First trailer for The Wolverine

Hugh Jackman stars in the latest X-Men spin-off, The Wolverine. Here, at last, is the first full trailer...

Finally. After a week that's seen us 'teasted' with Hollywood marketing's latest curse, trailers for trailers, we finally get a full promo for the eagerly-awaited The Wolverine.

The film sees Hugh Jackman reprising his most famous role, with James Mangold directing the movie. And this first trailer straight away suggests that talk about The Wolverine distancing itself from X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not off the mark. We've been told lots of times that this is a standalone movie, and there's certainly ample proof here.

Some have questioned why the first trailer is arriving comparably close to the release of the film itself. After all, big blockbusters seem to get their first trailer anywhere up to a year in advance. But we're reminded that the first promo for Dredd was close to release, and questions over that film were firmly answered when the movie was released.

So then: here it is. The first trailer for The Wolverine. And we remain, after seeing it, just as upbeat about watching the movie.

The Wolverine arrives in cinemas in July...
