'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

The first full 'Wolverine' trailers hit, and Wolverine is mad in both -- VIDEO

The Wolverine continues its promotional roll-out with the double-debut of its first trailers, one domestic and one international. There’s plenty of overlap between the two of them, though the latter is moodier and more clear about the plot — which seems to be: Logan (Hugh Jackman) doesn’t want to be the Wolverine any more until he does, at the offer of possible humanity. But watch out for ninjas! A woman also pulls off her face at the cheekbones.

Stay tuned for Darren Franich’s deep dive later in the day.

Casting Net: Hugh Jackman attached to 'Six Years'; Plus, Tom Cruise and 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E', Nick Jonas, Sarah Silverman, more

• Hugh Jackman is attached to star in an adaptation of mystery and thriller author Harlan Coben’s upcoming novel Six Years. The story is about Jake Fisher who loses his love to another man. When Fisher attends the other man’s funeral to see his long-lost love six years later, he realizes that the widow is not the same woman, and as a result, he begins to doubt everything. It’s still very early in the process — Coben’s novel has yet to be released (out March 19), and there is currently no director or screenwriter attached. Guillaume Canet adapted the Coben triller Tell No One for the big screen. As for Jackman, the Oscar-nominated actor can be seen next in The Wolverine, in theaters July 26. [THR]

• Tom Cruise is in early talks to star in Warner Bros. adaptation of the 1960s NBC series Man from U.N.C.L.E, about a pair of secret agents who work for the international agency U.N.C.L.E, or, United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Guy Ritchie is currently attached to direct. The film adaptation has been in the works for years. At one point, Steven Soderbergh was attached to direct George Clooney, and when Clooney had to drop out due to an injury, basically every current Hollywood dreamboat was considered for the role, including Ryan Gosling, Jon Hamm, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, and Michael Fassbender.  [Deadline]
