Hand and Footprint Ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater
Hugh Jackman will be honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, on April 21, at 11:00 a.m.
The Tony® and Emmy®-winning actor, who recently hosted the Academy Awards, joins a very select list of Hollywood luminaries whose hand and footprints and signatures have been immortalized in cement in the famed theater’s forecourt.
Twentieth Century Fox is extending a special invitation to Jackman’s legions of fans – as well as to the community of X-Men and Wolverine comics readers and movie enthusiasts – to “witness the origins” of this special event at 10:00 a.m.
The event precedes the May 1 release of Jackman’s new film, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, in which he returns to the role that launched him to superstardom, as the beloved mutant antihero Wolverine. 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.
