It’s been a good week for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. In fact, everything appears to be running smooth on Fox’s mutant reboot (are we still calling it that?) ever since a leaked photo and a pair of awful posters set the internet ablaze with anger. Everything from the excellent trailer to movie sites like this one running fan-created poster contests. Never has a movie been marketed so poorly, yet ultimately received so much positive attention. Perhaps that was the plan all along. If so, it’s working.

Tonight we’ve got only the good stuff. A fan made title sequence that will drop your jaw and a trio of stylish covers for Total Film magazine, decked out with the likes of Erik Lensherr, Charles Xavier and Emma Frost. It’s all very Mad Men, so I think you’ll dig it.

Up first is the title sequence, created by Joe D! of SecretUnderGroundHeadquarters.com. This Saul Bass infused, radiating opening delivers a punch complete with a melancholic rendition of the 90s cartoon theme song. Timely and fresh, stylish and sexy, this is one of the more impressive fan made anythings we’ve seen in a while:

And then there was Total Film’s special edition covers. I like.

X-Men: First Class is due in theaters June 3, 2011.
