Jackman to take ‘Wolverine’ to MexicoMay 9th, 2009 - 3:26 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 9 (IANS) Australian actor Hugh Jackman is planning a special screening of his new movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in swine-flu affected Mexico.
The blockbuster was due to debut in Mexico April 29 but officials axed the premiere due to the spread of virus, which claimed dozens of lives, reported femalefirst.co.uk.
Jackman vowed to unveil the film for Mexican fans as soon as possible and now he is set to deliver on his promise to give the country a much-needed boost with a special screening later this month.
“My thoughts and prayers have been with all of those that have suffered directly or indirectly from the swine flu in Mexico. I will bring ‘Wolverine’ to Mexico on May 26 to provide a moment of fun, escapism, and a treat for some of the loyal fans of the comic,” he said.
