The-Wolverine-Ink-Poster-YukioEvery once in a while, a film comes along and knocks it out the park with a brilliant marketing campaign that really goes the extra mile. James Mangold’s The Wolverine has definitely been one of those films, and a pretty big part of that is down to the awesome ink posters that we’ve been seeing.

The first poster came a while back, featuring the titular character himself, and was more recently followed by a Silver Samurai teaser poster. And now Fox have released a further two ink posters, giving us a great look at Viper and Yukio, going alongside the latest trailer that hit this week.

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.

Hugh Jackman is naturally front and centre, reprising his role as Logan / Wolverine. And he stars alongside Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto, Will Yun Lee, Hal Yamanouchi, Brian Tee, and Svetlana Khodchenkova.

Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) is directing from a script co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). And Jackman is producing alongside Hutch Parker, John Palermo (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Drive), and Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men, Constantine).

The Wolverine will be released in 3D on 25th July here in the UK, with its US release date set for July 26th. Whilst we await its arrival, here are the great new ink posters.
