LONDON--July 19, 2013: Fans lined the streets of London’s Leicester Square earlier this week to catch a glimpse of Australian actor and Audi ambassador Hugh Jackman at the world premiere of ‘The Wolverine’. Jackman was also joined by co-stars and of course the Audi R8, which makes a number of cameo appearances in the highly anticipated film.

Hugh delighted fans at the premiere, sporting his trademark beard made famous by his character Logan, chatting and posing with fans and the Audi R8.

The Wolverine is the second installment and follow up to the 2009 smash X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It also marks the sixth installment of the successful X-Men series.

Jackman was happy to drive himself to the premiere in the Audi R8 whilst the rest of the stellar cast, including Will Yun Lee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto, Famke Janssen and director James Mangold - were chauffeured to the red carpet by a fleet of Audi A8 limousines.

The film, due for Australian general release on July 25th, is based on the celebrated comic book arc. This epic action adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.

Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, Wolverine confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.

In the film, the character Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is driven by Yukio (Rila Fukushima) in an Audi R8 Spyder. Additional vehicles featured in the film include the Audi A8 L and the Ducati Diavel.
