About X-MEN ORIGINS WOLVERINE Hometown Challenge:
In an announcement made on YouTube, Hugh Jackman, who plays the famed antihero in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, is taking Hollywood and the film’s premiere to the people who made the X-Men film series one of the industry’s biggest – inviting the legions of X-Men fans across the United States to be the first to “witness the origins” in their hometown with the cast on Monday, April 27.

To put in a bid to host the premiere, fans need only remember that “X marks the spot”: at the website www.x-menorigins.com/premiere, they should mark their town with a digital “X.” The location with the most votes/X’s will win the red carpet, star-studded movie premiere.

The winning town will be announced on April 20th.

    Just saw the film Tokyo! done by Michel Gondry, Bong Joon-Ho and Leos Carax. It’s opening at the Angelika Theatre in Dallas on 4/17/09. Definitely worth checking out.
