First trailer for The Wolverine: watch now

The first trailer for The Wolverine has finally been unveiled, and having waited for so long for the first footage to see the light of day, our excitement appears to have been well-founded.

The trailer introduces the audience to Wolvie’s new surroundings, as the story picks up with our hero a long way from home in Japan, and very stylish it looks too.

It seems as though romance is on the cards as Logan finds himself falling for a local girl and finally putting his obsession with Jean Grey behind him. Trouble is, his new beau is part of a powerful Yakuza crime family, with whom Logan is soon tangling.

Take a look at the new trailer, below:

UPDATE: The US version of the trailer features a fair bit of new footage. Watch it for yourself below:

It looks as though James Mangold has taken the character and made it his own, with the film seeming very much its own beast, as opposed to the latest in a long line of X-Men movies. Put simply, we can’t wait to see more.

Co-starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee and Rila Fukushima, The Wolverine will open in the UK on 26 July 2013.
