Hugh Jackman a vulnerable Wolverine

Jun 30 2013, 4:20am CDT | by

Hugh Jackman's character is ''vulnerable in every way'' in 'The Wolverine'.

The actor reprises his role as the clawed anti-hero for the upcoming 'X-Men' spin-off movie and says it includes a much deeper exploration into the character than previous 'X-Men' films, or 2009's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.

He told SFX magazine: ''In this story, he becomes literally vulnerable in every way. Not just emotionally, but physically vulnerable, and those implications were fun to play.''

'The Wolverine' takes place after the events of 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and sees the nearly indestructible character isolate himself in Japan as he grieves the death of close friends and his love interest, Jean Grey [played by Famke Janssen].

Jackman added: ''You see Logan [Wolverine's real name] at his lowest point at the beginning of this movie; the tragedy of his wasted life. For the sake of not only himself but everyone around him, he thinks it's better to be away because when he comes back to the world, there's destruction and pain.''

Director James Mangold admits he was attracted to the film because of Wolverine's personal struggles, rather than just making a straight superhero action film.

He explained: ''I have a hero who has lost everything and everyone, some at his own hands. In some cases the casualty of being [nearly] immortal is that you outlast the mortals you love and you have to go on forever without them. For me, finding a character in that predicament of being lost emotionally, but not depressed, was the classic predicament of Westerns and samurai films.

''It's a man of violence, who has violence in his past and is trying to separate himself from the world so no one gets hurt, but ultimately gets called upon to use that power and violence for good. It's absolutely the trajectory of our film.''

Chappie’s Family Revealed In Window Cling For Neill Blomkamp’s Latest [Comic Con 2014]

Jul 28 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

After two movies filled with massive sci-fi action, it seems Neill Blomkamp is going a bit more emotional for his latest film. Sony very quietly kicked off the marketing campaign for Chappie at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, with a big banner and a window cling handed to fans as they walked by the booth. Most fans were confused by the swag, which shows a rudimentary drawing of two parents, one holding a gun, alongside a robot. But it’s an incredibly intriguing image for the March 2015 re ...

Screen Gems today trotted out a Comic-Con god in Sam Raimi, who dealt the kind of catnip that fanboys love. Raimi was there with Neil Druckmann, creator of the Naughy Dog game Last Of Us, to talk about how that vidgame is being turned into a feature with Raimi producing, and Druckmann writing the screenplay. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper, whose previous big vidgame to movie transfer was Resident Evil, has basically given over big creative controls to Druckmann in the movi ...

Meet Chappie in the First Poster For Neill Blomkamp's Action Comedy

Jul 24 2014 7:26am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Neill Blomkamp quickly established himself as the go-to-guy for gritty, realistic science fiction. District 9 was certainly an impressive debut effort from the South African director, while Elysium, although less well received, only bolstered his science fiction credentials.However, his next project, Chappie looks like it might do things slightly differently. Described as an action-comedy-drama, Chappie tells the story of a robot which is 'k ...

Jul 22 2014 9:55pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Neill Blomkamp‘s next film, Chappie, doesn’t have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but if this year is proving anything, it’s that panels aren’t the only way to raise awareness for a project. Sometimes something as simple as an evocative poster will do the trick. That’s exactly what Sony used in the case of Chappie, which stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley. Check out the first Chappie poster below. Thanks to Collider for these ima ...

Very little is known about District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp’s new film Chappie besides the fact that it revolves around a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters, and producer Simon Kinberg called it “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see.”  Well it looks like Sony Pictures is ready to unveil this curious pic to the public, as the first look at the titular robot (played b ...

Kevin Feige Teases Possible Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy Crossover

Jul 21 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: slash film

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that. If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, how ...

’90s Redux: Bill Nighy May Be Broadway-Bound In Hare’s ‘Skylight’; `Master Class’ Helmer Mike Nichols Talks Shop for HBO

Jul 11 2014 9:58am CDT | Source: Deadline

The Union Jack will be flying over Broadway big-time this coming season, as talk heats up about bringing Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and the acclaimed National Theatre revival of David Hare’s Skylight to New York in the spring. I wrote a few weeks ago that while the production will be telecast in the fall by NT Live, far better would be the chance to see Hare’s extraordinarily moving play — about the expired romance between an older, self-made businessman and an idea ...
