New Featurette for THE WOLVERINE: “Harada” (a.k.a. The Silver Samurai)

by     Posted 1 year, 42 days ago

Yesterday, we got a featurette for Logan (Hugh Jackman) for The Wolverine, and now we have one for “Harada” (Will Yun Lee).  Harada, also known as “The Silver Samurai” in the comics, describes his character as the leader of a clan of “super-ninjas” whose sole purpose is to defend Mariko (Tao Okamoto).  His character is also skilled at parkour and archery, and I suppose you have to beef-up anyone without mutant powers if they’re going to even have a chance against Wolverine, although he loses his healing powers at some point in the story.  We know that the Silver Samurai is in the movie, but this featurette doesn’t divulge any details on that character, so it’s possible that he’s unrelated to Harada (but I wouldn’t count on it).

As part of Fox’s marketing campaign for The Wolverine, the studio has been releasing some pretty gorgeous sumi-e character posters for the film.  We’ve already seen stylish one-sheets for many of the principal characters, but yesterday we shared the sumi-e poster for Jean Grey and today we’ve been provided with three more posters to run alongside Steve’s editing room interview with director James Mangold.  These new posters focus on the characters of Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada), Mariko (Tao Okamoto), and Harada (Will Yun Lee).

New International Trailer for THE WOLVERINE Featuring New Footage Including More Viper and Silver Samurai

A new international trailer has been released for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine.  The film finds Hugh Jackman’s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.  Even though this trailer goes further than the previous ones in showing the details of the plot, it’s also my favorite trailer thus far.  It shows off Wolverine being a bad-ass, but also retains some fun comic-book elements like Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), who has a much bigger role than I suspected, and the gigantic Silver Samurai who comes down like a boss fight.  Hopefully, Mangold has found the right balance between Wolverine’s serious side and the fun comic book elements of good summer blockbuster.

A new trailer for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine has gone online.  The film finds Hugh Jackman’s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”  This new trailer goes heavy on the drama by showing Logan’s guilt over killing Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) in X-Men: The Last Stand, and why he would consider getting rid of his powers.  This trailer also shows off the strange mix of ancient Japanese warriors and hi-tech sci-fi; a combination that is best represented by the hulking Silver Samurai.  But if Wolverine can shield a guy from what appears to be a nuclear blast, then a giant robot samurai shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

New Japanese Trailer for THE WOLVERINE

A new Japanese trailer for director James Mangold’s sequel The Wolverine has made its way online.  The film finds Hugh Jackman’s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”  There are a few bits of new footage to be found in this trailer, including an increased focus on Wolverine’s possible mortality in the face of danger.  The action sequences continue to look impressive, and I’m hoping the reliance on CG is minimal since the most promising stuff in all of the trailers we’ve seen thus far is the tight, hand-to-hand combat scenes.

20th Century Fox has released a batch of high-resolution images from director James Mangold’s upcoming sequel The Wolverine.  The film finds Hugh Jackman’s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”  We recently got a look at the character in action by way of two trailers, but these images give us a closer (and clearer) look at the environment that Mangold has cooked up for the Japan-set story.  We’ve seen a few of these images before in lower resolution versions, but there are also some new peeks at The Wolverine in action, including a rather impressive chain wrangling.

Domestic Trailer for THE WOLVERINE

The international trailer for director James Mangold’s sequel The Wolverine was released about a half-hour ago, and now the domestic version is online.  The film finds Hugh Jackman’s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”  The U.S. trailer contains new footage, and while I think the international version is slightly better, both trailers hammer home the “life-or-death battle”. The big difference is that the U.S. version reveals the man offering Wolverine a chance at mortality.

A new international trailer for director James Mangold’s The Wolverine has been released online. The upcoming film follows the events of X-Men: The Last Stand where a guilt-ridden Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) doesn’t want to live with the curse of immortality, so he’s offered the chance to lose it thanks to a mysterious benefactor.  I really like this premise, although it reminds me a little of this comedy video.  Mangold looks like he’s found a nice balance between action and drama, and I’m eager to see where this story goes.

New set photos for James Mangold’s The Wolverine, Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake and Dean Parisot’s Red 2 have emerged today.  From Wolvie, we don’t get more shots of star Hugh Jackman, but we get a glimpse of Silver Samurai and of the actor playing him (Will Yun Lee).  There’s also a stuntman on hand to unleash the first look at Logan’s claws in action.  The Oldboy images put star Josh Brolin front and center and shirtless for the most part.  Red 2 shows off previous cast members Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker as well as new additions, Catherine Zeta-Jones and David Thewlis.  Pay special attention to Malkovich’s insane attire (he’s fabulous).

The Wolverine bows on July 26th, 2013. Lee’s Oldboy, also starring Samuel L. Jackson and Elizabeth Olsen, opens sometime next year. Red 2 is slated for an August 2nd, 2013 release.  Hit the jump to see the set photos. [Update: We've removed the unofficial images.]

While these might not be the most flattering set photos of Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, fans couldn’t care less.  We already brought you some concept art and set photos from a “Japanese prisoner of war camp,” but now we have some images from the set in the “Canadian Rockies.”  While these photos are actually from the shoot taking place in Australia, it’s been suggested that The Wolverine is following Frank Miller’s early storyline which puts the eventual X-Man in the frozen north tracking a man-eating Grizzly Bear.  Hit the jump to see the behind-the-scenes shots.
