The Silver Samurai gets plenty of screentime in the new action-packed teaser for “The Wolverine.” The video was originally shown at CinemaCon, and now has been released online for all of us to obsess over.
The video is concise and to the point, and teases without giving too much away. We wish more studios would take a page out of this book, because all we really need is to be reminded that the Wolverine is “the fugitive,” “the survivor” and “the legend” to remember why we love this character so much to begin with.
This summer is loaded with plenty of exciting comic book movie adaptations, and it remains to be seen how well “The Wolverine” fares against its competition. Buzz seems to be building for the flick, so hopefully it will do well. All Fox needs to do is have a couple more teasers like this and we can’t imagine how everyone wouldn’t be on board.
Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee and Tao Okamoto. It’s due in theaters on July 26, 2013. Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis 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, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
