AMC Theaters has released the exclusive CinemaCon footage for James Mangold’s “The Wolverine”. It’s only a minute long, but oh my, is it ever packed with some crazy ass looking stuff, not least of which is your first official look (at least, I think it is) at the (from the looks of it, humongous) Silver Samurai, gleaming silver armor and all. And did a bunch of ninjas just like stabbed ol Logan with a bunch of spiky things? DAMN.

Check it out, check it outers.

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.

“The Wolverine” stars Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, and Hal Yamanouchi.

Going Japanese this July 25, 2013.

  • Juggernaut

    I was actually optomistic about this. Now, not so much.

    • W.A.S

      Why is that?

        Looks like there will be too many liberties taken for my taste.

        • Dedpool

          See but what were you expecting? Their universe is already so far gone from the source that liberties is pretty much all they have, except for the occaisional nod. I’m still on board.
