‘The Wolverine’ Trailer #2

Wolverine chain

James Mangold took his sweet time releasing the first trailer for The Wolverine, but since then he (and Fox) haven’t been shy about showing off. The second domestic trailer for the comic book sequel, revealed today, has some more new footage still.

As if that weren’t enough to tempt you to keep reading, we also have two artsy new character posters for Yukio (Rila Fukushima) and Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova). Check it all out after the jump.

Generally, doing a Q&A on Twitter is futile. With only 140 characters total, accurately conveying the question and answer in a single tweet is a challenge. The other option, spreading the answers over several tweets, just looks bad. It’s one of the reasons why Reddit AMAs have become more of the go-to for the interative, online question and answer session with the fans.

Hugh Jackman did a Twitter Q&A for The Wolverine on Thursday and actually came up with a clever new spin. He read tweeted questions and shot video responses to them. He discussed all matter of the July 26 film, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past. We’ve embedded all eleven questions below. Read More »


James Mangold‘s take on Marvel’s popular character hits later this summer, in July, and we’ll probably see at least one more meaty trailer before the opening date. But for now, the one-minute trailer for The Wolverine that premiered at CinemaCon is now online, and you can watch it below. (This is most of the CinemaCon reel, at least — attendees also saw a bit of the train fight sequence, which isn’t here, and I believe a couple other minor bits, too.)

There’s a lot of footage here we’ve seen already, but there’s also enough new stuff to merit a look. The new footage doesn’t contribute much to our understanding of what the film’s full story arc covers, but it does give you a better look at the Silver Samurai and also offers a neat shot of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) seemingly overwhelmed by ninja.

The Wolverine EW

The speed with which interest in James Mangold‘s The Wolverine really seemed to deflate after the first trailer debut was pretty shocking. But then, that trailer wasn’t quite what people expected — the bullet chain sequence and the basic plot setup weren’t what many expected to see out of this Japan-set story. We still don’t know how the film really plays out, and won’t for a while, but after an intense swell of interest in The Wolverine I think the film has to regain audience trust.

There isn’t a lot of new footage in this Japanese trailer for The Wolverine — aka Wolverine: Samurai in Japan — and so this isn’t likely to be the trailer that turns things around. But the couple bits that are there might be of interest to hardcore fans. Read More »

Maybe it’s because Iron Man 3 is coming so soon, maybe it’s because we’ve started to speculate about the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two, or maybe it’s because X-Men: Days of Future Past is on the way. Whatever it is, my level of excitement for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine has started to dissipate in the last few weeks. It probably has something to do with the first trailer, which didn’t quite wow audiences, and seemed to go away from the original Chris Claremont story we’d believed The Wolverine was based on.

The film can certainly still save itself. It won’t be out until July 26, and the film’s director took to Twitter to show some interesting behind the scenes photos from the shoot. No Hugh Jackman here, but you do get an idea of some of the film’s gorgeous location filming and supporting cast. They’re extremely promising.  Read More »

The Wolverine

The Wolverine‘s first real trailer drops this week, and its marketing team is milking that for all it’s worth. Yesterday, we got our very first taste of footage thanks to a 6-second Vine video posted by director James Mangold. Today, we have an “extended” teaser for the trailer that clocks in at 20 seconds. Which I guess makes yesterday’s clip the teaser for the teaser for the trailer.

In addition, there’s a new motion poster that should help wash away some of the bad taste left behind by the last two non-motion ones. Check it all out after the jump.

Update: Two more poster variations have been revealed and are below.

The Wolverine header

Thanks in a large part to James Mangold‘s Twitter feed, we’ve been fed a steady stream of Wolverine images for the last several months. Today we get to gorge ourselves on eight more, plus two new posters.

The new pics offer much better looks at the trio of formidable ladies that have entered Wolverine’s life — Mariko (Tao Okamoto), Yukio (Rila Fukushima), and Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova). The posters, meanwhile, remind us that Hugh Jackman is really good at screaming with his shirt off. Hit the jump to check ‘em out.

[Update: There’s also a new Tweet from the official movie profile announcing the trailer debut on Wednesday. See it after the jump.]

We’ve seen promotional stills, character portraits, inspiration photos, and behind-the-scenes peeks from The Wolverine. We’ve heard all about the plot, the cameos, the timeline, and the themes. And so far, it all looks and sounds great. But a film doesn’t work unless what’s actually moving around on the screen does, and so far, we’ve yet to see a lick of footage from the James Mangold-directed film.

Fortunately, that’s all about to change. Mangold revealed today that the very first sneak peek will hit next week, followed a day later by the trailer. The timing fits perfectly with earlier rumors that the promo would be attached to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Hit the jump for the details.
