The X-Men are back, and this time, younger and sexier than before. The fifth installment of the X-Men movie franchise is a prequel set in the 1960s and will focus on Professor Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr. Before they became Professor X and Magneto, the two were the best of friends, two mutants exploring their powers while learning what it is like living in a world where mutants are feared and discriminated against.

Familiar faces such as Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine will not be seen much in the movie. Instead, the reboot will feature new mutants such as Emma Frost (The White Queen) of the Hellfire Club, and Alex Summers (Havok), Cyclops’ brother. Other mutants from previous installments will also make an appearance, namely scientist Dr. Hank McCoy (Beast), and shapeshifter Raven Darkholme (Mystique).

Charles Xavier is the founder of the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, a school where young mutants learn how to control their powers for the betterment of society. The students in the school form the superhero team known as the X-Men, who strive to protect a world that hates them. The team’s archenemy is Magneto, a master of magnetism who believes that the world should be ruled by mutants, not by what he considers to be a lesser species in humans.

The movie will also feature the Hellfire Club, a secret society of mutants with plans of world domination. It is headed by Sebastian Shaw (The Black King), played by Kevin Bacon. The Club will be the main antagonists in the movie. Director Matthew Vaughn envisions the film as the first of a trilogy. The tone of the movie is darker, and more mature than previous X-Men films. Bryan Singer, director of the first two X-Men movies, returns as a producer. James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and January Jones star.
