"X" Marks the Spot for over 3000 Towns across the U.S. as They Vie for Premiere of WOLVERINE


Jay Cochran - April 10, 2009
X-Men Origins: Wolverine Less than a week after Hugh Jackman announced on YouTube his plans to take the premiere of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE to the people who made the X-Men film series one of the industry’s biggest, over 3000 towns and cities across the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii) are making frenzied bids to nab the big event.

Local schools, businesses and, of course, the legions of X-Men and Wolverine fans, are joining forces to create special videos on YouTube, launching websites and conducting grass roots campaigns -- all urging their neighbors to vote for their town. (To put in a bid to host the premiere, entrants need only remember that “X marks the spot”: at the website x-menorigins.com/premiere, they should mark their town with a digital “X.” The location with the most votes/X’s will win the red carpet, star-studded movie premiere on April 27th.)

The top 10 leading towns (as of 4.8.2009) are:

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA
HASTINGS, NEBRASKA
AUSTIN, TEXAS
MELBOURNE, FLORIDA
DALLAS, TEXAS
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
TEMPE, ARIZONA
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA


The winning town will be announced on April 20th.

The “Origins” of the event came from Hugh Jackman, who plays the famed antihero in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. Jackman wanted to express his appreciation to the fans by hosting the premiere, in which he will bring the movie and a few of his “friends and enemies” from the film to the winning town. In addition to the stars and filmmakers, the event will have all the other trappings of a mega-Hollywood premiere, including the red carpet, klieg lights, and media coverage.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, unites Wolverine with several other legends of the X-Men universe, in an epic revolution that pits the mutants against powerful forces determined to eliminate them. Twentieth Century Fox releases the film everywhere May 1st.
