With James Mangold’s The Wolverine opening this weekend, I was recently able to interview the cast in New York City.  Starring Hugh Jackman in the title role, The Wolverine tracks Logan as he reunites with faces from his past while grappling with his immortality.  Featuring a fantastic international cast, The Wolverine also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Svetlana Khodchenkova and Tao Okamoto.  For more on the film, watch these clips or check out all our previous coverage.

During my video interview with Janssen, she talked about when she first heard how important her role would be in the sequel, the marketing campaign, working with Mangold and Jackman, how it doesn’t feel like a comic book movie, the Taken series (including Taken 3), and other future projects like A Fighting Man, Hemlock Grove season 2, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
