New The Wolverine Trailer Claws its Way Online One Ninja at a Time

I gotta say, though she only has a couple of scenes in this new trailer for James Mangold’s “The Wolverine”, the sword-slinging Yukio (played by Rila Fukushima in the upcoming movie) sure stands out. I think most people are a bit disappointed by the Silver Samurai, though, who looks more like a giant mecha than a dude in a Samurai outfit with a jazzed ups word. Plus, more Jean Grey! (Though this time it looks like a dream.)

Check out the new trailer for “The Wolverine”. It’s got a few new footage here and there, plus Viper doing her Viper thing. Sexy! (If, you know, you like that sort of stuff.)

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.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, and Hal Yamanouchi.

Ending it all this July 26, 2013.
