The Wolverine has managed to keep Hugh Jackman atop the movie news cycle with the release of a trailer that's a colossal cluster of cool new clips.
While we just got a brief glimpse of Wolverine's next appearance in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, it seems that his next immediate outing set this summer wasn't about to end the day unnoticed. The new trailer in question actually made its debut a few weeks back at industry show, CinemaCon in Las Vegas. However, this magnificent montage of mutant mania has finally made its official debut online and it shows a somewhat different film than the full-length debut trailer we got a little over a month ago. Edited down to 57 sleek seconds, the drama of Logan's existential impasse takes a backseat to the sublime slaughteriffc force of pure, unapologetic action.
Amongst the awesome array of unloaded new footage, we see Wolverine in his true savage, scum-slaying form, starting with some hapless subway muggers who experience an upgraded Crocodile Dundee moment of their own when Logan unleashes something on them that's way worse than "a knife." Indeed, it may be the most action-filled minute of a trailer ever, culminating in our first substantive, full-bodied look at the powerful mutant villain, The Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee), who, for some mysterious reason, is FREAKING HUGE!
The Wolverine trains for an epic showdown with a giant samurai by dispatching random riffraff when it hits theaters on July 26. Check out the new trailer just below...now.
