A new Japanese trailer for director James Mangoldâ€™s sequel The Wolverine has made its way online.Â The film findsÂ Hugh Jackmanâ€™s titular character isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis â€śin a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.â€ťÂ There are a few bits of new footage to be found in this trailer, including an increased focus on Wolverineâ€™s possible mortality in the face of danger.Â The action sequences continue to look impressive, and Iâ€™m hoping the reliance on CG is minimal since the most promising stuff in all of the trailers weâ€™ve seen thus far is the tight, hand-to-hand combat scenes.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer.Â The film also starsÂ Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao OkamotoÂ andÂ Svetlana Khodchenkova.Â Â The WolverineÂ opens on July 26th.

Hereâ€™s the official synopsis forÂ 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 moreÂ powerfulÂ than we have ever seen him before.
