Details on the X-Men: First Class Oxford Shoot

The Oxford Student has published more info on last week’s shoot for X-Men: First Class. The story details presented in the article are things you may or may not want to know about in advance. Here’s an excerpt:

After setting up for three weeks, filming for two days, and spending around £200,000, Hood said that this would produce only a few minutes of useable footage.

They may have to return to Oxford for re-shooting due to the rain affecting two shots last week.

The plot of X Men: First Class takes place before the three previous films.  The scenes shot in Oxford will include Xavier getting doctorates in theology and philosophy from Oxford University in the 1960s, his manipulation of student uprisings using his psychic powers, and the way he meets best friend turned arch rival Magneto.
