45. “X-Men: First Class” (2011)  The first X-Men team film since “The Last Stand” is set in the early 1960s and finds Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones, left), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), government agent Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Havok (Lucas Till) coming together to take on the Hellfire Club. Director Matthew Vaughn’s film proved a hit with moviegoers, though not with  Times critic Betsy Sharkey, and showed how Professor X and Magneto went from friends to foes (and how Charles became paralyzed). (20th Century Fox)

Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender, left foreground) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy, right foreground) lead Cassidy (Caleb Landry Jones, left), Raven Darkholme (Jennifer Lawrence), Dr. Moira McTaggert (Rose Byrne), Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult), and Alex Summers (Lucas Till) in a battle to prevent nuclear war in the movie X-Men: First Class.
