They don't right now. But their return should attract more people than the return of the FC cast. Like with trailers and TV spots especially if they showcase them very well.
One of the complaints about First Class from the general audience was it didn't really feature a lot of well-known characters. I heard this from two different people who I wasn't really close with. In FC, we got Sebastian Shaw, Azazel, Riptide, Angel Salvadore, Havok, Banshee. If those mutants were introduced in a X-Men movie like with Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Iceman, it wouldn't be an issue.
