Hugh Jackman Speaks On ‘The Wolverine’: “This Is THE Story… What I Like To Call ‘The Ultimate Wolverine’”
In a recent chat with Total Film, Hugh Jackman describes the upcoming ‘The Wolverine’ film as ‘the ultimate Wolverine.’ “This is THE story,” he told the outlet, referring to the reverence given to Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s source material. “It’s probably what I like to call ‘the ultimate Wolverine’ – not an origin story, which we’ve done, but who he is. You see him at his most vulnerable in this movie – physically and emotionally. And faced with not only his lowest point, but also this choice of embracing who he is or not.”
Alongside Hugh Jackman as the titular character, ‘The Wolverine’ stars Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Brian Tee as Norubo Mori, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. Scheduled for release on July 25th in the UK and July 26th in the US, ‘The Wolverine’ is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Knight and Day), while the script is by ‘The Usual Suspects’ scribe Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.
With the release of ‘Pacific Rim’ rapidly approaching, Legendary Pictures has revealed three new critics TV Spots for Guillermo del Toro’s action adventure movie. Set for a July 12th 2D, 3D and IMAX release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat. Undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, ‘Pacific Rim’ boasts a stellar cast of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rob Kazinsky, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Max Martini.
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the sci-fi action adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim.” When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are synched via a neural bridge, called “The Drift.” But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
D Comp has put together this great fan poster for DC Comics’ beloved Superhero team up of Batman and Superman, ‘World’s Finest.’ Given the huge success of ‘Man of Steel’ at the box office, expect to be hearing Warner Bros’ plans for the future of their DC Comics properties at Comic-Con later this month. Considering everything I’ve read from Henry Cavill, writer David Goyer and director Zack Snyder, I’d certainly expect to see a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel before we ever see a ‘Justice League’ or ‘World’s Finest’ movie on the big screen.
Warner Bros. Pictures recently announced that the self-contained world of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy will be left behind, and Zack Snyder’s Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel,’ will begin to open up a DC Movie Universe. Earlier this week Christian Bale reiterated that he won’t be reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the future DC Movie Universe. “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,” says Bale. “Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”
Speaking to Schmoes Know, ‘Jurassic Park 4′ helmer Colin Trevorrow confirmed that the fourth film in the franchise won’t be a complete reboot of the series. “We don’t want to create a new scoop here, but we definitely want to honour what came before us.” The director added that he is having an “incredible” experience working with producer Steven Spielberg – who directed the first two ‘Jurassic Park’ movies – on the project, “[He] has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It’s not like getting notes from a studio executive, it’s really just trying to crack this and make it the best it can be.”
On the pressure of making another ‘Jurassic Park,’ the filmmaker added, “We are very aware of how much a certain generation especially cares about this movie and we talk about it all the time and really the conversation is – it’s not about us, it’s not about our careers, it’s how do we make something that can stand with the first one.”
New Trailer & 6 Featurettes For Bong Joon-Ho’s ‘Snowpiercer’ – Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell & Tilda Swinton
This new trailer and selection of featurettes have arrived online for ‘Snowpiercer,’ the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic drama by writer/director Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother) and producer Chan wook-Park (Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance). The film is described as ”set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.”
While there’s currently no release date set for ‘Snowpiercer,’ it is expected that The Weinstein Company will be releasing the film later this year. ’Snowpiercer’ stars Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Chris Evans, John Hurt, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Ko Asung, Alison Pill, Ewan Bremner, Octavia Spencer and Song Kang-ho – who previously starred in Bong Joon-ho’s equally fantastic ‘The Host’ and ‘Memories Of Murder.’ Marking Bong’s English language debut, ‘Snowpiercer’ is based on a French graphic novel titled ‘Le Transperceneige.’ All signs point towards this being a gem!
