We're sure an English language version of this is probably just around the corner, but for now, pretend you're in Moscow and feast your eyes on a new Russian trailer for "X-Men: First Class." And take it for whatever it's worth, but even in a foreign language, this still looks pretty damn great.

We're sure an English language version of this is probably just around the corner, but for now, pretend you're in Moscow and feast your eyes on a new Russian trailer for "X-Men: First Class." And take it for whatever it's worth, but even in a foreign language, this still looks pretty damn great.

While we don't usually round up trailers we can't understand, we'll make an exception this time around due to the plethora of new footage to be found. Featured mostly in the second half of the trailer, among the new scenes are: Beast (Nicholas Hoult) flying the X-Jet, Banshee (Caleb Landry) producing his “sonic scream” and Havok (Lucas Till) in the Danger Room with Xavier surrounded by fire. Of course, we don't have to remind you that the film will go all the way to back to the early days of the mutant team, chronicling the dissolving relationship between Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender).

"X-Men: First Class" hits on June 3rd. Check out the trailer below as well as a translation of the title cards and dialogue in the film thanks to Mark Zhuravsky. [via Filmonic]

Title: "Before he was Professor X, he was called Charles"
Title: "Before he was Magneto, he was called Erik"
Xavier: "Hi, my name is Charles Xavier"
Magneto (raising drink): "Here's to you"
Title: "They were friends" - "One hoped for peace" - "The other was defined by pain" - "Their unique abilities made them different"
Xavier to Magneto: "There is more than you know inside you, more than pain and fury"
Title: "But fate will make them into comrades"
Xavier to Magneto: "You have kindness in you, you can control this, you have strength inside that no one else does. Not even me"
Magneto: "Tomorrow people will know that mutants exist"
Title: "Find out about the beginning of the truth"
Xavier to Magneto: "We can become better"
Magneto to Xavier: "We already are"
Title: "Which will decide our world"
Xavier to Magneto: "Listen to me carefully my friend, killing will not bring you peace"
Magneto to Xavier: "Peace is not my goal"
