New Japanese trailer for The Wolverine shows a few new bits and a name change

2 years agoby:

So, not only does Japan have its very own trailer for THE WOLVERINE, but they have their very own title as well; THE WOLVERINE: SAMURAI. Based on the themes, location, and source material, it's pretty fitting, really. So much so that it wouldn't hurt to call it the same everywhere else, even if it's a bit obvious. No matter, though. The key is content, not title, and THE WOLVERINE certainly looks to have quite a bit going on. As cool as it looks, however, it seems to be losing a little steam with its comic-book competitors this summer, including IRON MAN 3 and MAN OF STEEL, both of which will likely beat the ol' Canucklehead at the box office.

This new-ish Japanese trailer shows off a few new bits, but nothing Earth-shattering. However, it does add an air of authenticity with the subject matter, making it slightly cooler with the foreign elements. I kind of dig it.

What say you, bub?:

THE WOLVERINE, starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Svetlana Khodchenkova, and Famke Jannsen slices its way to theaters on July 26, 2013.

Not Excited


This looks pointless to me..... Hugh Jackman looks great........ but many years ago, I think Jack Nicholson would have been the best Choice for Wolverine, I believe he was born to play that role..... Watch the movie WOLF with him and James Spader.....especially that fight scene in the Barn,...Pure Wolverine-ish
I also believe Tom Cruise was born to play Spider Man.... he would fit amazingly into Avengers as Spider Man.
And the guy who played Hell Boy should have been Judge Dredd......or

The title is funny

It's got an English word written in Japanese and a Japanese word written in English.

I'm glad they filmed this in japan. If nothing else it should do well in the Japanese market. It's also good when they get Japanese people playing Japanese people: nobody in Asia was happy when Zhang Zi-li played a geisha in Memoirs of a Geisha. It all looks very authentic which is the right way to do it.

this movie is appears to be more "self contained" than Thor, Ironman 3 or the Superman movie, the consequenses in the movie will effect only Loganand those closest to him than the whole planet like the other movies I mentioned

THE CLAWS

I'm still pissed about the claws. In all of the pictures and trailers you can tell he is just holding the claw weapon any geek can buy. They don't come out of his hands AT ALL.

Damn Hollywood, why can't they use someone with real claws.

Not "someone with real claws" but they can take the fucking effort and make it come out of the back of his hands. They have done it before. Now it's just lazy. He is just a guy HOLDING weapons instead of being wolverine with the claws coming out.

It doesn't look bad. May be a sleeper.

I'm sure he meant sleeper, as in a sleeper-hit. The fact the movie is being over-shadowed in its marketing and buzz compared to the likes of Man of Steel and/or Iron Man 3, doesn't cement it's quality to being any lower. It might surprise people opening day; then a greater following may be inspired through its box office numbers.

To be a sleeper hit I figured you needed a low budget, and low expectations.

Not necessarily, though I used to think so. It's really all about promotion, marketing, and expectation. Budget, ironically, doesn't deter a movie from being a sleeper-hit. Fox is just doing a meager job for this movie. At least for now.

Ninjas riding around rooftops on motorcycles. Wish I hadn't seen that, but everything else I liked.

I thought the trailer was good and the movie looks great. Even though Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel look amazing, I think The Wolverine looks just as good.

Will be there opening night to see this.
