‘Star Trek,’ ‘Wolverine,’ showing in Vail Valley
Vail, CO Colorado
“X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE”
X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s story starts in 1845, in darkest Canada, where young brothers James and Victor see the man they think is their father gunned down. Before the intruder can spit out what he has come to tell them, he gets skewered on the irate James’ nascent bone claws. Throughout history, James (Jackman) and Victor (Liev Schreiber) kick major enemy butt together. Victor/Sabretooth is always the more sadistic of the two. He’s one twisted, unkillable dude, actually, and James, a.k.a. Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine, constantly has to rein him in. (1:07) PG-13.
