You saw the teaser trailer, now here’s the full deal:
The premise looks great and this looks to provide some serious redemption from the original standalone Wolverine film. Looks like I’ll be adding Hugh Jackman’s latest to my 2013 most anticipated list after all.
“The Wolverine” comes to theaters on July 26.
March 27, 2013
In the poster, star Hugh Jackman looks the most like Wolverine than he’s looked in numerous X-Men films and the disastrous “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Maybe it’s the hair or the claw and sword combo, but Jackman truly looks the part here.
Here’s the blink and you’ll miss it teaser trailer for what it’s worth.

I can understand the logic since more people get paid on Friday than Tuesday and most folks aren’t likely to watch a new movie until Friday anyway, but still. There’s the principle of getting rid of “new release Tuesday.” Friday’s got enough fun stuff associated with it. Anyway, here’s the two new releases to wrap your week. More

The Screen Actors Guild Awards were held last night and Ben Affleck’s “Argo” is strengthening its position as the Oscar favorite now after winning the SAG for best ensemble. This adds to “Argo’s” trophy case of AFI’s Movie of the Year; both the Golden Globes and Broadcast Film Critics Association awards for Best Picture and Best Director and the Producer Guild Award’s Best Picture. Just a month ago, it seemed to be a lock for either Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” or Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” to capture the top prize, but now “Argo” appears to have seized all the momentum on the road to the Oscars.
Here are the SAG winners and pictures from the red carpet: More

“Movie 43″ reads like a who’s who of Hollywood with A-list Oscar winning talent like Halle Berry, Terrence Howard and Kate Winslet; Oscar nominees in Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts; current hot stars like Emma Stone, Chris Pratt, Josh Duhamel, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Faris, Katrina Bowden, Kristen Bell; dependable veteran stars in Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Dennis Quaid and Gerard Butler; rising stars Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and scores of familiar faces like Leslie Bibb, Jason Sudekis, Johnny Knoxville, Justin Long and Sean William Scott.
For a film with such an all-star roster, it’s a bit surprising then that no critic has seen the movie yet and it’s opening cold (meaning no critic will see it until it opens in theaters tomorrow). And you’ve had to have been pretty diligent to find any of the aforementioned stars doing any promotional work whatsoever for the film. It’s almost like they don’t want to be associated with this at all. More

My fascination with “Les Misérables” doesn’t look to be showing any signs of ending soon.
I seem to have a new favorite song whenever I think about it. And after three viewings, it’s easy to have a different appreciation for them every time. Right now, the current favorite is “Who am I?,” which finds Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) in a moral dilemma of letting an innocent man be jailed in his place. More

I’m not a big musical fan, but ever since Tom Hooper played Pied Piper on me with his cinematic rendition of “Les Misérables,” I can’t stop thinking about it or keep the songs out of my head and I’m likely not to be the only convert once it hits theaters. More

A day after his involvement in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” was officially announced, Hugh Jackman tweeted his excitement of reuniting with his “X-Men” director Bryan Singer and working closer with the “X-Men: First Class” cast.
Jackman’s cameo was perfect in the surprisingly great “X-Men: First Class” both for in keeping with Wolverine’s attitude and showing that Jackman is grateful for the film franchise that launched his career to A-level status.
In the heavily-referenced two issue “Uncanny X-Men” story arc, in “Days of Future Past,” an older Kitty Pryde travels back in time to stop the current X-Men from allowing Senator Robert Kelly from being killed and sparking an all-out war against mutantkind. In older Kitty’s present, most of the X-Men are dead or missing and we witness a couple meet their end in the story arc including a memorable fate for Wolverine. Have to assume the same won’t happen to Jackman’s Wolverine, but I’m curious as to how this big screen version of that story will unfold when it arrives in theaters on July 18, 2014.
