New Wolverine CinemaCon Footage Hits
Logan runs a lot
A couple of weeks ago, when 20th Century Fox was making its big pitch to cinema chain owners and other business types at CinemaCon, we were a little surprised not to see more of The Wolverine, which finds James Mangold directing the latest cinematic adventure for Hugh Jackman’s hairy hero. But there was a quick footage reel, largely culled from trailers but also featuring some new material, and it’s now officially online via US chain AMC Theatres. Check it out…
The Wolverine finds Logan looking to put to rest the ghosts of his past, and travelling to Japan at the behest of someone he saved years ago. Naturally, he can’t just have a quiet time scarfing down sushi and admiring the landscape, but instead ends up clashing with the Yashida crime family on behalf of love interest Mariko (Tao Okamoto).
With a script featuring contributions from Mangold, Christopher McQuarrie, Mark Bomback and Scott Frank, it's all based on the classic Frank Miller/Chris Claremont comic run, and also stars Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Rila Fukushima, Brian Tee and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine hits UK cinemas on July 26. The latest trailer is below, and you can also find our footage breakdown right here.
