautious Fox was with this movie in the first place.
