London, May 9 (ANI): Aussie actor Hugh Jackman has promised to cheer up victims affected by swine flu in Mexico by having a special screening of his new movie ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ there.

The movie was set to debut in Mexico City on April 29, but it had to be cancelled after the outbreak of the flu, which has claimed dozens of lives in the capital.

Jackman, 40, has chosen May 26 for the screening of the film.

“My thoughts and prayers have been with all of those that have suffered directly or indirectly from the swine flu in Mexico,” the Daily Express quoted him as writing on his Twitter.com page.

“I will bring Wolverine to Mexico City on May 26 to provide a moment of fun, escapism, and a treat for some of the loyal fans of the comic,” he added. (ANI)
