A Ronin Story- The Wolverine Featurette

A short featurette about Hugh Jackman’s 6th* reprisal of The Wolverine character gives us a peak into the story and some new images that weren’t in the trailer.

It really looks like they went back to what audiences like about the character to make this movie and I never thought i would be so psyched to see this.

 

Synopsis:
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 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.

*Cameo’s included

Thw Wolverine is out in theaters 25th July 2013.

The Wolverine New Stills and Trailer

We hadn’t had a chance to post The Wolverine’s new trailer that got posted last week but since we received some new images, we didn’t want to let go of the opportunity.

Looking like a vast improvement than the X-men Origins, the introductory voice over does have a bit of Highlander to it, complaining about immortality and the burden it is.

Some of the CGI still looks iffy to me even more so in the trailer but I think Jackman really does bring it this time and the Japanese setting is definitely a fan favorite.

The Wolverine- New Images

Being a huge fan of the X-men comics as well as Hugh Jackman as an actor, his 2009 solo outing X-Men Origins: Wolverine was such a disspointing movie that I quite watching anything with Jackman in it (except for Real Steel but I choose to forget that).

Having learned their lesson and Jackman showing some real affection for the character, they have roped in James Mangold for the sequel as well as set in fan favorite Japan- based adventrues of Logan.

Releasing this summer, we have some exclusive images and it already looks better than anything we saw before, although the CGI claws still look a bit iffy!

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee and Tao Okamoto

The Flowers of War Trailer

Remember last year when Christian Bale almost got arrested in China for visiting blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng, who had been under house arrest for more than 15 months in his village at that time? Well he was actually in China at that moment shooting The Flowers of War for director Zhang Yimou. The movie was released last year in some countries and festivals and has garnered some acclaim and is now finally seeing a UK Release (probably timed with that other Bale release)

Shot beautifully but dealing with a really horrific chapter of history, we’ll get to see another side of Bale.

The story is according to imdb:

“A Westerner finds refuge with a group of women in a church during Japan’s rape of Nanking in 1937. Posing as a priest, he attempts to lead the women to safety”

The trailer looks like the movie is shot on a really grand scale but you’ll need guts to probably finish the movie as it deals with some real horror and although some might hope Bale will just suit up and solve problems with batarangs, I don’t think it will be happening. (actually just reading up about The Rape of Nanking on wikipedia, I’m feeling bad making jokes about it)

The movie releases exclusively in Empire Cinemas in theaters 3 August and surprisingly releases on DVD only 3 days after that on the 6th.

The Flowers Of War is showing exclusively at Empire Cinemas from August 3rd 2012. For information and to book tickets visit www.EmpireCinemas.co.uk or call 08 714 714 714.
