Victoria train station offered commuters a unique First Class experience for one day only today, courtesy of this year’s hit film X-Men: First Class.
To mark the release of the box office hit on Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD, legendary British actor Jason Flemyng (Azazel) and characters from the film unveiled an interactive First Class pop-up lounge in the main concourse of the station, giving commuters the full X-Men experience.
Intricately recreating the 1960s lounge in the mutants’ X-Mansion hideout, the 25m² pop-up area brought the film to life, with visitors able to sit back on the chesterfield sofas whilst watching the Blu-ray on a 40 inch period style HD TV, relax by the fire place, shop for new titles in the library with hidden QR codes, play chess on an authentic chess set as featured in the films and pose for photos with mutants Mystique and Azazel, made up by a leading Hollywood make-up artist.
During the day, visitors were also able to pick up some mutant skills of their own. Britain’s top mind controller Marc Paul, who has been dubbed the real-life Professor X, gave mind-control workshops throughout the day.
