London, UK – Experience the very first chapter of the high-octane X-Men saga through the eyes of a true Marvel legend when X-Men Origins: Wolverine arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on 19 October 2009 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him a superstar, as the fierce fighting machine who possesses amazing healing powers, adamantium claws, and a primal fury known as berserker rage. Spanning over 150 years, X-Men Origins: Wolverine chronicles young James Logan and his tortured past… from boy, to man, to mutant.  From conflicts with his half brother Victor Creed – aka Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber; Defiance), his membership in Team X, his infamous adamantium rebirth and the total memory loss that ultimately fuels his angry quest, X-Men Origins: Wolverine paints the vivid and difficult roots of rage of the legendary superhero.
