Film Review: ‘The Wolverine’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-wolverine06

This second installment in a supposed trilogy on Wolverine is certainly a step in the right direction. Despite ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ being a terrible mess of a film on all levels, it managed to muster almost $400 million worldwide. With James Mangold at the helm this time and leaving off the ‘X-Men‘ title, we have a decent attempt of furthering one of the most beloved heroes in comic book history. Leaving the CG effects on the back-burner this time around, and going with a hand-to-hand combat method with elements of noir and Kurosawa in mind, this ninja-heavy action blockbuster for Fox should garner appropriate returns.

Hi, Bryan Here….

This is the brand new trailer for ‘The Wolverine‘ starring Hugh Jackman. This trailer should be in front of most prints of ‘Fast and Furious 6‘ this weekend, so be sure to look out for that. The film will be in 3D and is directed by James Mangold (‘Copland‘, ‘3:10 To Yuma‘). This is also a prequel to the whole X-Men series and will focus a bit on Logan’s time in Japan, which is a fan favorite in the comics. In this trailer, we get a big look at that side of the story. The film opens July 26th and I hope it’s a bit better than the previous film.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The-Wolverine-2013-movie

Here is a Japanese trailer for the upcoming ‘Wolverine‘ film titled ‘The Wolverine‘. It showcases a tiny bit of new footage that we haven’t seen from previous trailers. This looks loads better than the previous ‘Wolverine‘ effort already. James Mangold is directing this sequel, which is not as appetizing as Darren Aronofsky directing, but that is long in the past. Mangold did ‘3:10 to Yuma‘, which was great, so let’s hope for something that spectacular, but Wolvy Berserk style. Snikt!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Finally, after several years of going in and out of production, the new Wolverine film is finally taking shape.  James Mangold is directing the project.  Mangold directed ‘Cop Land’, ‘Girl Interrupted’, ‘3:10 To Yuma’, ‘Identity’, and ‘Walk the Line’ to name a few.  Not sure how to take this film yet.  At one point, Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct, but that fell through.  I was not a fan of ‘Wolverine Origins’, but hopefully this film will be much better.

Director Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler) did not get the job to direct the new Superman flick, but he is currently in talks to direct the next installment of the Wolverine franchise.


As of now, Aronofsky has a perfect record in filmmaking.  But so did Gavin Hood (Tsotsi) before he directed Wolverine.  I did not like the Wolverine movie.  It was completely sloppy and uninteresting.  A terrible film really.


Let’s hope that Aronofsky gets creative control with this film so it will not tarnish his reputation.  Plus it would reunite Aronofsky and Hugh Jackman working together.  Their previous collaboration was on the sci-fi love story, “The Fountain”.


Looking forward to seeing Wolverine in Japan.


SNIKT!

It’s finally been confirmed and the Old Man Logan storyline for the next Wolverine movie is a GO!!!  ‘Deadpool‘ has opened the doors for the powers that be to realize that an R-rated comic book movie is not a death sentence and Fox has green-lit an R-rated Wolverine 3!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 18th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Hi, Bryan Here….

Jessica Biel has just landed the role of Viper in Fox’s ‘The Wolverine’ film.  Viper formally known as Madame Hdrya has been in the X-Men universe for a long time now and we hear that her role is pretty big.  Let’s not forget that Biel was in one other Marvel film.  Can you guess which one that was?  If you guessed ‘Blade: Trinity’, then you guessed correctly.

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 4th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here…..

That’s right.  Hugh Jackman will head back to the big stage on Broadway for a new show, but not as Wolverine.  But rather ‘Houdini’.  Houdini marks the debut of Aaron Sorkin on stage, with music by Stephen Schwartz. Jack O’Brien has been set to direct the production, which will be presented by producer Scott Sanders and David Rockwell, the latter of whom will design the sets.

Wolverine Sequel Finally Has A New Director!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

This competition for director of the Wolverine sequel has been going on forever it seems like.  THere have been quite a few people up for the job and some who have been offered but later dropped out.  Such as Darren Aronofsky who dropped out a few months ago.  Well Hugh Jackman and Fox has picked their director.  And that director is James Mangold.

Hi Bryan Here…

Director Tom Hooper’s next project will be the adaptation of the stage play ‘Les Miserables’ and he is courting Hugh Jackman to be the star.  Also, actor Paul Bettany (‘Priest’, ‘Legion’) is wanting the role of Javert for which he has already read and sang the songs for execs and casting directors.  The goal so far is to start production by the end of the year somewhere in Europe.

Director Duncan Jones Might Helm Wolverine Sequel!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 12th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Seems like the rumor mill is in full force in that director Duncan Jones (Moon, The Source Code) is having meetings about directing the Wolverine sequel.  At one point it was going to be Darren Aronofsky, but he pulled out at the last minute, so now the crew is trying to find someone quickly.  It doesn’t seem like Duncan Jones would want to take the project on meaning it doesn’t look like his cup of tea.  I feel he would want to make his own super hero film by creating a new one and not be tied down by Marvel or the big studio execs on ever single frame.   Who knows?  But our fellow contributor Joel, has a little something to say about this matter below.

Hi Bryan here…

Director Darren Aronofsky has dropped out of the next Wolverine film.  Aronofsky made Pi, Black Swan, and The Wrestler.  This is a fairly big blow to the comic book world.  Now who knows when Wolverine will be made or if a director as good as Aronofsky would hired to take on the job.

Film Review #2: ‘Logan’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 3rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

thumbnail_25047

Even when the dust settles and recency bias fades, I can’t imagine LOGAN not being considered one of the greatest superhero films of all time. For me, LOGAN is in the same class as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 1-2, Iron Man, Reeve’s Superman, Burton’s Batman, etc. I believe all of those comic films work as films and stories first, comic fun second. There are plenty of “fun” comic movies I thoroughly enjoy and love but I wouldn’t classify them as well-crafted films. LOGAN is a great story and character arc first and comic fun second. It just works on every level.

Film Review: ‘LOGAN’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 11.10.34 AM

For decades now, we have been clamoring for a ‘Wolverine‘ film done right. From his first incarnation in Hulk #181 to his own miniseries in comic book form in the 1980’s by Frank Miller, to the amazing Saturday Morning Cartoon, and his first appearance in a feature film in 2000 with ‘X-Men‘, which had the song and dance man Hugh Jackman play the iconic character. He was so good at playing Logan/Wolverine, that fans immediately took a liking to him as that character and he went on to play the ‘Snikt-y Snikt’ character in almost a dozen more films. Besides the ‘X-Men‘ films, Wolverine got his own set of standalone films, which may or may not have been liked by a lot of people for various reasons. Either the story was too silly or the character Wolverine was to PG for fans.
