A new international trailer for ‘The Wolverine’ has now debuted online and is bringing with it more new footage and plot details than the previous ones.
With only a few more weeks before its premiere, the trailers seem to be amping up and focusing more on the action. We have a lot more footage of Viper (played by Svetlana Khodchenkova) and her abilities and a little more of the Silver Samurai. Still on the fence about whether or not I like the robotic look of this character, but I do like the notion that Logan is no longer invincible and how he deals with that tidbit.
It will be interesting to see how movie goers take to this new darker version of Wolverine. With ‘Iron Man 3’ grossing $1.2 billion worldwide and ‘Man of Steel’ tracking to break records, he’s hoping ‘The Wolverine’ will also be a bona fide hit.
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.
Directed by James Mangold, ‘The Wolverine’ stars Hugh Jackman, Famke Janssen, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Hiroyuki Sanada and will be in theaters on July 26th.
