THE WOLVERINE is No. 1 Fan Pick for Upcoming Weekend

According to Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoing destination, the highly-anticipated superhero flick, "The Wolverine," is the number one movie fans want to see this weekend -- scoring a sizable 91 out of 100 points on the company's Fanticipation buzz indicator.

"The Wolverine" is grabbing 51% of today's advance sales on Fandango, and is outpacing "X-Men: First Class" by 39% at the same point in that film's sales cycle.

Based on a survey of more than 1,000 "Wolverine" ticket purchasers on Fandango:
91% have seen the previous "X-Men" and "Wolverine" movies
73% would not want to see a "Wolverine" film without Hugh Jackman in the title role
70% say the exotic setting has increased their interest in seeing the movie
A whopping 95% cannot wait to see the follow-up film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (2014)

On this week's episode of Fandango's movie recommendation video series, "Weekend Ticket" (www.fandango.com/weekendticket), host Dave Karger interviews "Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman about his sixth time playing the Marvel creation, declaring they'll have to "pry this role right out of my hands - or the claws."
