Two Minutes Musketeers?
Submitted for your consideration:
Exhibit B: A clip of the Two Minutes Hate from the 1984 film Nineteen Eighty-Four (watch particularly at 1:47, 2:24, 3:45, and 4:04):
Note the distinctive two-wrists-crossed-overhead gesture. Coincidence? Yes—that's what coincidence is. The Xavier fans are forming an X, while I suspect that the gesture in the film is meant to refer to one of Orwell's famous fictional slogans of Ingsoc, "Freedom is Slavery".
But it's still kind of funny. [hat tip: Michael Sheehan]

There are no coincidences.
But it's different - the 1984ers don't have their index fingers sticking out.
There's also these scenes from Pink Floyd The Wall the movie (1982) during the songs In the Flesh and Run Like Hell.
To me, it looks more like they're about to combine their powers into a force beam intended to knock the Zarqrx mothercraft out of orbit.
