Back in September we got our first look at the first promo photo from the forthcoming sequel/prequel/whatever film The Wolverine, which stars Hugh Jackman as the titular X-Men character. In October, we got to check out the film’s first teaser poster. Today we get to check out a just-released motion poster that features a sword-wielding Wolverine crouched in a Batman-like pose high above Tokyo, Japan. As you can see below, the rain is falling all around and, well, as with all motion posters, it really needs to be seen to be fully enjoyed. Check it out.
For those of you who prefer the more traditional (and boring) static poster artwork, here you go:
As far as motion posters go, this one is pretty standard. Yes, there is movement and yes there is sound but it’s not all that exciting. Still, the simplicity may be the intended feel. I am a huge fan of motion posters and greatly prefer them (even the tamer ones) over static images, especially when viewed online. I honestly can’t say I’m all that excited for another Wolverine movie (the last one wasn’t all that good) but I’m willing to keep an open mind. What do y’all think? Any Wolverine fans out there excited to see this movie?
