In a clear sign of growing interest, the official Facebook page for The Wolverine has been adding fans at a rapid pace. The sequel tacked on another 82,042 likes this past weekend, pushing its total to nearly 1.6 million. Only Despicable Me 2 managed to add more likes over the weekend.

Oh dear. Now I'm gonna run out of SHH file size space for my avatar animation. Cut out frames of animation to fit the limit.

Yay more new artwork!

Really liked the artwork but still overall mediocre marketing. Has anyone seen the trailer on movie theatres? I know social networks are important, but it appears like the movie got no budget for marketing. I´m still awaiting the marketing bombing that Mangold warned us.

They didn't show a trailer for it before Man of Steel.

The theater I was at did have the Wolverine ink poster on a wall though. The company knows they're pretty popular in their own way if they keep getting stolen.

These posters are FANTASTIC! Kudos to the Fox graphic design department for doing something right for a change with the creative for this movie.

I've seen the trailer in front of Iron Man 3 and World War Z.

These are all at my theater right now:

We also have a Red Robin near the movie theater, and when I went there after seeing Man of Steel, they were selling these:



And when you buy one of those, you get a code emailed to you to use on Fandango for a ticket to the movie. (I've got mine!)

There were ads for their Wolverine promo all around the restaurant, and all of the waiters/waitresses were wearing "The Wolverine" t-shirts.

‘The Wolverine’ Footage Reaction: James Mangold Aims to Craft an Emotionally Complex X-Men Movie

http://www.slashfilm.com/the-wolveri...x-x-men-movie/

Quote:
In April, 20th Century Fox invited /Film to speak with the director and see the first 20 minutes of The Wolverine. After watching the footage, it’s pretty obvious Mangold is being incredibly serious. The first reel of the film has some big set pieces, but also sets up what may be a surprisingly complex movie dealing with topics like immortality and genocide. It’s a film he hopes will redeem the character from X-Men Origins: Wolverine and maybe even set the stage for the bigger Fox Marvel Universe, even though it’s very much a standalone story.

Below, watch a non-spoiler video blog discussing the first 20 minutes of the film and read a bit more about Mangold’s intentions with The Wolverine from our in-depth interview.

Here’s me and Ben Pearson from FirstShowing discussing the first 20 minutes of The Wolverine, an experience I quite enjoyed and which upped my anticipation for the film considerably. We don’t talk about any plot points.

James Mangold Talks Genre, Themes and Reality of 'The Wolverine'

http://www.firstshowing.net/2013/jam...the-wolverine/

Quote:
In the middle of April, I was invited to join a few other bloggers on a visit to the 20th Century Fox lot to check out the edit bay of James Mangold's upcoming superhero movie The Wolverine. But we ended up with something way cooler: Mangold himself took us to a private theater on to show us the first 20 minutes of the film, and then he spoke with us for a solid half hour about everything Wolverine fans could want to hear. While the (still unfinished) footage didn't quite convince me, Mangold's passionate description of his take on Logan definitely has me excited to see The Wolverine when it hits theaters next month.

The Wolverine: Footage Screened and James Mangold Interview
What did we see from the upcoming Marvel movie?

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/...gold-interview

Quote:
IGN was among a handful of outlets this past April to visit the editing bay of The Wolverine and screen roughly 15 minutes of footage from the film and chat with the Marvel-Fox movie's director, James Mangold.

Please be advised that this article contains some SPOILERS, but nothing more than have been revealed in the film's trailers if you've watched them.

Mangold screened a good chunk of the first act for the press (as well as a good portion of the Japanese bullet train battle scene) and the bottom line is that The Wolverine plays like a much different film than either X-Men Origins: Wolverine or the X-Men movies.

We've got just over a month before James Mangold's The Wolverine hits theaters, marking leading man Hugh Jackman's sixth big screen appearance as the adamantium-laced mutant. Back in April, ComingSoon.net had the pleasure of taking an early look at the project in Mangold's bungalow editing bay on the 20th Century Fox lot. In addition to previewing roughly 20 minutes of footage, Mangold sat down for a lengthy conversation about what he hopes to bring to the expanded X-Men cinematic universe.

Another IGN quote: "Even though we've only seen a small potion of the final film, that alone was already leagues better than either X-Men Origins: Wolverine or X-Men: The Last Stand."

Color me officially "pumped for The Wolverine" film now!!

Mangold: The reason that I hesitate is that I don’t want to give away the surprise, but more to that the movie is a mystery. The movie itself is kind of a labyrinth. There’s so many kinds of ways to tell a story. If you don’t just kind of have a very clear bad guy who, as I said, has an agenda to destroy x, then your story operates more from ground level with Logan figuring out what’s going on. And so very much, whether you’re talking about Viper or Mariko or Yukio or Yashida or Shingen or Noburo, you’re trying to figure out where they all stand. Everyone’s got secrets and everyone’s got surprises, not just Viper. The joy of the film to me is trying to figure out, like Logan is, you land in this Oz, you don’t really have your feet planted on the ground, you don’t know the way things operate here and you don’t know the language. So there’s a level where the interesting quality of the movie is watching him with us unpeel what the hell is going on.

Mangold said something briefly similar in the video interview from last year on The Wolverine movie website.

I really like the posters, FOX did a great job with them. They are unique for a Comic Book movie.

Agreed, all the other Marvel posters have been pretty much the same style from Ironman to the Avengers. Not even tried anything different.
