Will 'The Wolverine' TV Spot Save Its Box Office? [Trailer & Pictures]


Hugh Jackman Wolverine

The Wolverine hasn’t even hit cinemas yet, but considering the reviews – and they’re not pretty – it’s going to take some pretty ardent superhero fans to brave a trip to see Hugh Jackman’s reincarnation as the bladed yellow wolf-man.

So, in a brazen attempt to bolster those all-important box office numbers, a fancy TV spot has hit town, and you can check that mother out below. The Wolverine sees Jackman travel to a new and exotic location for the franchise reboot. Japan. There, he is offered a chance to forfeit his powers in exchange for a peaceful ‘retirement’ of sorts, but he soon finds out that’s not the case.

Why Hasn't 'The Wolverine' Caught Up With The Other Superheroes?


Hugh Jackman Wolverine

There was a time when superhero films were generally bad; it was a done deal – if you’re making a superhero film, it would either be brain at the door entertaining with no depth, or just downright awful. That’s changed in the last decade, with The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Avengers and Iron Man leading the way.

And with the resurgence of meaningful comic book movies comes great responsibility; people expect their favourite characters to leap of the page and onto cinema screens seamlessly, providing them with the same level of intimacy and entertainment as when their handheld versions. If the geeks are going to give up these superheroes to the masses, it better not be for nothing.

Hugh Jackman Stalker Hurls Razor At Him in New York Gym


Hugh Jackman Wolverine

We’ve never really had a stalker, but we always imagine it to be a little bit scary, but mostly a lovely ego boost. Hugh Jackman’s stalker/fan was just plain terrifying though, lobbing a razor at him, with pubic hair all over it…

It’s enough to make you quit the movie business, right Jackman? Well probably not. The Australian star described the incident as "frightening" and said his "primary concern" is "obviously" for his family. The woman allegedly screamed "I love you" as she chased the actor with an electric razor while he was at a New York City gym Saturday. "He was more alarmed than scared," publicist Alan Nierob told CNN on Sunday (April 14). He added that Jackman thought the woman was grabbing for a weapon. According to The New York Daily News, this woman is called Katherine Thurston and is 47 years old. She allegedly told NYPD cops a couple months ago: “I want to marry him. This is not against the law. It is not against the law to have two wives."

Reynolds To Return As Deadpool For X-men Spin-off


Ryan Reynolds MTV Wolverine

Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Wade Wilson in a Deadpool spin-off film to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it has been announced.

The wisecracking mercenary is one of the most popular characters in the X-Men comics and a potential Deadpool spin-off had been mooted when Reynolds was cast in the role.

And after Fox announced it was commencing pre-production on a sequel to box office smash X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it has also been revealed that a Deadpool film is now in active development.

Nicknamed the 'Merc with a Mouth', Deadpool was born Wade Wilson and like fellow mutant Wolverine, saw his future irrevocably changed by enrolling in the shady Weapon X military programme.

After submitting himself to Weapon X in a bid to cure his terminal cancer, Wilson emerges as Deadpool, a mentally unstable mercenary with similar healing powers to Wolverine.

According to MTV.com, the Deadpool film will be a "complete exploration of this unique character — his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth".

Writers are currently being sought for the Deadpool film with Reynolds returning to a role he was seemingly destined to play after Deadpool was once described in the comics as a cross between a "Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds".

X-Men Origins: Wolverine topped the UK box office on Tuesday, having earned over $85 million in its opening weekend in the US.
