Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) may have died at the end of X-Men: The Last Stand, but she still lives on in Wolverine’s (Hugh Jackman) dreams. Her memory haunts him due to his involvement in her death. He can’t get her out of his head. Cue Kylie Minogue song.
Wolverine’s mutant healing power unfortunately doesn’t apply to his heart. The X-Men heads to Japan to escape his memories. In the land of the rising sun, Wolverine encounters ninjas, his arch-nemesis The Silver Samurai and the nefariously sexy Viper (Svetlana Khochenkova). He also bumps into a man he saved during World War II. Forever grateful to Wolverine, the now elderly man wants to give him a normal life by taking away his healing special powers. Check out a more vulnerable Wolverine in the brand new two minute, 30-second trailer below.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents 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.
