Another Dark Photo from 'The Wolverine' While We Wait for a Trailer
The past is always behind you, but the memories still remain. That was the caption, or tagline, included with this new dark blue photo featuring Hugh Jackman as Logan in The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold (of Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day). We have yet to see a trailer and are patiently waiting one (because it has to be right around the corner considering this is due in theaters this July, word is with G.I. Joe: Retaliation later in March) so these photos are all that hold us over until that arrives. At least this one is badass and actually features some Japanese writing on the wall in front of him. More, more!
Here's the newest photo from James Mangold's The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, from Facebook:
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 this summer. Stay tuned for the trailer soon.

I hope this is more 3:10 TO YUMA and less KNIGHT AND DAY.

I really do not see the logic behind waiting until March for a trailer. This is a big summer movie. You know what is important in the crowded summer blockbuster season? A big opening weekend. You know how you obtain a big opening weekend? By having a lot of anticipation, not just online, but in the public. You know how you cultivate a lot of anticipation? By starting a marketing campaign far in advance? You know what isn't far in advance? 4 months ahead of the film's release. Iron Man - trailer last October Star Trek - trailer in December Fast and Furious 6 - Trailer earlier this month Man of Steel - teaser last summer, trailer in December Lone Ranger - teaser in October, another trailer since then Pacific Rim - trailer in December These are arguably the early calls for the biggest hits of the summer, because everyone is very excited for them. Since The Last Stand, the X-Men films have been grossing less and less at the domestic and worldwide box office. First Class set a low for North American ticket sales. The franchise needs to rebound, and last minute marketing is going to relegate a movie like this to being a '2nd choice'
