Geoff Boucher once again has an information-packed article on his blog, The Hero Complex (Los Angeles Times). This time he highlights some of the challenges that First Class director, Matthew Vaughn, and the cast are facing in completing the movie. The movie is slated for a June 3 release, but according to the article, as of January 18, filming was still going on.
Vaughn spoke about the pressure he's under to bring the film in on time -
I’ve never worked under such time pressure. The good thing about the independent world is I never even knew if I was going to get distribution. I’m used to finishing a film and then crossing your fingers that someone is going to like it. This is totally doing it the other way around. We’ve definitely got a release date and we’ve got to make it. - The Hero ComplexJames McAvoy, who plays Charles Xavier, explained how First Class adds to the X-Men film universe -
What do you think of the news coming out of the X-Men: First Class set? Do you think the movie is going to be as successful as the first X-Men trilogy?
