Mutant romance is in the air in this X-Men: 1st Class promo clip

What happens when you have The Hunger Game's sexy killing machine Jennifer Lawrence and About a Boy's geeky Nicholas Hoult together in a romantic scene from X-Men: First Class? What could be have been awkward turns out to be an awwww-inducing moment.

Right, a discussion about wanting to be normal, serum and blood samples shouldn't be all cute and sweet and romantic and sort of sexy, but that's the end result of this 50-second clip that expands on a very short snippet we've now seen countless times in countless different X-Men: First Class trailers.

Taking over for the sexy Rebecca Romijn (who played the blue-skinned shape-shifter mutant in the first three X-Men films) as Raven Darkholme/Mystique, Lawrence adds a bit of an Emma Peel vibe to the role, while Hoult, who's taking over the role of Hank McCoy/Beast from a blue-fur-covered Kelsey Grammer in X-Men: The Last Stand, looks much more like a shy, geeky, Peter Parker-ish high-school student.

Check it out.
