1st look at the blinding Hellfire Club lair from X-Men: First Class

There's roughly two months left to wait before the eagerly anticipated X-Men: First Class is released on the big screen, and the ultra-cool lair of the Hellfire Club has just been revealed. And it looks pretty darn cool.

This first picture of the lair also features Kevin Bacon as the über-villain Sebastian Shaw, the supreme leader of the nefarious Hellfire Club, along with his right-hand woman, a very sexy and cool Emma Frost, played by January Jones (Mad Men).

By the looks of this set (which kind of reminds us of the sorcerer's lair in Conan the Destroyer—but we digress), director Matthew Vaughn seems to be pulling out all the stops to set this movie (which is taking place in the 1960s) apart from the previous three X-Men films.

With a cast that boasts Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert and Nicholas Hoult as Beast—as well as a truly kick-ass trailerX-Men: First Class (which opens June 3, 2011) promises to be one of the summer's top movies.

What do you think of the lair?
