Wolverine Hugh JackmanLast week Hugh Jackman announced on YouTube that he wants to reward fans by bringing a Hollywood-style premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine to their town, complete with stars from the movie that opens nationwide May 1.

Local schools, businesses and, of course, the legions of X-Men and Wolverine fans are joining forces to create special videos on YouTube, launching Web sites and conducting grass roots campaigns — all urging their neighbors to vote for their town.

The top 10 leading towns as of Wednesday, April 8, are: Davis, Calif.; Hastings, Neb.; Austin, Texas; Melbourne, Fla.; Dallas; San Antonio; Las Vegas; Tempe; Chicago; and Philadelphia.

To put in a bid to host the premiere, entrants need only remember that “X marks the spot”: at the Web site, they should mark their town with a digital “X.” The location with the most votes/Xs will win the red carpet, star-studded movie premiere on April 27. The winning town will be announced on April 20.

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.
