Starting this Sunday, February 15th, viewers across the U.S. can witness the origins of one of the year’s most anticipated films, when Fox debuts an exclusive, three-part reveal of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, on the FOX net.
For this unprecedented promotional event, the studio has created three special 60-second spots that will air over the course of three nights on FOX. Together, with one spot leading into the next, the spots will form a narrative revealing the origins of Wolverine, and the epic revolution that pits him and other legends of the X-Men universe against powerful forces determined to eliminate them.
The first spot will air on Sunday during Family Guy (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT); the second on Monday, Feb. 16th during House (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT); and the third will air Tuesday, Feb. 17th during American Idol (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
Following Tuesday’s broadcast of the final spot, all three reveals will be released on exclusively Yahoo Movies.
Hugh Jackman, who reprises his role as Wolverine, is joined by Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Dominic Monaghan and Ryan Reynolds, as well as Taylor Kitsch, will.i.am and Lynn Collins. Gavin Hood directs from a script by David Benioff and Skip Woods. The producers are Lauren Shuler Donner, Ralph Winter, John Palermo and Jackman.
