20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for The Wolverine. This is the footage that was shown a few weeks ago at CinemaCon, a convention for theater owners, and it’s understandably heavy on the action. Whlie the previous trailers have played up director James Mangold’s Western approach to the story, this one is very much focused on staging The Wolverine as a big summer movie with loads of action and a badass turn from Hugh Jackman. There are bits and pieces of new footage folded in, with a brief look at Wolverine fighting Silver Samurai and Svetlana Khodchenkova’s Viper seemingly ripping her face off.
Hit the jump to watch the CinemaCon trailer. The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine opens on July 26th.
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.
