Every director has his or her inspirations when they approach a new project, but it's not every day that they tweet them out! James Mangold is currently hard at work directing 'The Wolverine' with Hugh Jackman, but he took a moment to share images from the ten films that influenced his take on the popular mutant superhero. For a man directing an action-packed blockbuster, they may surprise you!
Though we have no idea when we're going to get a trailer (word is late March), 'The Wolverine' will be coming to theaters this summer, and like so many event films, the movie is starting it's advertising blitz through social media. Today they released a new photo of Hugh Jackman playing the titular character.
When can we see the 'Wolverine' trailer?! If you're sharpening your claws just waiting for a tease from James Mangold's 'The Wolverine' (outside of the stills we've already seen), you're not far from having your hunger fulfilled. It seems as though Logan will be accompanying some real American heroes to the big screen in the spring.
Amidst its latest unveiling of a slew of movie images from the upcoming 2013 superhero slate, including the first official look at 'Thor: The Dark World,' Empire Magazine offered a new look at 'The Wolverine' star wearing his Sunday's finest, proving Jackman is equipped to look fierce and strike ferociously any time or place.
It might not be accurate to call the red-band trailer for 'Movie 43' "short and sweet", because while it is short, there's nothing sweet about it. It's only offers up about one minute of footage from the upcoming raunchy anthology, but it's enough to make you blush, gag or both.
Watch it after the break, knowing full well that it's NSFW.
Hugh Jackman likes to talk. He likes to talk a lot. You can't blame the guy for getting excited about his projects (he does get to play a superhero on a regular basis, after all), but he's getting close to Michael Caine levels of hype-infused bean-spilling. The Jackman "Talking Things Up Tour" continued this week, with the star answering a few questions about the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
While usually an actor in a comedy will win in this category, at the 2013 Golden Globes, it was an actor in a musical - Hugh Jackman won Best Actor, Musical or Comedy for his work in 'Les Miserables.'
'The Wolverine' is poised to set Hugh Jackman back on the path as the loner X-Men Logan before the actor reprises the same role in the now Bryan Singer-directed 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' But this is not gonna be like 'Origins,' folks. Yes, the film takes place in Japan, but aside from that, James Mangold has revealed this next chapter in the Wolverine saga will have our hero undergo more personal struggles as he traverses through this new world of the samurai.
To help you imagine this new Wolverine, a pic has been released from the film, starring our buddy once again shirtless and ready to tear his enemies to shreds.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is gonna be one hell of a superhero movie! The first installment of the 'First Class' series -- which starred Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor Xaviar), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) -- did gangbusters for fans of the comic books, but with the father of the franchise Bryan Singer on board to direct, he's combining these guys with the cast of 'X-Men' movies past to form one giant X-Men blowout. And just in case you were wondering, that also now officially includes Hugh Jackman!
