In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Hugh plays Wolverine, a mutant with razor-sharp claws who faces off against his archenemies.
Watch the X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailer!
Die-hard fans have been counting down the days until this premiere, and Hugh had a special surprise in store for some.
The night before the movie premiered nationwide, Hugh sneaked into a midnight showing in Chicago. "I surprised them," he says. "We ran the trailers as normal, and then, all of a sudden, the lights went up and they're like, ‘Boo.' And I said, ‘Sorry, there's been a technical problem.'"
When Hugh walked out, the crowd went wild! "They're the real fans," he says.
