Swine Flu No Match for Jackman Fever

Not bad reviews, nor deadly swine flu, nor the fact that they'd already watched the movie for free on their computers could keep people out of theaters and away from Hugh Jackman's shirtless upper body this weekend — X-Men Origins: Wolverine made an incredible $87 million in three days, boding well for a sequel and many more Jackman-based Vulture slideshows (unless everyone who saw it drops dead from swine flu, we guess).

Placing a distant second this weekend was Ghosts of Girlfriends Past ($15.3 million), starring Matthew McConaughey, whose naked chest was roundly rejected by moviegoers in favor of Jackman's, and their health.
