Trailer for The Wolverine showcases Silver Samurai, Yukio and Jean Grey

The Wolverine (Trailer) - Jean Grey and Logan

Almost two months after the debut of the first trailer for The Wolverine, Fox has unleashed a new trailer for their X-Men franchise film. Indeed, this latest trailer not only expands on some of the narrative from the first trailer, but it introduces a new/old friend to the mix.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

Directed by James Mangold with a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, it is set for a 26 July 2013 release from Fox.
