The Wolverine Official Trailer

Despite a July release date, marketing for The Wolverine has been pretty sparse with only the odd poster or screenshot being released here and there. That is until the full trailer finally surfaced today, giving us a glimpse at ninjas, samurais and Hugh Jackman in full mutant glory. It looks like a completely different prospect to the insipid X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Timeline wise, the film takes place after the original X-Men trilogy and sees Logan in present day Japan doing battle with Viper and Silver Samurai while coming to terms with his physical, emotional and mortal limits. There's also a cameo from Famke Janssen as Jean Grey, last seen being killed by Wolverine in X-Men: The Last Stand. With Jackman returning and James Mangold on directing duties, hopes are high for this one, especially as it seems like an actual story and not an excuse for random mutant cameos like Wolvie's last outing.
