With a second bout of skin cancer under his belt, Hugh Jackman isn't messing around.

At Saturday's global premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past in New York City, the star, 45, had a bandage on the side of his nose – and a message for fans.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Movie Trailer: Beware of the Dragon

Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf and the thirteen Dwarves might well be popcorn after their encounter with the oversized lizard in the second installment of the Hobbit trilogy – a prequel series that takes place 60 years before Lord of the Rings.

First, though, they must reach the dragon's lair at Lonely Mountain – not an easy feat, as it means potentially lethal encounters with a host of adversaries, including the skin-changer Beorn, a swarm of giant spiders in the Mirkwood Forest and the dangerous Woodland Elves.
