A new movie poster for The Wolverine has been released, however I’m still on the fence about this one. It showcases Logan with his claws out, yet a sword in his hand. At a distance, this is reminiscent of older posters that invoke that ‘Samurai’ or long warrior feeling, except that once one gets up close, the nuances in it become more apparent. The claws are fuzzy and located in an awkward position, the dual color schemes clash, rather than combine the image, and it just leaves much to be desired from Wolverine’s next outing. I can’t read japanese either, so hopefully it says something more badass than just “Wolverine” and “Honor.” How do you feel about the latest poster?
Releasing in 3D and 2D theaters on July 26, the next X-men related film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.
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.
