Last week saw the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. We at THN commemorated the event with a retrospective look back at Oliver Stone’s classic film JFK. Fox however went down a different route, investigating the ‘bent bullet’ conspiracy, placing X-MEN mutant Magneto, played by Michael Fassbender, into the spotlight. How pivotal will this plot point play in Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?
This clip sees the marketing machine kick-it-up a notch. The video is a stroke of viral genius, edited together like a documentary, blending real world images with X-verse footage seamlessly. Watch the viral video here alongside the secret documents proving Lee Harvey Oswald was no lone shooter via the intriguing new website:
“Half a century ago, Magneto was implicated in the mutant plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. The events of that fateful day in November have been a point of contention between humans and the mutants ever since. After years of incarceration, do you think Magneto is guilty or innocent? Tell us why in the comments.” - The Bent Bullet
