Inception Causes X-Men: First Class Rewrites?

Apparently Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn went and saw Inception, which is currently the number one movie in America for two weekends in a row, and he came out loving it.

He also came out having seen a couple of things that he was going to use in First Class, and in an effort to stay original, he scrapped twelve pages of the script for rewrites.

Here’s what the LA Times has to say about it.

The jettisoned sequence was a sort of dream-space combat, according to Vaughn; that reminded me of “psi war” scenes like the one here on the right from “The Uncanny X-Men” No. 117 way back in 1979, but the filmmaker said for the film the fight involving Professor X (James McAvoy) and some other mutants was to going to be presented with spinning rooms and other physics-bending imagery — visions that he felt drifted too close to signature moments in “Inception,” which has now piled up $363 million in worldwide box office and garnered some of the strongest reviews of any 2010 release.

X-Men: First Class is set for release in June 3, 2011.
