    Review: ‘The Wolverine’ Starring Hugh Jackman

    The narrative for months before and during the making of the movie by James Mangold and Hugh Jackman, was a borderline campaign apology that read something like: “Please excuse the inexcusable ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’ We are starting over here. Please take this journey with us as we explore the W...

    First Reviews For 'The Wolverine' Suggest That It's Simply Better Than 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' But Not Much More

    So far for this superhero summer, Marvel hit a home-run with "Iron Man 3," Warner Bros. wiped the sweat off their brow and successfully rebooted Superman in "Man Of Steel" and now it's up to Fox to see if they revive Wolverine after fans and audiences nearly revolted after the revolting "X-Men Origi...

    Is The New 'Wolverine' Marketing -- TV Spot, Photos, Featurette -- Preparing Us For Inevitable Disappointment?

    Many audiences just won't give a damn or notice and that's completely valid, but for the more discerning, shall we say, modern movie obsessive, director James Mangold's credibility is really going to take a hit if "The Wolverine" isn't at least a sub-decent movie.

    Does The New 6-Second 'Wolverine' Teaser Ruin A Rumored Cameo?

    It's one of those mornings. Super hero spoilers left and right! Oh no, what will you do? While there's no shortage of blogs telling you the second a "Wolverine" trailer will appear weeks in advance, aside from new photos this morning, there haven't been a ton of marketing materials on the Hugh Jackm...

    Discuss: Is James Mangold Setting The Wrong Expectations By Revealing His Inspirations For 'The Wolverine'?

    In the early months of promoting a big-budget film, parties involved usually make a play towards reaching diehards first, making their film seem like a boutique item to the devoted. This sort of fan service feeds the few who are credited with starting the “buzz” on a film before a trailer is release...
