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.
THERE IS A POST CREDITS SCENE! I've heard it is awesome, whatever it is, so make sure you stay to catch it. Really looking forward to seeing this in the next few days.

There is a movie coming out next year with the same character. I am guessing the post credit scene ties into it.

Got tickets so a buddy of mine & I can see it Thursday night. Too bad he prefers the 2D, though.

I'll have to see it in 3D later...

Are Thursday night showings a general thing?

My local theater does not seem to be advertising Thursday showtimes.

Many recent blockbuster movies have had their first showings on Thursday night. It really started taking off after TDKR.

There are already few theaters in my city that will be showing this movie at 10M on Thursday, more will probably start advertising it the closer we get to the release date.

Spoiler alert: It's a masked Deadpool, voiced by Ryan Reynolds, walking out of a Man of Steel screening and saying, "Well, that blew chunks." :devil:

uhm....yeah, they are. And not just in big cities, either.

I was able to go to see Fast Five and the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean at midnight shows in Cleburne & Stepheville when they first came out.

The big change I've noticed is that "midnight" openings are happenin' earlier - last week, Red 2's first show was at 7:30 Thursday night. And most of the other big movies have opened around 9:30 or 10 on Thursdays this summer.

I meant for this film specifically.

The thing is, the website I was looking at didn't display any times before Friday, and if you put in a request to search Thursday times you just got kicked out of Safari.

Looks like I'm the first to see it on trekbbs!

Went last night as it was opening night here in NZ

Was a good movie, 7/10. The thing is it seemed more like a movie that was made because it HAD to be, rather than someone came up with a great story.

The action scenes were very good, Jackman was solid as Wolverine as he usually is. The setting was fun, and there are some nice nods to the other X men movies.

The villains are fairly weak in my opinion, but that's ok.

It's way better than origins at least.

Also stay for the post credits scene, it's got some familiar faces and sets up the next X men movie

I was very, very surprised to find the post credit scene online

http://www.toptenbestfilms.com/2013/...dit-scene.html

Yes this is real so do not watch if you want to be surprised.

I wonder how long it will be online before pulled.

Wow.

Very, VERY cool. As if I weren't already looking forward to DoFP.

Seriously? Fox expects this to do 75-80 million?? From the complete lack of buzz, I'm expecting something quite a bit less than that.
