20th Century Fox’s marketing for The Wolverine has been quiet compared to other movies opening around the same time, but we’ll finally be getting our first look at footage from the film later this month.
Director James Mangold tweeted the news:
Clarity for all asking: I will tweet a peek (a “tweazer”) on 26th. Full teaser online on 27th. 3D and 2D in theaters on the big screen 29th.

Mangold said previously that from March until July 26th we’ll be “saturated” with promotional material, so all this time with very little marketing will be made up for.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, the film takes place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand. Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
