Comic book movies with name brands BOMB all the time. So, sorry, but this has a strong chance of bombing with no recognizable characters that the general audience would go see a movie for in it.
No X-Men film has bombed to date. Even the first film made $300 million. Hell Wolverine made nearly $400 million and it was all over the internet a month before its release. The X-Men brand it bigger than 2 characters. It's even bigger than just Wolverine (X2 and X3 made more than his solo outing).

The chances of X-Men: First Class making back its budget is high, based on the success of the X-Men franchise. Movies are released all the time and people don't have a clue who the characters are beforehand.
