X–Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine

This film tells the story of James Logan's (Wolverine) past, his relationship with Victor Creed (Sabretooth), and the ominous
Weapon X programme.

Bride Wars (2009)

Two best friends, Liv and Emma, become rivals when a clerical error has scheduled their weddings on the same day at the same place. Cast include Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, and Candice Bergen.

An almost non
