TRIVIA – HUGH JACKMAN
With “Eddie the Eagle” now available OnDemand, his “X-Men: Apocalypse” cameo this summer, “The Greatest Showman on Earth” currently filming, and the first trailer for “Logan” dropping this week (which marks the final time Hugh Jackman will don the Wolverine claws), I thought it would be appropriate to honor Mr. Jackman with some Cinema Squad Trivia!
