Beginning Sunday, Feb. 15, viewers across the nation can witness the origins of one of the year’s most anticipated movies, when Twentieth Century Fox debuts an exclusive, three-part reveal of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, on Fox.
For this unprecedented promotional event which is too big for one night the studio has created three special 60-second spots that will air over the course of three nights on Fox. Together, with one spot leading into the next, the spots will form a narrative revealing the origins of Wolverine, and the epic revolution that pits him and other legends of the X-Men universe against powerful forces determined to eliminate them.
The first spot will air Sunday, Feb. 15 during “Family Guy” (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT); the second on Monday, Feb. 16 during “House” (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT); and the third will air Tuesday, Feb. 17 during “American Idol” (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox.
Following Tuesday’s broadcast of the final spot, all three reveals will be released on Yahoo!
