First Look: Baz Luhrmann’s Australia

If you’ve been wondering what has kept Hugh Jackman from getting started on the X-Men Origins: Wolverine film, here is your answer. We’ve got our first look at Jackman and Nicole Kidman in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming flick Australia. Check out the film’s synopsis below.

Plot Synopsis: Luhrmann’s film is set in northern Australia prior to World War II and centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a cattle station the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn stock-man (Jackman) to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.

And now, the first look at Kidman, Jackman and an aborigine. Australia is due out September 5, 2008.
