New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Film Still

Empire has just debuted several new film stills for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Only one featured Hugh Jackman, but it’s a great shot: him lounging as Wolverine – shirtless, no less – with a chest full of bullet holes. Check out the source for more stills, including looks at Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and director Bryan Singer.

The first trailer for the film drops on Tuesday, October 29th. Until then, enjoy a six-second teaser on Instagram.

‘The Wolverine’ Beijing Premiere

The day after Hugh Jackman attended the Beijing press conference for The Wolverine, he made an appearance at the premiere. It was the final destination for the movie’s promo tour. Although he was the only cast member on hand, the celebrations were not neglected; a large cake was on-hand for Hugh’s 45th birthday, which had only been a few days prior. There are a bunch of images from the event in the gallery now.

‘The Wolverine’ Beijing Press Conference

To finish off the press tour for The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman headed to one final destination: Beijing, China. On October 14th, he attended a press conference for the James Mangold-directed film and was interviewed in a solo panel with press on hand. You can check out the 20-minute video below, which is not dubbed over, so English-speaking fans might find it of interest. He, of course, talks about the film, including nice insight on (im)mortality — and how his mortality makes playing Wolverine pretty difficult.

MPTF Presents ‘Hugh Jackman… One Night Only’

Hugh Jackman’s 45th birthday was a big one as he celebrated it onstage at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater. For three hours, he performed for a star-studded crowd; attendees included Tom Cruise, Kristin Davis, Olivia Munn, Cybill ShepherdDarren Criss, X-Men director Richard Marx, good friend Richard Marx (who also joined Hugh on stage), and two Prisoners co-stars: Maria Bello and Terrence Howard. The evening was part of The Motion Picture & Television Fund’s annual charity event; this year, they raised $1.85 million from a live auction held after the program. You can read a detailed account (and rave review) from the evening on Deadline.

2013 Friends of the Hudson River Park Gala

Yesterday evening (October 4th), Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee Furness attended the 2013 Friends of the Hudson River Park Gala. The event – held at Hudson River Park’s Pier 57 in New York – was to honor the park and preview the upcoming community, retail, and cultural hub being built at the pier. Mayor Bloomberg, Brooke Shields, Martha Stewart, Joel Grey, and many others were also in attendance. Speaking of the park, here is what both Hugh and Deb had to say (quotes provided by WWD):

Deb: “This is so important to us because this is where we live. This is our city, and I think we live in the greatest city on earth and we all need to contribute to keep it beautiful.”

Hugh: “There’s not government funding at all. No public money is ever spent on the park, even though the public enjoys it. This is why New York is so great. New Yorkers always want our city to get better and better.”

Modern Luxury: Taking No Prisoners

Hugh Jackman is currently featured in Modern Luxury: Manhattan, talking about his latest film, Prisoners. You can read the article below, in which he touches upon parenthood a lot: what it means to be a “celebrity child” and how his children dictate what films he chooses now. (He also mentions both Oscar and Ava’s inclination to take the stage.) There’s, of course, some talk about his diet and the food restrictions he faces when working on movies like X-Men: Days of Future Past. And even if you’re uninterested in the words, there’s a pretty fantastic photo shoot that comes hand-in-hand with the feature, which you can view in the HJF gallery.

Hugh Jackman, the beyond-charming Australian-born actor, has come a long way from his first—and worst—job “inside a koala suit in the summer, in Sydney, for 12 bucks an hour, running around promoting the national park and wildlife foundation,” as he describes it.

Jackman received an Oscar nod last year for his rendition of the courageous protagonist, Jean Valjean, of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables, about which he says, “Getting that recognition from your peers is very, very satisfying.”

But, of course, Jackman isn’t just a thespian. His range is far-reaching. He’s an incredible dancer and singer—talents that earned him a Best Actor Tony Award for The Boy From Oz, his favorite role to date. “It was about the excitement of being able to ad-lib every night,” he says. “Plus, I could be way kinkier and naughtier as Peter Allen.”
