Whet your appetite for The Wolverine with this extended look at the bullet train fight sequence

07.08.2013

I want so badly for THE WOLVERINE to be awesome. The trailers have really made it look really great and basing it on the iconic story set in Japan was an inspired choice. Hopefully James Mangold and Hugh Jackman will set the summer right for superhero movies by delivering on what we have seen so far.

The good folks over at Machinima have started the countdown to THE WOLVERINE off by providing our first non-trailer clip of footage and it comes from the bullet train sequence that is being featured heavily in the marketing for the movie. Trains have made awesome settings for action setpieces for years and this could be another one to add to that list.

The special effects here look damn good. Rather than looking like green screen, you can almost feel Jackman and the stunt team were on top of a speeding train to get these shots. But action has never been a problem in these movies. What THE WOLVERINE needs to do is tell a good story that remains faithful to the comics. Where the ORIGINS movie failed was by modeling itself on the X-MEN movies and not telling a unique story about Logan. THE WOLVERINE may just fix that.

THE WOLVERINE opens in theaters on July 26th.

Still unsure

Not a very big fan of this scene.
But still, I love the character and Jackman. I just want him more badass and less fussy "I want to be human" crap. Jackman, check Riddick.

I hope this movie lands like a massive, stinky shit in a toilet bowl. I want it to be so terrible that it puts and end to all of this tiresome Jackman Wolverine crap once and for all.

I agree that if this movie isn't critically well received, they should put a halt to the solo Wolvie films. Unless someone down the road brings forth an epic script.

Mark my words...

The Wolverine will be the most disappointing movie of the summer.

We must have posted at the exact same time, was referring to BatSTUD's post.

But thats something if that movie is actually worst than the Lone Ranger.

i could do without the obnoxious score and bombastic feel to the music. it makes it too "comic booky" but the actual action was on point. I hope not all fight scenes have that sort of mission impossible/bond fight feel...this is WOLVERINE and i dont feel an animal in this scene

Dark... Gritty?

Where is the dark grittiness Jackman promised us? He gets out the claws to fight the Neos but doesn't actually stab anyone in the face...

Looks way better than in the trailers. Hopefully they get the Silver Samurai right as well.

I believe in Mangold. I really do. He's seems to be so passionate with the project, and working with Hugh Jackman. I hope this will surprise the haters.
