Must Watch: Hugh Jackman Rages in New Trailer for 'The Wolverine'

May 21, 2013

The Wolverine

"Eternity can be a curse. A man can run out of things to live for." Honestly, the first domestic trailer for The Wolverine from director James Mangold was a little underwhelming for this writer. The international trailer that was released around the same time did a much better job of painting this sequel in the right light, but still getting the story and action across. However, there are still worries that this film is cut from the same mold as the less than stellar X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Well, this new trailer hits some of the same beats as the first, but is edited and presented in a much better way with some solid new action.

Here's the new trailer for James Mangold's The Wolverine from the film's YouTube Channel:

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 on July 26th later this summer. Are you excited now?

Looks like they've finally got Wolverine right, but will anyone who watched Origins go to see it?

El_MUERkO on May 21, 2013


OK guys gotta STOP this criticism of :Origins . UNLESS you've actually read the source material for it . It was a 6-issue graphic novel ( which I have SOMEWHERE still ) done to literally re-invent his past. Once again( noted below ) because Marvel wanted to humanize him more . If you had bought/read the novels , you would know that the movie was a pretty close adaption of them . They didn't set out to please us hardcore Logan fans , they just took the movie from the 6-issue set . It fits the timelines of all the X-movies better , also . And the last scenes set up " Logan in Japan " it's a process , people ....

Dominic on May 23, 2013


What?? Anyone who has read those comics would know how INaccurate Origins was-- it wasn't close to being faithful! It just glosses over that six-issue series in the cheesiest way possible, removing all of the important and interesting aspects. It took, like, a minute and a half-- how the hell can you faithfully adapt entire story in that amount of time? We criticize Origins BECAUSE we've read the damn books. Besides Origin, which was about was about his childhood and early years, there's also the matter of Barry Windsor-Smith's Weapon X, one of THE most important Wolvie stories ever written. Gonna claim that the film was faithful to that as well?

**an** entire story

DeadManDann on May 23, 2013


BRAVO DEADMANDANN!!!! Obviously Dominic didnt read the "Orgins"

Red X on May 23, 2013


:o) I'll go find it , somewhere in my 20 crates of CBs ...

Dominic on Jul 25, 2013


It's Hollywood whateve rage always has to be about the girl ... so yes the story separates after he walks out on Stryker and Victor .. and yes it's ignoring all of the Canadian stuff...but I don't think it was a bad movie after that . It just seems people wanna sound cool and pile on without knowing the source the base of why he became a loner is there and faithful to the graphic novels.

Dominic on Jul 25, 2013


The whole point of people making movies is that other people don't have to read "source material".No, I didn't read it, I don't care for reading whatsoever. That's why I watch movies. I saw Origins and I didn't like it.

Nash on Jul 27, 2013


Now that's a fucking trailer.

DAVIDPD on May 21, 2013


Well this trailer has sold me

Jon Odishaw on May 21, 2013


Mega samurai mayhem.

Carpola on May 21, 2013


Would've been nice if they saved The Silver Samurai reveal for the film, but it was still pretty badass.

Matt Peloquin on May 21, 2013


Lets put it this way...many people said iron man 3 trailer was good, but the flick end up like s** stop saying "i'm sold" shall we...this wolverine is just an ordinary trailer after all...

safichan on May 21, 2013


IM 3 being shit is purely your opinion. I know many who thought it was great, me included.

Cody W on May 21, 2013


Nope..its not my opinion entirely...ask rotten tomatoes...its officially shit...

safichan on May 21, 2013


its a pity that anyone really uses rotten tomatoes as a hub for defining a movie as good or not good. To me its your own damn fault for not enjoying the movie. Next time listen to your mom, if you do not have anything nice to say than don't say anything at all 🙂

The Splinter on May 22, 2013


Wise words Master Splinter

Donatello on May 22, 2013


Well if you ask RT you'll see that most reviews by fans and critics are positive. What the Hell are you talking about? You are so wrong

Max on May 22, 2013


I agree, I thought IM3 was better than 2 (which I also didn't mind). Calling it 'shit' is pretty harsh. Maybe they're just mad because they were expecting Avengers 2.

BWalsh on May 22, 2013


I hope this isn't an excuse to weaken Wolverine permanently for future projects like they did to Superman in the books when they revamped (updated) him.

Johnny Neat on May 21, 2013


this arc was gone to plenty of times in the CB , where he has to survive without his healing factor . It was about humanizing him , to appeal to a wider (female) audience . Standard stuff in superhero dramas . everything's a trilogy nowadays , so movie 3 he'll be better than ever .... Cause he used to be vicious as an alley cat , as he was introduced to us CB fans

Dominic on May 23, 2013


Pretty mediocre trailer's gonna suck guys....Mangold can't do epic action, or even a nice trailer

dawko on May 21, 2013


Not sure.

Xerxexx on May 21, 2013


@ 2:19 .....Real Steel 2

JohnnyBoy on May 21, 2013


Action scenes seems lame....

Bob on May 21, 2013



Quanah on May 21, 2013


OMG!!! im so not there! doesn't looks atractive to me

toonfed on May 21, 2013


It's still pretty meh. But, I never had high hopes for this movie to begin with.

Broseph Brosullini on May 21, 2013


this days,why action movies are given to such directors? ... Skyfall and now Wolverine...this guys could handle better jobs than action movies,or this is because of less action directors?

Bob on May 21, 2013


hmmm a low opinion of action movies huh ?

Dominic on May 23, 2013


This movie will most likely be PG-13, but I feel like it could really benefit from an R-rating. Maybe a future director's cut, perhaps?

Triton on May 21, 2013


Wolverine ORIGINS! This looks like a worthy sequel. Both look like garbage. They might as well have snaked Gavin Hood from Ender's Game and have him direct both. Clearly, they weren't shooting for something far superior.

Insider on May 21, 2013


My absence of faith in Mangold seems to be ringing true.

Cody W on May 21, 2013


GOMEON! So they showed in the TRAILER that Jean Grey is in the movie, and that she is but a dream.....I don't get why they would show that in a trailer, spoils it. Well, here's to hoping for a hint that she will indeed resurrect and be in the 4th X-Men movie-or will they show that in the final trailer....

David Banner on May 22, 2013


it was a good bet that she was a dream anyway . I thought that when i saw her scene from the 1st trailer . And BTW , if they resurrect her , then it should be as the REAL Phoenix (one who woulda fried Logan at the end of XMan3 )which doesn't sound like what you want . :o) maybe you just like Famke ....

Dominic on May 23, 2013


Oh sweet baby jesus I am stoked!

Michael Paterson on May 22, 2013


In current Japan, Wolverine is out of his profundity in an unfamiliar planet as he faces his extreme enemy in a last chance fight that will abandon him eternity altered. Defenseless despite anything that might have happened before and pushed to his physical points of confinement, he ...
