Bringing its star-packed revival of the mutant superhero franchise back to the big screen, "X-Men: First Class" arrived in theaters today (June 3).

The Matthew Vaughn-directed prequel, which has created much box office buzz, stars a well put together cast including James McAvoy, January Jones and Jennifer Lawrence.

A synopsis of the film via IMDB reads: "Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), 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."
