'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


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]


James Mangold tweets 10 films that influenced 'The Wolverine'


Director James Mangold took to Twitter over the weekend to play a little game with his followers. “I’m posting images from films that inspired/influenced THE WOLVERINE,” he tweeted. “Name the movies. Even better, go see them.” The director then posted ten images from an intriguing assortment of films. Go check out his Twitter feed and see how many you can name. (8-10, you’re a film stud; 5-7, you should probably consider restarting your Netflix DVD subscription; less than 5, you should stop watching so much TV.) READ FULL STORY

The internet has been buzzing over Days of Future Past, the 2014 X-Men prequel/sequel/reunion which is just one Dwayne Johnson casting rumor away from breaking the internet. (For what it’s worth, he would clearly play Strong Guy.) But don’t forget about The Wolverine, the spinoff/reboot/kinda-sequel to X3 which hits theaters this summer. The film’s Twitter feed just released an evocative shot of Hugh Jackman’s beloved adamantium-boned Canadian mutant — check it out below: READ FULL STORY
