United Motion Pictures released in 3D theatres today the highly anticipated The Wolverine, the second film in the spinoff series of the famous clawed superhero. Hugh Jackman, who originated the role of the immortal mutant in 2000, stars for the sixth time as Wolverine.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, 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.
