Hugh Jackman Offers Fans An 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' Hometown Premiere

Wolverine isn't the most competitive guy on the planet -- after all, he's already the best at what he does. And the upcoming star of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" recently jumped in front of the camera to show exactly how generous he is, recording a special video message that offered one lucky X-Men fan the chance to win a hometown sneak preview of the film.


Over on the official contest website fans can throw enter the contest for an opportunity to bring an advanced screening of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to their local theater.

To enter the competition, voters are asked to submit their name, e-mail address, date of birth, state and zip code through an online form. The website displays a map of the United States and the city with the biggest "X" by April 17th wins the screening.

As of this writing, the fiercest battles appear to be on the eastern side of the country, though California is also seeing some stiff competition. Nonetheless, its plain to see that middle America is largely out of the competition, with some states such as Montana and North Dakota completely bare of competitive cities.

Still, in light of the recent leak of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," the timing seems awkward to champion an advanced preview contest when a rough version is available online. However, along with other reasons why you might want to opt out of viewing the leaked movie, there's absolutely nothing like the theatergoing experience -- especially for a movie that promises to be as epic as "Wolverine."

Seriously -- getting a chance to see Deadpool and Gambit on the big-screen before anyone else? We'll take that over squinting at a tiny computer monitor any day of the week.
