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).
Hit the jump to take a look at the posters. The Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th.
Props to Tony Sella (Fox’s Chief Creative Officer) and Arnaldo D’Alfonso (SVP Creative) for creating a very cool poster campaign.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Wolverine:
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.
