The British dream team behind Kick Ass – director Matthew Vaughn and writer Jane Goldman - are joined by a stellar cast including James McAvoy (Wanted), Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man) and Jason Flemying (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.
Charles Xavier, (McAvoy) a gifted Oxford University graduate with the power to read minds has been under CIA surveillance for some time when agent Moira MacTaggart (Rose Byrne: Bridesmaids,) tracks him down to help her recruit a team of mutants. Their mission is to take on Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon: Mystic River, Apollo 13), a megalomaniac supremacist plotting nuclear Armageddon between America and Russia.
Meanwhile Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) is on a mission to avenge the brutal murder of his mother whilst they were in a German concentration camp during World War II. Having mastered control of his incredible magnetic powers, he unleashes hell on all who stand in his way in his search for his arch nemesis, the same Sebastian Shaw.
Xavier and Erik’s paths soon cross and the two grow to be close friends, combining their powers to form a brotherhood of mutants …until the day comes where both are forced to make a decision that will change their lives forever.
