Yesterday (July 16th), at Empire Leicester Square in London, Hugh Jackman attened the UK premiere for The Wolverine. Co-stars Famke Janssen, Will Yun Lee, Tao Okamoto, Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima and Hiroyuki Sanada were all in attendance along with director James Mangold. Deborra-Lee Furness was also at the event; however, she arrived separately from Hugh and later joined him at the inside red carpet.
On Monday, July 15th, Hugh Jackman attended the Seoul premiere for The Wolverine. After attending the press conference earlier in the day, he headed to Coex in South Korea and was greeted by legions of fans. As far as I can tell, he was the only cast member to attend. A bunch of photos from the event – including Hugh signing autographs and walking the red carpet – have been added to the gallery.
For those lucky fans attending Comic-Con 2013, you have something else to be excited about: Fox has just announced that they are bringing The Wolverine to the event. Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold are expecting to appear to talk about the film. They’ve also promised “something major,” which some are speculating means an X-Men: Days Of Future Past panel. We’ll find out what that surprise is – and what Hugh has to say at Comic-Con – on the day of the event, July 20th. More info below:
When the official Comic-Con schedule landed last week, one studio’s presentation summary was left blank. 20th Century Fox didn’t reveal what it would be bringing to Hall H on Saturday, but now there’s some information on what big-name stars will be in attendance.
The Wolverine will claw its way into the presentation, with Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold both participating. The film will hit theaters shortly after the Con, on July 26.
The invite for the studio’s press conferences also teases a surprise panel and promises “something major.” There’s speculation that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be the big surprise. The film hits theaters in May 2014.
Fox’s panel begins at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday in Hall H. Comic-Con runs July 17-21 in San Diego.
It’s that time again: with The Wolverine coming out soon, Hugh Jackman is hitting up the press junkets! Yesterday, July 10th, the first one for this film was held — right in New York City. By clicking below, you’ll be able to check out numerous interviews from the NY press round.
I’ll be adding any new interviews that pop up directly to this post so that I’m not constantly updating HJF and inundating the main page with videos (which quickly slow the site down); most recently added will be at the top. If you want a heads up on recently added videos, follow HJF on Twitter as I always tweet the latest.
Recently, Access Hollywood sat down with Hugh Jackman to talk all things The Wolverine. There are four videos in the series, in which he discusses why he still loves playing Wolverine, his diet plan (including what he eats as his “cheat meal”), training for increasingly intense action scenes, and whether or not he’ll be naked in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. They’re all short but lovely videos, and Hugh looks great in them — rocking the chops while promoting the beloved comic character is a nice touch!
With thanks to Courtney, HJF now has HD, 720p screen caps for Movie 43. Hugh Jackman had a small role in the film, acting alongside Kate Winslet for a very funny scene that opened the multi-skit comedy. Please be aware that the caps are NSFW, as the content is a bit crude — and that does entail prosthetics on Hugh’s face. There’s also a few caps from the bloopers shown over the credits.
ComicBookMovie.com has shared this amazing, seven-minute long behind the scenes video for The Wolverine. Most of it features Hugh Jackman in the title role, showing off his fighting skills and casual on set camaraderie with cast/crew members. It’s all b-roll footage, which is always pretty interesting to check out when you’re into movies in general. There’s also further sneak peeks at the film itself, so give it a watch!
