The Hamptons has its very own celebrity superhero now that Hugh Jackman is in town.
Since the A-lister and wife Deborra-Lee Furness were seen house hunting in Water Mill back in April, Jackman has been popping up around the East End, being kind and helping out. If that didn’t make him a superhero already, the buff star’s latest blockbuster The Wolverine is set to open July 26—and the trailer has been making its rounds online since Thursday. Check it out below!
Here’s how the producers are pitching the film:
Based on the celebrated Marvel comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
It should also be noted that Jackman‘s X-Men costar Famke Janssen is listed among cast members (and in the trailer), so it’s likely Jean Grey (Marvel Girl, Phoenix) will make more than a cameo appearance! To learn more, watch the trailer below and visit thewolverinemovie.com.
