I wonder what this means
"I swear! I was a perfect gentleman. We only snuggled."
Is that a guy with him?
That trailer was forsaking quality, really looking forward to this one
That. Was. Awesome.
Interesting trailer. I kind of like the tone. Seems to be a grounded, human film about Wolverine.
I was disappointed I didn't get more juice from this, but the trailer was solid nonetheless. A word I seem to use a lot regarding my feelings for this film. Not spectacular, awesome, epic or bada$$. Just Solid. Maybe I still have the Aronofsky blues..
I was looking again to the source material and..man.. from the trailers they are losing the focus of this story. I like the immortality issue they are always showing, add more depth to the story but... the core is the impossible relationship with mariko and the feelings/betrayal from yukio. Nothing from the trailers indicates that exist in the movie, what kind of worries me. I dont see feeling.
And what is strange is that seeing the trailers it seems like thay have a small story about an immortal man who is given mortality, thats it.
I'm sure they will give us more trailers. But with a summer full of epic and huge movies, with action, big robots and special effects, this is feeling very bland. Perhaps they have to give the audience a differente kind of trailers, with more feeling and depth!
Another thing guys, what does Jean say after "Its too late"? cant understand
I do agree that from the trailers that the story is getting very, very...buried. They decided to really hype Jean Grey over Mariko.
Jean says, you can't hide...
the action scenes will be impressive thats for sure, story i'm abit... unsure about, they don't seem to wanna give us an idea of what it is, im not sure if thats a good sign
I have a feeling this will be another one of those movies like Rise of the Planet of the Apes where the trailers aren't very impressive, but the actual movie turns out to be really, really good.
Because Jean is more marketable than Mariko. Audiences know Jean. They don't know Mariko.
I bet we saw in the trailers all there is to see of Jean in the movie.
Exactly this. The trailer is nothing more than a marketing tool, a hype machine. It's not part of the canon. It's not part of the storytelling process.
Nothing happened to his claws. They are just pointed directly at the camera at an angle where you can't see the depth.
The Jean/Logan scene looks incredible. Everything else is eh. But I still have hope that this movie will be good.
That's pretty great, I wonder how many hits to the face they had to go through though in rehearsal
Yeah a lot of takes I imagine...
Also, I would imagine that since audiences unfamiliar with the comics wouldn't know who Mariko was anyway, and the lack of decent action sequences in the first film...they want the trailers emphasize more of the combat and less of the Wolverine-gets-a-girlfriend aspect.
Honestly, I think they're just trying to appeal to men. Ladies love Hugh and will see the film regardless, so a trailer focusing on the actual story with Mariko isn't necessary... though I'd love to see one. But I think they figure guys wont go for that.
I don't think anyone should worry about Mariko's prescence in the film. We all know she's going to be Wolvie's love interest. And people who aren't familiar with the comic will come to understand who she is.
Perhaps she's really the one to more or less save Wolverine's life...what gives him something "to live for."
It's forsaking quality? Is that a good thing?
Trailer was cool but they all feel the same, and what exactly is up with that scene in every trailer where miss hydra is taking something out of her face?
My guess is that is her face. She's "shedding her skin".
New trailer looks good. One of the things I like about the mecha-Silver Samurai is Wolverine being dwarfed by an opponent, which we haven't seen much of in the films. The fight with the ninjas in the snow looks great. It would be nice to see more of Mariko though.
The new posters look great too.
