Wolverine fights ninjas + things blow up in explosive new trailer

Some new footage from James Mangold’s The Wolverine has been released as part of a wild new trailer, which shows off some great ninja fights and explosive new set pieces.

The darker tone that Mangold is shooting for definitely comes through, and despite the more intimate story, there definitely looks to be more than enough huge CGI insanity to keep the fanboys drooling. Logan's adventure into Japan looks like it could be one of the best X-Men movies yet.

More than anything, if he can pull it off, the Wolverine-claws-vs.-samurai-swords fights could make this movie a true classic. There’s so much potential there for a unique style of action, coupled with the fish-out-of-water story, that this will definitely be the biggest departure ever for an X-Men film.

Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:


The Wolverine opens July 26.
