THE WOLVERINE First Set Photos From Japan
James Mangold's The Wolverine has begun filming on location in Japan, and today Hugh Jackman was seen filming scenes at the Zojoji Temple in Tokyo, Japan. Hit the jump to check it out.
Eyewitnesses observed Hugh Jackman on set, but no clear shots of the star have surfaced just yet. Filming will continue til September 2 and the Buddhist temple. Most of the scenes in Japan will be filmed at locations in Tokyo and Hiroshima. Also, a fun little tidbit, the local title of the film will be, "Wolverine Vs. Samurai." To coincide withe Japanese title, Fox has registered the domain, "wolverine-samurai.jp."
Thanks to Sunfire for the tip.
