The Wolverine CinemaCon trailer gives us our first glimpse of Silver Samurai

05.01.2013

I can't lie, the first trailer for THE WOLVERINE didn't blow me away. It looked good, it looked fun, but it didn't get me doing the movie pee-pee dance. However, this CinemaCon trailer, even at 60 seconds, definitely gets the juices flowing, especially with our first glimpse of Silver Samurai, who looks pretty damn bad ass from the few glimpses we see. THE WOLVERINE has had a tough go with the loss of Darren Aronofsky early on, but it appears that director James Mangold has paid careful attention to the task before him and I have faith he will put that unfortunate X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE mess behind us.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (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.

THE WOLVERINE slices into theaters on July 26, 2013.

maybe

The whole wolvie process is like going to your favorite steak house but when your food arrives it's completly botched up so you send it back. When it finally gets brought out it's a good meal but you just can't forget how crappy it all started out.

Holy christ this is the best analogy. This is how I would describe most comic movie franchises today. Sometimes the past mistakes are so huge, there's simply no forgetting them, regardless of how well made the latest installment is. Seriously, I'm probably going to steal this...

Much better.

Looks damn good. I don't know why the Silver Samurai look like an 8 foot tall robot, but we will see. The visual style looks great, which it did not in Origins. Jackman looks diesel as fuck. For all his skill, Wolverine isn't the strongest or most powerful, he is just the guy that just keeps coming at you and coming at you until one of you is dead (stolen from Casino). They seem to have captured that here.

The words I dislike when describing Wolverine are 'Immortality' and in other references to the movies versions of Wolverine, 'Indestructible' (which he clearly was in X3), makes me think whats the point, someone should tell Silver Samurai at the start of the movie, will save him some trouble.

Really looks great, can't wait for The Wolverine! Not convinced Mangold would reveal the Silver Samurai in any trailer. Hopefully that's a robot he created once realizing how indestructible Logan is.

If there's a Wolverine 3, I want Omega Red as the villain.

Movie looks good but I'm still mad the got so lazy with the claws. The train scene is hilarious with his claws coming out of his palms.

Terrible use of CGI here. Just look at the 3rd screencap. Nothing about this movie interests me.

Agreed, this an improvement over the original trailer. One thing they both, so far, have showed us is that it's at least gonna be a whole fucking lot better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

anyone have any ideas about why Silver Samurai appears to be a giant robot japanese version of the destroyer? He looks to be at least 10 foot, granted Hugh is kneeling, still doesnt account for the difference. especially as will Yun Lee is face to face in other shots.
