by MJ Krey (@mjkrey)
The international trailer for The Wolverine has hit the internet.
Written by Mark Bomback (Total Recall), Scott Frank (Minority Report), and Christopher McQuarrie (Jack the Giant Slayer), it’s based on Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s mini-series “Wolverine” from the eighties.
Released in 1982, the original four-issue comic series envisioned Wolverine as a samurai without a master, who travels to Japan to be with his one true love.
In the movie, Logan is lured to modern-day Tokyo by the man who was saved by the titular hero in a World War II prison camp. For repayment, the mysterious man makes him an offer he can’t refuse: to make The Wolverine mortal again.
The film is directed by James Mangold, who also helmed 3:10 to Yuma, Cop Land, and Kate and Leopold.
The Wolverine arrives in U.S. theaters July 26th.
