In X-Men:First Class (12A), before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names of Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time.

Before they were arch-enemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other mutants, to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.

In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

X-Men will be showing this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7.30pm each night.

Also keep an eye out for upcoming films: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (12A) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
