The Wolverine: Two New Promo Images from FOX

Courtesy of FOX, comes two more pics from The Wolverine.  They’re essentially trailer stills and nothing we’ve not seen before, but pretty much everything I’ve seen from this has been freaking awesome so far.  The door is open for The Wolverine to be the best comic movie of the summer.  We’ll see if it delivers when it opens July 26th.  Official synopsis below:

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.

Another day, another poster for everyone’s favorite adamantium-laced mutant.  FOX has released a new banner and The Wolverine’s international poster.  Out of all the trailers for the film, the one I still like the best is the second international trailer.  Logan will stab his way into theaters on July 26th.

The Wolverine: Jean Grey/Phoenix Poster

If it’s supposed to be a secret that Jean Grey has some role in The Wolverine, the  studio has done a rotten job of keeping it.  She’s appeared fleetingly in the trailers and now she has her own promotional poster in the same style that Logan, Yukio, Viper, and The Silver Samurai have all received.  It, like the others (which I’m reposting), are just stunning.  The film’s setting is Japan and to have these brush stroke on parchment seeming posters is just a fantastic touch.  They’re among the best posters I’ve seen in years.  I hope James Mangold can deliver a movie to match when The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.

Trailer Time: The Wolverine International Trailer #2 (2013)

The second international trailer for The Wolverine offers a lot of new footage for Logan’s second solo outing.  I’ve gone from dreading this movie to being extremely optimistic and this is the best trailer yet.  Is that the Muramasa Blade?  Great action, great Jackman, and two “Bubs” in the trailer alone.  I think the poster below may actually deliver on its claim.  The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.  The Wolverine, Logan, Wolverine, Hugh Jackman, James Mangold

I’m developing a weird optimism for this film. I really liked the second trailer, and I’ve always liked the “Wolverine as a Ronin” Japan arcs. More awesome looks at the film from Empire Magazine. The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013. Official plot synopsis below:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis 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, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
