X-Men: First Class: New Holocaust Footage

Fox Studios released four new clips from the new X-Men movie last night. If you’ve followed our coverage of Magneto’s history as a Holocaust survivor — or if you’ve seen the opening sequence of the first X-Men movie in 2000 — you’re aware of his loaded and complicated history. But what follows might be the creepiest rendition ever of the two words that, for many of us, defined growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust.

Is that wildly improper? Chillingly appropriate? Too intense and emotionally-loaded to simplify to one thing? I’m voting for a mixture of all three.

thanks to io9 for the tipoff!
