Snikt! Here's the first trailer for THE WOLVERINE

1 min read

This is it. The moment that you’ve all been waiting for. You’ve been physically preparing yourself by doing funny things to your hair with styling gel, taping your mothers cutlery to your knuckles and waking up naked and amnesiac in a snowy forest (although that last part may just have been the fault of some Jager bombs).

All of this for the very first trailer for The Wolverine, director James Mangold’s long (and I mean loooong) anticipated take on everybody’s favourite berserker barraging X-Man. And now its finally here and whoo boy, wait till you get a load of this.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.


Once the blood returns to your brain after it had to rush to… er… other parts of your body, then you will probably realize that yes, that was indeed Famke Janssen aka Jean Grey that you just saw a snippet of. Before you once again divorce your brain of hemoglobin, just know that this will probably be some kind of flashback or dream sequence (as the soft lighting of that scene suggests) and not Jean Grey being resurrected. If that was on the cards though, then I’d be willing to bet that X-Men: Days of Future Past would be the place for it to happen.

The Wolverine stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee and will be SNIKT-SNIKT’ing its way into cinemas on July 26,2013

    Gavin Hood, are you paying attention? This is how you make a Wolverine movie.

      Origins was just made so spawn alternate stories and Gavin Hood
      took the fall. I’ve read that during the making of Origins Hood and the studio had several fall outs during filming. Also don’t forget the reshoots before the release.

      Hopefully he can redeem himself with Ender because he is talented.

      Got it.

      Well, that’s how you make a Wolverine trailer…

    So the first movie they spent half the time for him to BECOME Wolverine and this one half the time he will spend half the time NOT being Wolverine? Looks a bit flat, to be honest…

    Is everyone here very stoned? This looks like generic, cookie-cutter, hamfisted poo-poo at best. Granted, that might be the fault of a rather lackluster trailer, but I’m hardly chomping at the bit for this.

    I get the feeling that, should this film fail, it will be because people have no idea how to manage Wolverine as a character. He’s a badass and that needs to be shown, not merely implied with a stony face and a low, rumbling tone of voice.
