More Hugh-ge News

Let's take a break from The Road to Oscar to highlight the latest endeavor from its recently-anointed Australian host. The trailer for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has hit the web, just in time to remind viewers of Hugh Jackman's toughness before he prances around on Oscar's stage.

Apart from everyone's favorite adamantium-clawed protagonist, there are at least four other identifiable mutants here: Deadpool, Blob, Sabretooth (Liev Schrieber, clawed but mane-less), and Gambit, whose reveal is not very, um...subtle. Honestly, did anyone who cares about this movie need to hear "I know who you are, Gambit" in the first trailer? The playing cards would have surely sufficed or, at the very least, a sly utterance of the name "Remy." (Wink, wink, fanboys.)
