X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth? James McAvoy gives the performance of his career and he is joined by a fantastic cast, also including Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent, Shirley Henderson and Eddie Marsan. Based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, Filth is written by Jon S. Baird who also produces and directs.
