Let’s face it: at this point if you’re not jazzed up to see “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, you’re just not a comic book fan. Sure, there have been some negative buzz surrounding the film (okay, a lot of negative buzz), but it’s still a big-screen, Hollywood movie (with a mega Hollywood budget!) movie starring everyone’s favorite feral Canucklehead. And yeah, so maybe Hugh Jackman is perhaps a tad too tall, thus taking away that aspect of Wolverine that was so cool — he’s shorter than your kid, but he’s infinitely more dangerous! — but it’s still friggin Wolverine on the big screen, claws and all. Anyways, here’s the latest trailer for the movie.
Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.
Gavin Hood directs a roster of muties that includes Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Liev Schreiber, Dominic Monaghan, Lynn Collins, Danny Huston, Daniel Henney, Taylor Kitsch, Kevin Durand, and Scott Adkins.
