Marvel's favorite X-Men returns to theaters this summer in "The Wolverine" starring Hugh Jackman as the mutant who is haunted by a past he can't remember, and by a lost love he can't seem to forget. Check out an all new full-length trailer above that features plenty of new footage, including his latest foes, Viper and The Silver Samurai.
In his latest adventure, Logan is living in seclusion when he is approached by a strange woman who has a message from an old acquaintance from his past. A wounded Japanese soldier that Logan once saved, who is now a rich businessman that is near death, that looks to return the favor by turning the indestructible mutant into a mere mortal.
Directed by James Mangold (Walk The Line) and co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), "The Wolverine" is primed for a fast-ball special into theaters on July 26th.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents 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. Story by Christopher McQuarrie.
