20th Century Fox has unveiled the first clip from "The Wolverine", giving us a look at the title character (Hugh Jackman) fighting on top of a bullet train in Japan. Check out the sequence below.
Plot: The story, which takes place after "X-Men: The Last Stand," finds Logan (Jackman) 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.
"The Wolverine is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line) and is set to hit theaters on July 26th.
Serious question: Has anyone else stopped watching these mini-clips, like me? I'm at a point now where I want as much of a film to feel fresh and new when I see it at home or in the theatre. The trailers already show too much, and these clips are just overkill, imo.
@Cress: the fact you admit to possibly watching this at home means it's not a theatrical must see, thus one could conclude you're not that emotionally invested in the film anyway, like most people who by this time are either burned out on the character of feel FOX has done a total wonderf*ck on the property.
I do not think this will be an awful movie because Jackman still championed the production of it even after darry arrow dropped out. Hugh could have easily dropped out as I think he took an offset of being paid about 5 million to act in this as a producer paying about 12 million.
The clip? An assload of really bad green screen wherein Wolverine, the guy with adamantium spikes, regenerative skin and superhuman strength, battles for his life against a skinny Japanese guy with a knife.
A total waste of both Jackman and the Wolverine character, imo.
Sorry. These Wolverine movies just aren't living up to the character's potential, I'm afraid.
LOL! Damon Lindelof should stick to writing the beginning and middle of films and let someone else write the end, or do what most writers do and actually plan what's gonna happen at the end so you can structure a story around it.
This Wolverine looks as much of a B movie as the last Origins sh*tfest. Why are they even bothering with this franchise still, I can't imagine even the standard retard movie goer still cares about this character?
