He's not PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive for nothin'. Hugh Jackman shows off his metal claws – and his muscular shirtless bod – in a new action-packed trailer for Wolverine, due to hit theaters May 1.

in the clip, the hunky star – who as the recent Oscar host also demonstrated that he's a classic song-and-dance man – growls, jumps and slices his way through a host of the bad guys, including a formidable Liev Schreiber.
