Boring Motion Posters Give 'The Wolverine' a Katana with His Claws
Just yesterday, the first bit of footage from tomorrow's first trailer for The Wolverine was revealed by director James Mangold on the 6-second video service called Vine. But now the bigger tease is here with a 20-second sneak preview of the full trailer coming tomorrow, which will be nearly two minutes long. Keen eyes noticed interesting bits in the Vine video, including an appearance from Famke Janssen that may or may not just be footage from X-Men: The Last Stand. In addition, two rather boring motion posters have been revealed. One is quite familiar, while the other is all new and kind of cool to see, but still lackluster.
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 next.
