pretty good. Fox is doing a really good job with the promotional pics and posters this time. Good move

Agreed. The promotional material has been outstanding. Can't say the same for Marvel Studios. Aside from concept/merchandise artwork, the promotional stuff (Posters, etc) have been lackluster. DC did an okay job with with Man of Steel but this along with Origins.... The phtoographer and graphic designers actually gave a shit... I'll be picking up as many posters for this as possible, especially the stylized japanese paintbrush poster. That one is a beaut! And this one is very organic looking as well.

Would've been rad if Silver Samurai was reflected in that sword instead.

@TheGambitFreak
Badass! diggin' the claws.

LOL! I've been growing out my hair and chops for 2 months just for this midnight release even though I'm 6'4 and look more so like Peter Rasputin. I'm eagerly awaiting the MPAA's rating of this mofo.

This movie is looking more and more impressive, loving the promo pics and its keeping in line with the japanesse vibe.

This movie may not generate huge box office profits like dark knight rises or avengers but if its stay true to the comic it will be a success.

Itll be a fantastic filmbo doubt
mgeoff88 - 7/4/2013, 4:41 AM
That's a cool poster. The city in the reflection of the blade almost looks like Paris. That lit tower looks like the Eiffel Tower, but it's not.

@McGee You know what they say about short guys and tall girls?
marvel72 - 7/4/2013, 4:44 AM
this movie could be a gem if it stays as close to the source material as possible,slight changes i'm fine with.

total gross $400-$500,000,000.

Beast@$$ poster, if this movie does well I hope Fox will give other mutants a movie like Gambit, alpha flight, nightcrawler, x factor, and more

@McGee
Mystique is on her knees in that pic.(it's possible.)
Why do the chicks like his hairy,grumpy ass..it's not like he really looks like Hugh Jackman.
Ok..I know it's not real,I just love comics.

@sameoldthing
Like 90% of the time women are into the body, and Wolvie definitely has the body to drive women wild. Plus he's the "bad boy"... That's all it takes for them.
sameoldthing - 7/4/2013, 5:40 AM
@TelaVizion
Your right..it's similar to how men are 100% into tits.
Bad Girl Tits are even better but usually fake.
gambgel - 7/4/2013, 6:18 AM
about that last cover.... is it me or the face is copied and pasted on another shoot? :/
EpitomeofAwesome - 7/4/2013, 7:08 AM
cool, but they all look the same
DanteSparda - 7/4/2013, 7:14 AM
@McGee

X-Fact: Mystic mutant power is to change her physical form, that includes her size BOOM!!
MightyZeus - 7/4/2013, 7:18 AM
The Wolverine is going to be the best cbm of the year.
This film will be epic in every way. Bring it Wolverine. Your awesome.
TheWolverine08 - 7/4/2013, 7:20 AM
@raccoonwithrockets Agreed!
TheWolverine08 - 7/4/2013, 7:21 AM
These Japanese themed posters have been sublime. Makes even more excited for this movie. Seriously hope it delivers.
kisama - 7/4/2013, 7:28 AM
Ewww fake sword is cringe worthy....no way he is holding a tsuka and the blade has that cheap wall hanger hamon.
riseofloganX36 - 7/4/2013, 8:17 AM
i don't get you people in one paige you all hate the movie saying your not looking forward to it and it looks bad. Now there are some posters that come out and you all prase it and want to see it.
DanteSparda - 7/4/2013, 9:49 AM
@Maestro

おはようございます
BatsFan - 7/4/2013, 9:50 AM
This movie come out in 22 and it's not yet rated ? That his weird...
BatsFan - 7/4/2013, 9:54 AM
*days
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 7/4/2013, 9:56 AM
The 26th and they're probably still editing, seeing if they want to keep it the gritty 'R' style or chop it up for 'PG-13'.
Melkaticox - 7/4/2013, 9:59 AM
@mgeoff88 ...The Eiffel tower is white. That's the tokyo tower.
I mean, sure, it looks like the eiffel tower if you don't know shit about japan.

I actually like the poster TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM posted. A lot.
DanteSparda - 7/4/2013, 10:08 AM
@BatsFan

They are going to end with a PG13 for sure, though they probably are still editing to get the most violent and gritty film out of a PG13 rating.
Pharaoh - 7/4/2013, 12:17 PM
hope it stays as close a representation of the original story as possible, love Wolverine, love this story, love Jackman as Wolverine bring it on...

MrCameron - 7/4/2013, 12:36 PM
Hope this is good.

@ GambitFreak

Yeah, I've been growin some mutton chops for this movie as well (even though I'm 6'2 and look more like Captain America than anything) lol.
DurtyTalynt - 7/4/2013, 1:37 PM
@ gusto,

I got some buddies that would rather attend that pizza party instead of going to hang out at another buddies house who has a naked hugh jackman wolverine poster.
