The 20th Century Fox marketing machine keeps churning hard for "X-Men: First Class" with multiple trailers and television spots to the point where we're a bit surprised some superfan hasn't cut together a mega trailer yet with all the footage. But we digress. A new full scene from the film has now landed, and any fears of a leaden tone as evinced by the recent character trailers have been quickly allayed.

It seems the team behind Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" has been pushing their film harder than anyone else on the Croisette in terms of advance footage, but it's clear to see why. The premise isn't an easily sellable one, telling the story of a mother (Tilda Swinton) of a teenage boy who went on a high-school killing spree as she tries to deal with her grief—and feelings of responsibility for her child’s actions. Heavy stuff indeed. But as the clips from earlier in the week and the new one today reveal -- this film is looking like both an acting decathlon and wiry drama of the highest order.

The Fox Searchlight marketing department seems to be embracing the web with more enthusiasm this year than they have in the past. Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" has an official Fox Searchlight page, a Tumblr and its own detailed standalone site. Clearly, it's helped push the arthouse film in the minds of more mainstream moviegoers and it looks like the studio is taking the same tack with Alexander Payne's upcoming "The Descendants."
