Twentieth Century Fox has released a new trailer and poster for director James Mangold's upcoming film The Wolverine (2013), starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, and Tao Okamoto. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on July 26h.
Official plot outline: Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.
Update: Full-length domestic and international trailers are now available:
I have faith in the source material for this; The Wolverine 1982 mini-series written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by Frank Miller. One of the very first comics I read as a kid. Ten shades of awesome. Waiting for a real trailer before I form an opinion...
I don't see how anyone can say it looks underwhelming from a 10 second teaser trailer. Really? Give it a chance. Anything is better than the last one. At least it looks like they got the tone right, which is darker and a lot more serious.
I don't have any faith in this. Considering how badly Fox interfered in the last production and how horribly a recent studio actioner (A Good Day to Die Hard) turned out, I wouldn't expect anything better than a mediocre film. All Fox cares about is money and that is reflected in the quality of so many of their recent films.
Doesn't look too bad. I wish they could fix what the franchise did to Cyclops. First relegated to second banana status and then vaporized uncerimoniously. Maybe we'll get a cameo at least some day. Why exactly are there so many people who come on this site just to trash everything on here? It's weird. I kind of figured this would be a site where you'd read posts from people who are passionate about movies and post occasional positive thoughts about them. It seems to be kind of the opposite. Mad about remastering on just about every catalog release and then just bile spewing hatred of movie trailers. I like the classic Wolverine setting made famous in the comics years ago. It's also interesting to note that Jackman might be a mutant in real life. Does he age slower than the rest of us?
I hated the first Wolverine movie, but I'm kind of looking forward to this one, purely on the basis of the source material. I'll likely wait to hear the intial reviews of it before going to see it, though.
