A new trailer for James Mangold’s The Wolverine is now available online.
Although the first US trailer for the upcoming superhero flick left much to be desired, the final clip is definitely an improvement. However, those who don’t want to know anything about Jean Grey’s appearance in the flick might want to skip this one altogether.
Famke Janssen’s involvement with the flick is no secret. However, the final Wolverine trailer might show fans a little too much about her role in the movie. Previews are often notorious for giving away major plot points, so proceed with caution if you value cinematic surprises.
The new trailer also spends more time developing the story, which centers around Wolverine’s journey to Japan. After meeting up with an old friend, he is given a chance to become mortal once again. While the superhero appears to spend a fair amount of time brooding, it’s also clear that the film contains several potentially amazing set pieces.
The coolest part of the clip: A glimpse of the showdown between Wolverine and Silver Samurai.
Here’s how Marvel officially describes the flick:
“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.”
If you missed it the first time around, then be sure to check out the recently-release Japanese trailer. In this writer’s humble opinion, it’s still the strongest of the bunch.
In addition to Hugh Jackman, the movie stars Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, and Brian Tee.
Director James Mangold’s The Wolverine is slated to arrive in the middle of the busy summer movie season. The flick will hit theaters on July 26.
