'The Wolverine': New trailer hints Logan has real lady-trouble -- VIDEO

By the time The Wolverine opens on July 26, obsessive fans will likely be able to piece together 50 percent of the actual movie from the seemingly endless supply of teasers, trailers, and international trailers. The latest clip features some fresh scenes, starting with the 1945 atomic explosion that begins this particular chapter in Wolverine’s mythology: he shields a Japanese soldier from the blast, a soldier who ultimately becomes Shingen Yashida, the head of a huge corporate empire. Decades later, Yashida offers to return the favor, telling the immortal Logan, “Your ability to heal can be passed to another. Allow someone else to shoulder your burden.”

But what’s more exciting here are the new ladies in Logan’s life. There’s the snake-tongued succubus — “A chemist, a capitalist, a Viper” — who makes Wolverine’s flesh weak. And then there’s Yukio, the young warrior who tracks down Logan and brings him back to Japan. In the comics, Yukio was a deadly samurai who lacked mutant powers. But a brief clip in the new trailer hints that she might be an oracle of some kind: she thinks Logan’s future is not so bright.

Watch the new trailer, which finally delivers for all you fans who were disappointed that Wolverine didn’t have enough motorcycles on rooftops.

Hugh Jackman on first 'Wolverine': 'We could have done better'

When The Wolverine hits theaters July 26, Hugh Jackman’s claw-slinging hero will face a slew of deadly new enemies like the Silver Samurai and Viper. But his biggest foe might just be himself — or at least, the specter of 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which grossed an impressive $373 million worldwide but disappointed fans with its tangled storyline and cheesy FX.

Even Jackman admits the movie fell short of his expectations. READ FULL STORY

Will Hugh Jackman be replaced for more Wolverine movies?

In The Wolverine (out July 26), Hugh Jackman’s Logan struggles with his immortality — a nasty side effect of the healing factor that allows his body to keep itself in perfect form indefinitely. Of course, Jackman himself doesn’t have any such power (though his bigger-than-your-entire-body biceps might lead you to believe otherwise). And as the actor dons the sideburns for the sixth time, fans can’t help wondering if the actor might eventually be replaced by a new face the same way Andrew Garfield stepped into Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man suit, or Henry Cavill inherited Superman’s cape.

'Prisoners' trailer: Hugh Jackman goes all Liam Neeson on a suspected kidnapper -- VIDEO

It’s tough to watch the trailer for Prisoners and not immediately be reminded of Give Us All Our Daughters Back, a parody preview that aired on SNL last fall. Like that fake movie, this real one is a revenge tale that stars a murderers’ row of big-name stars — including Hugh Jackman as the devoted family man driven to the end of his rope when his daughter is kidnapped, Jake Gyllenhaal as the detective who promises to find the girl, and Viola Davis as a stoic mother and Jackman’s friend, whose child is also missing. You can predict what’s coming after about 30 seconds of footage: ominous music, Jackman screaming “WHERE’S. MY. DAUGHTER,” the supposed kidnapper (Paul Dano) sitting bound and gagged in a quiet suburban home.

Then again, considering the level of talent involved — Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, and Melissa Leo also star — Prisoners could very well be more like In the Bedroom than Taken. And give that Gyllenhaal’s character is named Detective Loki, it’s also likely that the film has a few tricks up its sleeves.

'The Wolverine' trailer: 'A man can run out of things to live for' -- VIDEO

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was the story of how our favorite clawed misanthrope got his scowl back, while this year’s The Wolverine (which mostly ignores that earlier film, like, completely) is about a man ready to give that scowl — and those claws — up. In the new trailer, we get still more insight into how terrible Logan’s life has become. He’s having nightmares of killing Jean Grey and not caring for his wildman beard. And then an “old friend” discovers a cure for his immortality: “A man can run out of things to live for.”

Psych! Logan has to fight with/against a number of rogues: Yukio, Viper, and the Silver Samurai. I kind of wish Dream-Jean was sticking around — Hemlock Grove gave Famke Janssen a nice lick of malice.

Watch the new trailer below.

The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman held a Twitter video chat today to answer fans questions about the upcoming film, in which the one-time Sexiest Man Alive talked about everything from getting into shape to working on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Here’s what you missed (complete with his killer facial hair and always-amazing accent): READ FULL STORY

'The Wolverine' CinemaCon trailer: Everyone was kung-fu fighting -- VIDEO

In the new Wolverine teaser, featuring footage that exhibitors at CinemaCon previewed last month, Hugh Jackman spends the entire time flexing, sweating, and snarling. There’s not a lot of plot to dissect, but there’s plenty of quick-cut action — and a larger reveal of the Silver Samurai! — to reassure fans who feared the new movie was going to be a Malick-ian meditation on the meaning of life for a mutant immortal.

But did anyone really think director James Mangold’s take on the lone-wolf character was going to take a turn for the existential, after seeing the first few action-packed trailers? Wolverine is as Wolverine does.

Bryan Singer tweets first image of Hugh Jackman on set of 'X-Men' -- PHOTO

Bryan Singer is in production on his actor-, mutant-, and timeline-stuffed next X-Men movie — the one that we’re assuming stacks the franchise’s various chronologies on top of one another like a layered dip — and it appears that Hugh Jackman is officially in the house. Last night, the director tweeted a photo of a tall, hairy man in a leather jacket with the caption, “Fitting.”

Apropos of nothing but context clues (tall, hairy, leather, Singer’s tag) the photo is obviously Jackman-as-scowly-Wolverine, though there’s no other information about the who, what, or when of his role. He will still be joined by Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, and Shawn Ashmore; and X-Men: Days of Future Past will still come out in 2014.

One wish: There’s no plaid under that jacket.

'The Wolverine': Check out the cool Japanese poster

WOLVERINE-SAMURAI-POSTER

Even if The Wolverine doesn’t turn out to be a good movie, the Hugh Jackman spinoff-sequel-reboot has already made a contribution to film history with a series of cool film posters destined to adorn college dorms, gym locker rooms, and the desktop wallpaper of moody 14-year-olds across the country. Now comes a snazzy new poster for the film’s Japanese release, which features Logan holding a freshly-sliced sword, claws-out. The characters on either side of his head read “Death” and “Life.” Also, the word “Samurai” is written on the poster, lest we miss the point. READ FULL STORY
