While /Film interviewed a sick (tonsillitis) Matthew Vaughn, director of upcoming X-Men: First Class, 20th Century Fox released (according to Comingsoon.net) seven (first four, then three) clips today from the movie. Also, they have released a new iPad App called “X-Men EXTRA.” As far as I know, this is the first time the clips have dedicated longer screen time to Sebastian Shaw, played by always talented Kevin Bacon. I was beginning to wonder when we would get to see more of his character. Details for the App after the clips!
Comingsoon.net posted what looks like a press release by Fox featuring details for the app:
“Twentieth Century Fox announced today a new App, “X-Men EXTRA,” that puts users in the middle of the most defining – and top secret – events of the past century. The digital and updatable magazine app debuted today on the iPad and will be coming soon to iPhone, the Blackberry Playbook and Android tablets.
The App posits, through hidden video clips and newly discovered photos, that the X-Men played a secret role in shaping many historic events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mutants were working within covert government agencies, infiltrating the highest echelons of power – and secretly changing the course of history.
