New Releases photo

New Releases, week of 12/7/13: Sequelitis Edition

This week's home video releases involve two big sequels: one revered, one reviled. The Wolverine (and subsequently a re-release of the entire X-Men series so far) hits DVD and Blu-ray while the less said about The Smurfs 2, the better. It'l...

The Wolverine getting a sequel because money

Because the X-Men spin-off sequel The Wolverine did so well in theaters (making $413 million dollars worldwide), it's only natural that talk of another film would start soon because people like makin' money. According to the good folks at D...

Rumor: Jackman offered $100 million to remain Wolverine

Get that salt ready, everyone: The National Enquirer says that Fox is looking to pay Hugh Jackman $100 million to play Wolverine in four more movies. Given the amount of money involved, this probably means four Wolverine-centric movies rath...

NRH's Weekly Analysis: X-Men something something, Part 2

So last week I took a look at the original X-Men film trilogy and so, as promised, here's some thoughts on the following films. They're an odd bunch; two solo ventures and a complete reboot/prequel/fanservice extravaganza. X-Men h...

Here's sweet concept art of Iron Man 3 and The Wolverine

The Wolverine and Iron Man 3 turned out surprisingly well. Since the character building was done well, it would've been a shame if the rest of the movie wasn't handled as well. Josh Nizzi (an artist who's worked on The Avengers, Django Unch...

Box Office Numbers: Snikt

The Wolverine took the top slot at the box office with $55 million, which is actually $30 million less than its stinkburger predecessor X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While $55 million is short of initial projections, The Wolverine's total world...

Review: The Wolverine

Around the Flixist office we've been discussing the screenwriting book Save the Cat, which has become Hollywood's sort of point-by-point playbook for how to put a film together since it came out. It's made a lot of movies feel a lot alike s...

See The Wolverine early and free

There have been plenty of big, superhero movies this summer, but the last one into the gate is The Wolverine. Judging from its god awful predecessor we shouldn't have much faith that it will be good, but from the trailers it looks like the ...

Let's hope The Wolverine is as good as this fight clip

The clip above contains an extended look at the fight on a speeding bullet train teased in The Wolverine's trailers. From what I can see Hugh Jackman is hilariously angry, everyone seems to have enough strength to not only jump in midair (...

Trailer: The Wolverine

I get less and less excited about The Wolverine as we get closer to release. It was already the summer superhero film I was least looking forward to, but the trailers just aren't exciting me. This new one digs a bitter deeper into wha...

The Wolverine gets two posters full of yelling

(Update: New image stills have been added via /Film and Entertainment Weekly) In terms of posters The Wolverine kind of peaked early. I doubt anything is going to be as awesome as the black and white ink poster we got back in October of las...

New image from The Wolverine is staring you down

This new image from The Wolverine features Hugh Jackman about to jack someone the hell up. I don't know what the context is for this image, but I assume Wolverine is urinating in the corner of a Japanese nightclub and someone has rudely int...

Hugh Jackman puts a shirt on in new Wolverine images

Don't worry. Images of shirtless Hugh Jackman with claws are still readily available, but it is nice to see that he will be donning some upper body clothing at some points during the upcoming The Wolverine. And damn if it ain't one snazzy g...

New Wolverine image is just like the others, shirtless

I'm noticing a pattern here. The Wolverine is all about reminding us of how sexy Hugh Jackman is. No seriously. From the very first veiny promo image, to the reveal of his bone claws, to the badass motion poster, each image has a shirtless ...

New poster for The Wolverine is greatest film poster ever

While The Wolverine may not be as awesome as it potentially could have been under Darren Aronofsky, it's still shaping up to be a formidable entry in the X-Men film franchise. With the film taking place in Japan, focusing on Loga...

The Wolverine gets bone claws, set after The Last Stand

After the first sexy teaser image, this new image (courtesy of Empire) has Wolvie sporting some bone claws. Which admittedly might have been the only good thing Origins had going for it other than Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. On top of the im...

Mark Millar is consulting on Fox's Marvel properties

Guys, I think this comic book movie business is getting pretty serious. This is usually where you would see a pic of slowpoke, but you'll just have to use your imagination. My point is, studios are going to do whatever they can to ensure th...

First image of The Wolverine has a veiny Hugh Jackman

Even if this first official promo image from the upcoming sequel/probably not sequel The Wolverine doesn't give away to much, it premieres two very important things, Hugh Jackman's bulgy, veiny, and sex-ay muscles and Hugh Jackman's bulgy, ...

Update: Jessica Biel is NOT in The Wolverine

Update: Well, that was short lived. Turns out Jessica Biel will not be starring in The Wolverine. Talks seem to have fallen through. This doesn't mean Viper won't be appearing in the film, but Jessica Biel won't be playing her. Original sto...
