The word is that we can get a look at the Wolverine, the new Wolverine movie supposedly set in Japan, come 26 July 2013. That’s a long damn wait. However, if they deliver a better move than X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it’ll be worth the wait.
The sad thing is for such a tepid piece of film mediocrity, XOW (just made that acronym up and I love it already) made $373 million USD worldwide on a budget of $85 million. What does that say about audiences in general. If that includes the sales on DVDs, I guess I somewhat put my cut in, so I guess this is “pot calling the kettle” and all that. Mea culpa. But I dig Wolverine. I wasn’t back there in the beginning, but I was hooked with Frank Miller’s Wolverine mini-series.
And if this new movie set in Japan takes its cues from that story, we might be looking at something pretty darn cool.
My main question is: when the fuck do I get my Planetary movie?
