(starring Hugh Jackman
). The earlier trailers weren't really appealing, but the more recent clips caught our attention. Should be a good time.
Gaming-wise, it should be a good week with RAGE
scheduled to launch in a few days, Dark Souls
, Just Dance 3
, NBA Jam
, NBA 2K12
, Spider-Man: Edge of Time
, among other titles.
