Trailer Pick of the Week – X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Even if you’re unfamiliar with all the details of this superhero comic series, there’s something appealing about the trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It opens with Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber being enlisted in some “secret government project.” That’s what’s referred to in the biz as an “eyebrow-raiser.” Next up? Impressive crashes and explosions, enhanced by a steady crescendo of menacing music. And then the moneyshot: a glimpse of Wolverine’s transition from man into animal.

Also in theaters this weekend Ghosts of Girlfriend Past, Battle for Terra and at the Tribeca Film Festival: Midgets vs. Mascots.
