Holy ab alert! It's no secret that we love us a nice six pack, but when we saw this just-released photo of Hugh Jackman from The Wolverine, we have to admit we were completely mesmerized by his mind-boggling (and beyond jacked!) midsection. Scary blade hands aside, Jackman looks like he's gotten into the best shape of his life—and that's saying a lot!—for the role, which is the first self-titled reprisal of his X-Men character. The film isn't slated to hit theaters until July, so there's still a while to go before we can fully feast our eyes on his rippling obliques. In the meantime, come December, you can catch Jackman alongside Anne Hathaway in Les Miserableswhich we are guessing will feature a slightly less ab-centric performance.

Plus, enjoy more amazing abs!
