New character posters of Yukio and Viper for The Wolverine; new trailer debuts tomorrow

May. 20, 2013by:

Arguably the underdog comic book movie of the summer next to RED 2, James Mangold's THE WOLVERINE has debuted two new character posters for the film, featuring Yukio and Viper, as rendered in the graphite/watercolor fashion we've seen from the marketing department thus far. It's a pretty cool design choice to do the character posters this way, however I would like to see what the final poster holds in store.

Take a look:

In addition to these new posters comes the news that a new trailer will premiere tomorrow morning at 6 AM (PST), which will likely be the final "narrative" trailer for the film. So far, I'm impressed but not blown away by what I've seen. It's a foregone conclusion that I'll be seeing the film, which is likely the same for most fans, but I'm really hoping that this one turns it all around for ol' Logan. Like Robert Downey Jr. as IRON MAN, however, Hugh Jackman is more than enough to get my ass in the theater. It'd be nice if the movie did his presence justice, though.

THE WOLVERINE, starring Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukishima, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Hun Lee, Tao Okamoto, and Famke Janssen slices into theaters on July 26, 2013.

Love how this style of poster evokes traditional calligraphy-style paintings. It's a really dramatic and effective look.

Seeing the trailer on an actual movie screen compared to a computer one is what convinced to wanna see this movie & yea I Like how Jackman portrays Wolverine in the films, he was the only good part in Origins, bad CGI claws & all.

My expectations are high for this one. I think it looks terrific with Jackman looking his ever best as Wolverine.

This movie will be Origins all over again. Remember when Aronofsky was helming it? Jesus... what a sad turn of events for this film.

I'm still somewhat excited for this, but my expectations are kept at a reasonable level. I've come to realize that any movie with Jackman as Wolverine is at least watchable due to his treatment of the character. Like watching Diamonds Are Forever, even if it's a lesser Bond movie at the end of the day I'm still watching Connery play Bond so it's not all bad.
