Hugh was in London promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past on March 31st but he took time to support his friend and Les Miserables co-star, Russell Crowe, at the premier of biblical epic, Noah.
Hugh and James McAvoy were at London Euston station on March 31st to officially unveil Virgin Trains’ X-Men train which will be running for the next four months. They did a short interview from the train and posed together for photos.
Earlier this week, we got to see a brand new trailer for Bryan Singer’s upcoming Marvel movie, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’. After watching it a few times (or by checking out any number of promotional material for the next installment of the mutant franchise), you can see that there is a HUGE cast being assembled for this epic superhero movie. Now, a new promo has been released to help keep all the names and faces straight.
On this week’s episode of ‘Ink Master’ on Spike TV, Hugh Jackman appeared to judge some X-Men themed tattoos. And like any good guest, he did not show up empty handed. During the show, he shared a new video featuring a ton of new footage and a roll call of some of the characters that we’ll be seeing when Wolverine travels back in time to save the future like Storm, Sunspot, Iceman, and Quicksilver (who definitely doesn’t look as cool as his ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ counterpart). You can check out the new promo below courtesy of Tumblr user fangirloffuturepast, followed by the official synopsis:
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’. The beloved characters from the original ‘X-Men’ film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from ‘X-Men: First Class’, in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
What do you think about the latest bit of promotional material for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’? What character are you most looking forward to seeing more of once the movie is released? Let us know in the comment section.
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, and Evan Peters is set to hit theaters on May 23, 2014.
It’s another day, another date with a US president for Hugh Jackman as he headlines a Clinton Foundation fundraiser in New York.
Hugh Jackman certainly has friends in high places.
After helping out US President Barack Obama by hosting a Christmas TV special in Washington DC, the Australian actor and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, will headline a fundraiser in New York for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.
The event, at the Plaza Hotel on May 1, will benefit the former first family’s Clinton Foundation. Guests should bring their cheque books.
For $US100,000 a donor earns the title of Event Chair, scores a table for 10, an invitation to an exclusive reception with the Clintons and Jackmans, and an invite to the Clintons’ annual November retreat.
If you can’t muster up six figures, a $US2500 donation gets you a ticket to the reception, dinner and title of Friend.
This is sure to be a memorable event and all ticket sales will benefit the Clinton Foundation’s ongoing work to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for women and girls, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of global climate change, according to the invitation.

The sound you are hearing right now is more than likely the collective sighs of relief from Marvel fans all around the world. It was announced last week that Twentieth Century Fox has officially attached a release date to the upcoming sequel to the 2013 film The Wolverine. There was just one problem…there was not confirmation regarding the return of the biggest, most important name in the film; the man who has played Wolverine for the last 14 years.
Thankfully, all of that has changed. Deadline is reporting that Hugh Jackman will indeed be returning to the claw wielding role we have all come to know and love.
At this particular point and time, there are no details available as to where the story will pick up or where they plan to take it. As you can imagine, he production is still in the very early stages, so it may be a little while until we see some solid information on that front.
Director James Mangold, who directed the previous Wolverine film, will be returning to his seat behind the camera. Screenwriter David James Kelly, who has also been tasked with writing the upcoming currently untitled Daredevil reboot will also be penning the script for The Wolverine 2.
As I said, there is not a lot of information available at this point; however, it is definitely a good sign that they have been able to secure Jackman for at least one more go-around as our favorite claw-wielding mutant.
Mangold revealed on Twitter last week that the movie would begin filming after the completion of X-Men: Apocalypse.
The Wolverine 2 is scheduled to be released on March 3, 2017.
