First up, is the official poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The new ad comes with the tagline, “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand,” which is taken from the opening of the second book by Suzanne Collins.
We see a determined Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen standing at the edge of a cliff with her bow and arrow in hand. Behind is a cloud shaped like a Mockingjay, which is a symbol for the people of Panem.
In Catching Fire Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) go on a “Victor’s Tour” after winning the Hunger Games. Meanwhile, a people of Panem plot a revolt against the Capitol.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens November 22.
And not to be outdone by all that Iron Man hullabaloo, director James Mangold has tweeted a new photo from The Wolverine.
The image shows Hugh Jackman dueling with Hiroyuki Sanada (who plays Shingen Yashida in the film).
“Hiro Sanada and HJ rehearse clash of claws and blades,” Mangold writes.
The Wolverine takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand and finds Logan in Japan, where he’s protecting Mariko (Tao Okamoto) from the Yakuza.
Bryan Singer gave X-Men fans their first glimpse of Ellen Page as Kitty “Shadowcat” Pryde and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine this week from the set of Days of Future Past.
The director snapped Page looking at Shawn Ashmore (who plays Iceman) and tweeted the pic with the caption: “Hello, Kitty.”
He also gave us a glimpse of the back of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine sporting his trademark coif and leather duds. “Fitting @RealHughJackman,” Singer tweeted.
Kitty Pryde plays a major role in Days of Future Past, which brings together the casts from the original trilogy and 2011′s First Class prequel. The storyline deals with an alternative future in which mutants have been gathered and put an internment camps. A future version of Pryde travels back in time to warn the present-day X-Men. The film will reportedly be set in the 1970s.
And for those of you who haven’t seen it, the CinemaCon trailer for this summer’s The Wolverine has hit the web, as well as a brand-spanking new poster. Hey, you can never have too much X-Men, right?
The Wolverine takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand and finds Logan in Japan, where he’s protecting Mariko (Tao Okamoto) from the Yakuza. The new spot gives us a look at one of the villains – Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) – as well as the main antagonist, the Silver Samurai.
Director James Mangold tweeted a new poster for the villainous Silver Samurai, which looks absolutely stunning. I love how it uses the same watercolour style as the first teaser poster that just showed Wolverine.
The Wolverine is being adapted from a 1982 comic book arc from Frank Miller and Chris Claremont (one of my all-time favourites) and is skedded to hit theatres July 26.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on July 18, 2014.
The full trailer for The Wolverine isn’t out until Wednesday, but director James Mangold stoked appetites with a six-second Vine trailer he posted to Twitter today.
In it, we get a glimpse of Silver Samurai and Famke Janssen reprising her role as Jean Grey. There’s also some flying action of the adamantium-enhanced hero.
Hugh Jackman is back once again as Logan, in a story adapted from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s 1982 mini-series. Like the book, the action will be set in Japan, with Wolverine battling an assortment of ninjas and samurai.
