When i watched the trailer again, I took a hard look at what Jean was wearing...some kind of white tank top or something. Its gotta be new footage Famke shot. I don't see how it could have been recycled footage.

It's not recycled. Pretty sure rumours were reporting it as though she filmed scenes for it. Plus you would definitely be able to tell by looking at Hugh's face. He still looks the part, but there's a noticeable difference between how he looked in the original trilogy and how he looks now in The Wolverine (which would be due to both him having more bulk due to working out and being a bit older).

Okay, I always liked that artist, but why does the dude always draw such weird feet? Seriously, look at Wolverine's feet in that picture, they're teensy.

And as far as the bullet train thing goes, the jury is still out for me. It struck me as a little on the cheesy side, but I can't judge until I've seen the whole thing. I mean, I'm not unused to overblown action, and while I've always preferred the fights that rely on big emotion and not big effects, if it's handled well I won't mind.

The reasons I have for not liking the bullet train stuff in the trailer is that it both looks and feels out of place. In context it's hokey.

In itself it doesn't look all bad though. Couldn't bothered less by questionable physics in a movie like this. And this Wolverine roaring too much? One must really hate Wolvie in the 90s cartoon then.

There are good martial arts fights, and bad martial arts fights. I like good ones. This movie isn't suppose to be part parody like Kill Bill. I thought this was suppose to be serious business?

My question is why is that bullet train going full speed in the middle of a city? You can clearly see a city scape as they're passing. Unless they're doing a Doc Ock/Ra's Al Ghul thing where the train is out of control then it makes no sense. And if they are doing that well....HEY IT'S BEEN DONE BEFORE.
I thought he was simply letting the train bring his opponent to him. Like he doesn't really jump forward, he jumps up, he is suspended in air and his opponent is coming right towards him because he is still connected to the train.

The concept is fine. The execution is lacking imo.

And that is the point. The way production has been talking, you would think that this will be a serious, more thoughtful take on the character. And then this trailer comes out and it doesn't really convey that.

Singer did that with the first two X-Men films. Vaughn did it with First Class, even with the ridiculous Beast suit. Look at most of the MCU or Nolan's Batman. Man of Steel is about an alien who comes to Earth as a baby and because of our Sun can shoot heat from his eyes and fly. Yet the trailers seem to indicate that that hasn't stopped them from giving weight to the character.

If you see the material as foolish you can never write it with any real conviction.

Spotted this at the movie theater today:



Oddly enough, this space was last occupied by a Les Miserables poster.

I don't take any of those particularly seriously either. Or judge any movie as a whole based on a two-minute trailer.

You seem to have been fooled into thinking this was a David Cronenberg film or something.

At any rate, I suggest waiting until you've seen more than two minutes of quick cuts before you start judging the agenda of the production crew, or proclaiming the lack of quality.

To you, which is fair enough that's what you take from it. That's your right, but that doesn't translate to 'what everyone else thinks' or 'what is'. Plenty of people have no problem with the Yukio moment and many think The Wolverine looks fairly serious.

Btw, I'm not having a go. I just think the wording of your posts are giving off the wrong impression.

Frankly, I was thrilled at how often Wolverine turned up shirtless in that trailer.

Now, who comes up with Wolverine's evil twin and names him Albert? Presuming the double was the villian of course.

Serious, sincere, however you put it, those films are genuinely compelling because they do not just dismiss their characters and stories because they are from comic books. They aren't simply dismissed as not serious because of the the characters' origins.

And I am not judge the movie on a two-minute trailer. But the footage is from the film. Is it not an indication of some sort of direction?

There was a time Darren Aronofsky was attached. Perhaps this trailer makes it more understandable why he moved on.

And I am talking the general quality of the X-Men franchise overall. Any success to to have been in spite of FOX. Even the successful films were clearly hampered, which just makes things all the more annoying. I love First Class, and yet you see its potential being wasted throughout.

I think he named himself Albert, or maybe Elsie Dee called him that, she's the little girl holding onto Wolverine's leg, except she's actually a robot full of explosives. Those Albert and Elsie Dee issues were among the first Wolverine comics I read, not exactly an auspicious start.
