New 'Wolverine' International Trailer
A new international trailer for The Wolverine has popped up (in English, but also subtitled). Though remarkably similar in length (2:27 vs 2:33) to the trailer released last month (see "Yukio, Silver Samurai Featured in New 'Wolverine' Trailer") the content differs. There is no 30 seconds of Jean Grey flashback, and in its place is more sword-fighting action (Wolverine actually contemplates being called a ronin) and more Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. There is also a bit of a spoiler, a hint in the dialog about Shingen Yashida’s real motives for helping Wolverine cure his immortality. The Wolverine will open in theaters on July 26th.
