trailer break: ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

So all through this trailer I’m thinking, Is that Liev Schreiber? And then, at the end, it’s clear that it is. And that is seriously cool. There really is no one our age (he’s two years older than me) who isn’t a comic book geek, is there?

I love the Dark Knight vibe here: the haunted childhood, all the bad things that’ve shaped our boy. I guess there are no mutant superheroes who grew up happy, either. So it’s always with the desire for revenge lingering and driving them, eh?

Couple questions: Is that a young Cyclops and a young Storm making an appearance here? And how is it that Hugh Jackman looks like he’s hulked out without FX? Did he work out 24/7 for a year in preparation for this role? Yikes.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens in the U.S. on May 1; no U.K. release date has been announced yet (though it’ll probably be the same day).
