    James Mangold Calls 'The Wolverine' A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    'Walk the Line' Director Also Likens It To 'Chinatown,' Calls It A Foreign-Language Super-Hero Drama, Film-Noir & Detective Story; Reveals He Spoke With AronofskyEvidenced by his success with “Cop Land,” “Walk the Line,” “3:10 To Yuma” and “Knight and Day,” James Mangold has a knack for turning populist entertainment into personal expression. But when 20th Century Fox announced that Mangold would be taking on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” his fans seemed concerned he might be overwhelmed by the enormity of a franchise sequel, and the constant scrutiny that seems to come with one. (Never mind the fact that he’s direc...

    From the billboards you might think thisis another Transformers movie—heaven help us—when in fact, Real Steel is a cross between Rocky and The Champ. It’s formulaic and unashamedly manipulative, but it’s played with sincerity…and it w...

    Hugh Jackman Doubts There Will Be A 'X-Men 4' Movie, But Is Still Open To More 'Wolverine' Films

    Actor Says He Asked Darren Aronofsky To Helm 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' Before He Dropped Out Of 'The Wolverine'This weekend Hugh Jackman was on hand in Los Angeles to discuss his robot boxing movie, “Real Steel,” which hits theaters October 7th. Early buzz on that flick is good and the studio has enough faith that they’ve already begun development on a sequel. But before that sequel, Jackman will sing alongside Russell Crowe in “Les Miserables” and, once again, return to the role that made him for “The Wolverine,” the much-discussed, long in-development sequel to 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Scripted by Christopher McQuarrie, the story i...
