Hollywood’s Most Influential star Hugh Jackman on the upcoming 3d saga releasing this July!
With thundering action, breathtaking stunts and a riveting, gritty storyline, Hugh Jackman returns as the iconic clawed mutant in THE WOLVERINE. During the course of a dark and ominous journey, the thrilling 3D drama from acclaimed director James Mangold takes Logan/Wolverine to Tokyo where he is embroiled in a complex web of intrigue, confronting lethal samurai steel.
Releasing on 26th July in India, the film is a much awaited chapter in Hugh Jackman’s life!!
"I waited in a way 12 years for this chapter in this saga, for this samurai story. From the very first week I had on [the first] X-Men, I was reading this comic and Producer Lauren Shuler Donner and I were saying, one day, hopefully we get to do this story. We really went for something new and different. The moment the studio agreed to call it The Wolverine I was just thrilled. Rather than saying Wolverine 2, this is a standalone different movie. This is set in a different time, it's a fair way after X-Men Origins" says the global superstar who was recently voted as one of the most influential stars in Hollywood.
Jackman, who is also a producer on the film, admits he did not foresee himself as Wolverine for so many years in the running.
"I never thought my run would last this long. Particularly for a guy who can't age, obviously there is a shelf life to playing this role, so I love it and I've always found it fascinating and slightly, I'll admit, frustrating that I feel we've never really delivered what I would say is the core of the character. And I think in this story, I know you get to see the ultimate Wolverine. You get to see who he really is. You definitely see him at his most vulnerable, both physically and emotionally."
Catch the dashing Hugh Jackman as he returns with THE WOLVERINE.
