In a time where he is primarily known for playing Wolverine in Marvel's X-Men series, it seems appropriate to rank the best Hugh Jackman movies of all time. Fans will also enjoy lesser known facts about Hugh Jackman and childhood photos of the Australian actor. This list features all his X-Men films, but it includes his the rest of his amazing filmography as well. Take 2006's The Prestige for example, where Jackman brilliantly played aristocratic magician Robert Angier in a performance that required both incredible showmanship and charisma. Jackman shined again in the 2012 musical Les Misérables, playing the lead role of ex-con Jean Valjean which subsequently earned him an Academy Award nomination.

In 2017, Hugh Jackman will make his final appearance as Wolverine in Logan. But who knows? Jackman might make a cameo in future films or even return for another Wolverine standalone movie. 

The Hugh Jackman movie list below includes trailers and clips of each movie, so if there's a movie you haven't seen then be sure to preview it right here on this page. Vote for your favorite films on the list, but don't downvote something if you haven't seen it. 

Hugh Jackman has worked with many famous directors, including big names like Christopher Nolan and Brett Ratner. If Hugh Jackman movies are your thing, then check out the greatest movies by Martin Freeman and Chris Hemsworth too.
