The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, (And Famke Janssen as Jean Grey???) is due out in theaters on July 26th, 2013. The tricky synopsis for the movie says “Wolverine makes a voyage to modern-day Japan, where he encounters an enemy from his past that will impact on his future.”
So it’s Back to the Future, with claws?
Any how, this is a promo trailer designed to help sell or pitch the movie at CinemaCon. It’s almost a silent movie of sorts, but we do see a very large Silver Samurai looking guy trying to cut Logan in 2.
I don’t know about you, but this trailer didn’t quite move me. Now my suspicion is that it may be just right for the hard-core Wolverine fan, so that’s not a bad thing, but there it is.
It’s directed (and written) by James Mangold, whose past credits include Knight and Day, 3:10 to Yuma and on TV, Vegas. So he has the chops for putting together a good action flick. So I’m not too worried in the creative force department.
What were your thoughts on this action fest clip from The Wolverine?
