The full-length trailer for The Wolverine has been released.
Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine. The new movie shows the superhero weakened and fighting for his life in Japan.
Although critics were unimpressed by X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the movie was a box-office hit that took in $373 million worldwide. So, making another X-Men movie wasn’t a surprise.
The Wolverine is set after the events of 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. Wolverine is alone and vulnerable after the X-Men group of mutants have disintegrated. In the new movie, Wolverine seemed to have lost his self-healing power as part of a bigger conspiracy while he battling yakuza boss, Shingen Yashida and the Silver Samurai.
The Wolverine also stars Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. It is set to release in the UK on July 24 and July 26 in the US.
