Japanese Trailer For THE WOLVERINE Comes With Added Ninja Action
Which may, perhaps, be one of the motivating factors in tackling one of the character's popular Japanese storylines with this latest outing. It engages the hardcore fanbase, for one thing, while providing some distance from the dodgy results of the character's most recent big screen outings of significance. And it also gives Japan - a large, wealthy, cinema going market - a rooting interest in coming out en masse. Cue up the Japan- specific trailer.
The footage in this latest trailer is largely familiar - I'd say 85 - 90% of it is also in the main US trailer - but there are some definite additions while the presentation of the familiar is significantly different and clearly meant to put a greater emphasis on the Japanese cast and locale. Take a look below.
