"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" Mexico City premiere postponed due to swine flu.

Smart move.....

US: Hugh Jackman may play a tough mutant superhero on Wolverine -- but he's still not safe from the swine flu virus.
A rep for Twentieth Century Fox confirms to Usmagazine.com the studio is postponing the X-Men Origins: Wolverine premiere -- set for Wednesday in Mexico City -- as the city deals with rapidly spreading swine flu.

The potentially deadly disease -- which has killed nearly 150 people so far in Mexico -- has slowly started appearing in the U.S. Schools, museums and movie theaters across Mexico City are closed to keep the flu from spreading.
"We were not only concerned about Hugh's welfare – and we would never send anyone into harm's way – but we also have an enormous office filled with people we care about," a studio rep tells Us. "There was no point in proceeding under the current conditions."
