Jackman's 'The Wolverine' Unveils a Rainy International Motion Poster
Introducing Hugh Jackman as Logan in the stand-alone The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold. 20th Century Fox has been releasing some fairly impressive bits of early marketing so far for The Wolverine, the spin-off Wolvie solo movie set in Japan based on the Frank Miller & Chris Claremont storyline. We've seen a badass first look and bone claws photo showing Jackman, plus the sleek teaser poster art and on set Q&A, now we've got a "motion poster" to unveil the international teaser poster - which is also quite badass. The artwork shows Logan crouched, clutching samurai sword in one hand, claws in the other, with a glimpse at the Tokyo Tower in the background. Love it. It's impressive artwork and such a dark but stunning tease.
Here's the original jpg poster, downloadable in high res from the international website for The Wolverine:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day) is directing The Wolverine from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback who are adapting the classic 1982 story arc in the Wolverine comics, which takes our favorite mutant all the way to Japan. The cast includes Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada and Rila Fukushima. 20th Century Fox is releasing The Wolverine in theaters starting July 26th, 2013 next summer. Check out this first look.
