The Wolverine has unleashed another beserker-rage-rocking trailer. Chock full of new unmitigated violence focusing on Wolverine fighting and killing stuff, the underlying drama still manages to push through the gratuitous gall.
It seems that Wolverine has been spending his time camping in the wilderness with a big bushy beard (and possibly drinking his own pee) looking like some kind of tortured, but more handsome Grizzly Adams. Unfortunately, even there, he can't escape from constant torturous dreams about the events which occurred in this film's chronological predecessor, X-Men: The Last Stand. (Yeah, we're all still trying to get over that movie.) For Logan, these dreams focus on his late would-be love, Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) who he had to "put down" like some kind of Dark Phoenix Old Yeller in the aforementioned franchise debaser of a film. Indeed, the beautiful Jean seems to be the focus of his dreams, which are wet for a different reason these days: From the blood that he shed.
The mourning and regret over that incident seems to have left our hero willing to embrace the end, in spite of his indestructible skeleton and mutant healing powers saying otherwise. (Of course, he could always just toss himself into a volcano, but whatever.) Thankfully (maybe), a man whose life he saved ages ago could have a way to undo nature's ultimate buff and let him finally rest. Of course, it's never that simple and it seems that Logan soon finds himself embroiled amongst an intricate drama involving another one of his former loves, Mariko Yashida (Tao Okamoto) involving ninjas, a weirdish sexy assassin, arranged marriages with gangsters, sultry serpentine mutant vixens, and his classic comic book nemesis, The Silver Samurai...who, for some unknown reason, is FREAKING HUGE.
The Wolverine makes the most out of eternity when it hits theaters on July 26.
