You can't keep a good X-Man down.
Hugh Jackman's movie prequel "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has leaped to the top of the box office with an $87 million opening weekend.
That puts it right in the pack with the three previous "X-Men" movies in which Jackman played the character of mutant superhero Wolverine.
The trilogy's final chapter, "X-Men: The Last Stand," had the franchise's best opening with $102.8 million.
But "Wolverine" came in ahead of the first two movies. "X-Men" did $54.5 million in its first weekend and "X2: X-Men United" did $85.6 million.
