Bits of New Footage and Action in Japanese 'The Wolverine' Trailer
The first couple trailers for The Wolverine didn't blow me away. Honestly, while the idea of Wolverine confronting mortality is one of the more interesting approaches to a story, I can't help but think this would be much better in the hands of Darren Aronofsky. As of now, my interest is still there, but I'm worried we might have another subpar film, though hopefully better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, maybe it was just the editing of the trailers that threw me off. This new Japanese trailer has repurposed a lot of footage from the first international trailer, but it somehow works better for me. Maybe it's the title Wolverine: Samurai that makes it feel more epic, but there's also some new footage and action. Watch!
Here's the Japanese trailer for James Mangold's The Wolverine via Bleeding Cool:
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 Marvel mutant all the way to Japan. 20th Century Fox is releasing James Mangold's The Wolverine in theaters everywhere July 26th this summer. Looking like a summer hit?
