Not that much more ($33 million vs. $18). You have to keep in mind that ST-V also had a returning cast that were expecting larger and larger paychecks per film, and an inexperienced director who clearly didn't have the knack for film making or working with special effects. Top it off with the production issues and delays, and I can easily see the budget getting out of control.

New trailer looks promising. Reminds me of the old school Wolverine comics I read so many years ago with the bars and Japan and so on.

I want to thank you for claryfying. I think I mistyped when I compared the budgets, but I want to thank you for saying what I meant to say.

Delete the "www.trekbbs.com" part. It redirects back to the forum front page


EDIT- Nevermind. It was a Firefox script running. Turned the "Forbid Scripts" back on

Re: WOLVERINE director search down to 8

Two bits of Wolverine news...

Famke Jansson confirms her role is part of a flashback.

Rumors of a post-credit sequence that leads into Days of Future Past.

Re: WOLVERINE director search down to 8

Ironically, an article about a possible post-credits scene displays typical mainstream ignorance of the content of a post-credits scene from one of the other films.

I hope that happens. They really need to do a better job connecting the Wolverine movies to the X-men movies.

Re: WOLVERINE director search down to 8

I'd heard of this...sounds good to me. At the least if The Wolverine underperforms that scene alone might make those who passed curious enough to check it out later on DVD then see DOFP. The latter really needs to be a hit.

Excellently looking...and looks like (yes I'll finally admit this lol) that they're not totally ignoring Origins. This is going to be fantastic.

So now in some way, big or small, all the X-Films to date have relevancy to each other.

Fox is going to market and sell that big box set of Limited Edition Collector X-Men Saga Blu Rays.
They aren't totally idiots.

Re: WOLVERINE director search down to 8

Entertainment Weekly just helped out the Fox Marketing Dept.



I know they did a MoS cover about 2mo ago but seeing as how Warners owns EW this is big for The Wolverine under the tag, "Your Summer MUST List!"

Hopefully this does bring the awareness campaign up on this film.
