Entertainment Link-Off: The Story Begins…

In the Man-Lab Showdown yesterday, we totally left out another star of the film, Rose Byrne.

Given this weekend marks the release of the mutant franchise prequel, it would be appropriate to kick off the weekend entries with the ladies from the film. Speaking of which, X-Men: The First Class is a refreshing, engaging entry to the X-Men films, so check it out in theatres when you get the chance.

Rose Byrne struts her comedic chops once again in the Judd Apatow produced comedy, so it might be worth checking out Bridesmaids at the theatres after all.
