Recent early screenings of “The Wolverine” thrilled fans when it revealed the much talked about scenes after the credits leading to the events of Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Hugh Jackman enthused and confirmed that there is in fact an after-credits teaser, which they consider as the tease of all tease. “There’s a lot of great actors in it, and if you stick around to the end of the credit of The Wolverine, you’re going to get a really nice Easter Egg for what Days of the Future Past has to offer…which we can’t reveal!” says Jackman.
Tormented, embarking on a quest to find meaning in his life, this is Wolverine’s ultimate journey and one which forces him to unleash that unbridled, animalistic ‘berserker’ rage in all its power and ferocity. Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” takes the legendary mutant to Tokyo where Logan/Wolverine is out of his element in Japan and becomes embroiled in a murky and mysterious conspiracy. Battling the fearsome Silver Samurai and other vicious adversaries, he is also searching for meaning in his life and questioning his immortality. Dark and gritty, the action-fueled drama is set after the events of the 2006 film “X-Men: The Last Stand” and was inspired by the storyline from a popular 1982 comic book by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee and Svetlana Khodchenkova.
“The Wolverine” opens July 25 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
After-Credits in ‘The Wolverine’ Reveals Scenes from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’
Manila once again gets special mention, this time in the main trailer of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Pacific Rim.”
As narrated in the trailer, which can be viewed below, Manila is the second city to be attacked by alien-like sea monsters originating in the Pacific Ocean. Scenes pertaining to the Manila attack are also featured, which are expected to create a sensation when the film opens locally in July.
In “Pacific Rim,” when legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.
But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films).
Opening across the Philippines in July 11 in 3D, 2D and regular theaters, “Pacific Rim” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
