Last week, we showed you a new image of Golden Globe-winner Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine. Today, a hi-res version of the image has been released. In high-resolution, you can really feel the berserker rage that simply doesn’t come across in a 770×470 image. Naturally, this image doesn’t tell us anything about the movie we don’t already know (Wolverine is angry, the film takes place in Japan, etc.), but it’s still nice to get a look at the flick.
Hit the jump to check out the hi-res image. The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine opens in 3D 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.
