A couple of items of interest to most Pajiba fans happened over weekend. First off, for those of you fortunate enough to miss The Day the Earth Stood Still over the weekend, there was one highlight. The X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailer debuted (below). To answer to your burning questions: Ryan Reynolds has about a half-a-second shot in the trailer, and Taylor Kitsch has all of 5 seconds devoted to his character, Gambit. It’s mostly Hugh Jackman bearing his chest and a lot of Liev Shrieber snarling, in addition to one helluva laughable slingshot onto a helicopter scene. I can’t say I was hugely impressed.
Also, related: Hugh Jackman has been tapped to host next year’s Oscar ceremony, an odd choice but for the fact that he’s hosted the Tony Awards thrice.
In other news, the first images for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes appeared online over the weekend. There are two images — one’s not that exciting, just shows Robert Downey, Jr.’s Sherlock with Jude Law’s Watson, but the other offers another glimpse of Robert Downey, Jr. without his shirt.
RDJ with no shirt? Hugh Jackman flashing nipple? You know what that means, right? It’s time for another of Pajiba’s Great American Ab-Offs! From the most professional movie review and news site on the internet comes this tense, gripping contest between two formidable chests. In one corner: Robert Downey, Jrs.’ slightly bloody, rib-prominent pecs, and in the other, Hugh Jackman’s hairy man-bulges.
Which chest will come out with both nipples. You vote: Who has the better abs?
