Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber: ‘X’ Marks the Trailer

On the heels of a sweeping, shirtless turn opposite Nicole Kidman in Baz Luhrman’s Australia, Hugh Jackman returns with an agitated, shirtless thrill ride in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Jackman, 40, gets to explore the former life of his furry action hero Wolverine—known as Logan before yielding to a Government experience that would turn him into a steel-clawed beast.

Plot turns includes Daddy issues, obligatory war scenes and lost love.

Check out the clip:

While this is Jackman’s show, other faces you might have seen include Ryan Reynolds (Mr. Scarlett Johansson) and vamped-out Liev Schreiber (Mr. New Dad).

The flick is slated for a May 1, 2009 release.
