• Why yes, I am awesome at photoshop.

There's moody trailer out for X-Men: First Class, which in some ways looks even goofier than I figured it would, and in other ways looks surprisingly cool. I gotta admit, the Cuban Missile Crisis stuff is a clever angle, and I love the idea of a period superhero movieā€”I'm just not convinced the tired X-franchise has enough energy to do the concept justice. (Plus, now I'm feeling weirdly proprietary about my name.) Anyway, here!
