What a difference an Oscar nomination makes. Not to mention nabbing the lead in The Hunger Games.

When the first trailer for X-Men: First Class popped up back in February, Jennifer Lawrence wasn't exactly a recognizable face, so it's somewhat understandable that the folks who put it together opted not to showcase her turn as Mystique.

Well, fast forward to today and the Winter's Bone star who will be Katniss Everdeen is clearly being viewed as one of the flick's most valuable players. Sure, James McAvoy (Charles/Professor X) and Michael Fassbender (Erik/Magneto) remain front and center here, but Lawrence still gets plenty of screen time. Not that we're complaining.

Oh yeah, the movie looks pretty cool, too.
