X Men Origins

May 1, 2009 | Ben Fritz
The movie industry kicks off its lucrative and high-stakes summer season today with Fox's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" in the leadoff position. Although May is always a jampacked month at theaters, Hollywood is pushing the envelope this year with five "tent poles," all of which are sequels or spin-offs budgeted at well over $100 million, set to open by Memorial Day weekend. Last year the number was four and in 2007 it was three.

Whatever you do, you don't want to make Wolverine mad. First comes that god-awful earth-shattering scream, then those indestructible adamantium claws pop out of his hands, all leading to a display of what insiders call "berserker rage." Believe me, it's not a pretty picture. It is, however, a picture we see a lot of in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," the fourth movie to allow Hugh Jackman to play the darkly handsome, intense masculine poster boy for Marvel Comics' favorite band of mutants.
