I’ll come right out and say it. The Wolverine is hands down the coolest X-Men of them all (we at GST don’t think it’s open to debate but you can certainly make your case in the comments below). But let’s face it, the last outing with Logan, make that the last two outings were awful movies and simply not what we as fans deserved. So with two strikes against the studio, James Mangold stepped to the plate and has been hard at work crafting the latest, hopefully redeeming adventure about our beloved adamantium enhanced amnesiac. So far everything we’ve seen from the Mangold camp looked good. Too good in fact and as the upcoming back story, that will somehow erase the timeline (and memories?) of X-Men Origins, will give us more of Logan’s shady history and possibly be the first good Wolverine movie since X2. We can only hope right?
The hotly anticipated film The Wolverine has been teased with slick teaser posters, motion posters, actual posters, Mangold’s tweets about the 10 films that inspired this film, an odd “tweaser” (my how innovative the marketing departments are getting these days), etc and now we finally have a trailer. But what’s that? Not good enough for you? Then how about TWO trailers. Here is both the international and domestic trailer for The Wolverine…Enjoy!
Annnd because we like you all so much, here’s the official trailer exclusively from Apple…
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh 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.
Starring Hugh Jackman, director James Mangold and 20th Century Fox will be bringing The Wolverine theaters this Summer on July 26, 2013. And as far as other X-Men related news Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is slated for wide release next year on July 18th, 2014.
