For couple weeks now, SuperPunch held a contest that asks their readers to create a new “stylish and sexy” ‘X-Men: First Class’ poster that the movie deserves. Well, one of the best of the group was indeed not a poster or illustration, but a fantastic fan-made title opening sequence by Joe D! Joe D!’s awesome retro-style opening features beautiful illustrations and visuals similar to mix between a ‘James Bong’ opening and the art of Saul Bass.

Inspired by classic Sixties movie titles and prompted by John Struan of Super Punch fame, I’ve built a 1960s style title sequence for the upcoming X-Men: First Class film.
Set during the midst of the Cuba Missile Crisis, X-Men: First Class tells the story of the first team coming together, before they would become the heroes and villains we know from the original X-Men Trilogy.
This sequence was designed to give a very brief primer on the time period, the setting, as well as show the relationships of the characters in this film, as they are very different from the previous movies and audiences shouldn’t be confused as to why Professor X and Magneto, enemies in the original trilogy, are the best of friend in this prequel.
Super Punch held a contest redesigning the posters for the film, which played it safe by sticking very close to the correlation to the original trilogy, and winding up rather mundane compared to the slick trailer rife with espionage, red fear, and 60s hair. Several people were quick to make posters in the Mod, Saul Bass, and James Bond style that I had in mind, so it was decided that I’d make a title sequence instead.
And yes, that music is a very melancholic rendition of the 90s cartoon theme song.

I have to admit that pretty much every single fan-made poster/illustration for Matthew Vaughn’s ‘X-Men: First Class’ is far more superior than what 20th Century Fox released which was a pile of crap. This is a perfect example of the fans knowing more about the subject matter and what looks good than the Hollywood honchos that are racking in seven figure salaries. Shame on you Hollywood.
