New Behind The Scenes Production Tweet From THE WOLVERINE
Production tweets from comic book movie directors are all the rage these days. Yesterday, it was Bryan Singer teasing Days of Future Past and today we have production tweets from James Mangold's The Wolverine.
The trailer reveals that a lot of action takes place at the Yashida Compound, which is a slight departure from the original story told by comic book writer Chris Claremont. The trailer revealed that the Compound is very large and also has a section comprised entirely of scientific laboratories.
An interesting tweet, as we have three characters listed as playing Yashida, Yamanouchi, Hiroyuki Sanada and Ken Yamamura. We know there's a flashback involved with Wolverine and Yashida but why three actors to play the same character? Examining the actors, there appears to be an elderly, middle-aged and young Yashida in the film.
For those of you really into movie scores, were you keen on the score used in the first trailer?
Spinning out of the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Logan (Hugh Jackman) travels to Japan where he falls for the beautiful Mariko Yashida (Tao Okamoto) to the grave displeasure of her father Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi) and her half-brother, the fearsome Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee). But this isn't Logan's first trip to the Land of the Rising Sun or his first encounter with the Yashida clan. Based on a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall )and the comic book by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont.
