Can't wait to pick this up. Haven't seen it yet.
Luminus - 11/1/2013, 8:07 AM
So, halfway through the film, old Logan will snap back to the future and Jackman will end up playing 2 versions of himself?
thewonderer - 11/1/2013, 8:07 AM
Love the bias of this article.
Luminus - 11/1/2013, 8:08 AM
Or 3, technically (old Wolverine, old Wolverine in young Wolverine's body, and then just young Wolverine).

Behind Last Stand? There is no true justice in the world...
arsonjack - 11/1/2013, 8:13 AM
everyone loves wolverine.
MarkJulian - 11/1/2013, 8:19 AM
@thewonderer X-Men: The Last Stand was received very poorly by fans and critics alike despite its box office success. And The Wolverine is the lowest grossing domestic X-movie to date. Undisputable facts, not bias.
thejon93rd - 11/1/2013, 8:20 AM
I have a feeling that we'll be seeing a lot of characters go bye-bye in this new film, but it'll be 100 times more effective than The Last Stand was. Personally, I like pretending that The Last Stand and X-Men Origins don't even exist. They messed the continuity up so badly, but thankfully Singer is back to return the favour by delivering the final cap to his trilogy.
RyKnow - 11/1/2013, 8:22 AM
Really looking forward to this film. The Wolverine was a great film and it leads straight into this, ending on a whammer of a cliffhanger...
TheRationalNerd - 11/1/2013, 8:23 AM
Totally buying the extended cut day ONE!

Just going to leave this here...wish they extended a theme out of this for the film. It fits the film so well!

TheWolverine08 - 11/1/2013, 8:27 AM
Cool stuff. Can't wait for DOFP.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/1/2013, 8:33 AM
@thewonderer "Love the bias of this article" That's funny coming from you.

Still getting the 3D copy
TheWolverine08 - 11/1/2013, 8:42 AM
The unrated cut should be dope.
MercwithMouth - 11/1/2013, 8:46 AM
Wah, wah, wah...

I hate Singer!
Too much Wolverine!

The Wolverine now the second highest grossing? Awesome, it's the best X-Film made so far, so it deserves the recognition.

With it being the lowest in the Domestic category, who cares? Let the rest of the world make Fox their money. Pretty sure the Wolverine did well here in Canada.

DOFP will be [frick]ing EPIC! And I truly hope that Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine for the upcoming X-Force movie. He is Wolverine, there's no one else I could think of that could ever do what he's done with the character.

And I for one, am so glad that Singer is back to fix Rattner and Hood's [frick]-ups. Love live Singer! The godfather of modern CBM's!

But a shout out is needed to Stephen Norrington and Guillermo del Toro for their exceptional work on the Blade series!
MercwithMouth - 11/1/2013, 8:46 AM
Long live Singer***
TheWolverine08 - 11/1/2013, 8:47 AM
That's the spirit Merc.
TheWolverine08 - 11/1/2013, 8:50 AM
Wrll, Chris Donner is the real godfather of CBMs :)
lvcl - 11/1/2013, 9:09 AM
Mangold is proud of his own shit.
For that guy reach #173 and lower than The Smurfs and Despicable Me is a complete success

We don´t want an extended bloody versión

@lvcl

[frick] no, keep the default Wolverine costume far the [frick] away from live action, if Caps suit in Avengers doesn't prove some suits must never be in live action than I don't know what else could possibly convince you.
rebellion - 11/1/2013, 9:39 AM
@lvcl .. box office means nothing, if anything it shows how easily you can manipulate people into seeing certain films.
BlackPhillip - 11/1/2013, 9:40 AM
Despicable Me 2 almost made a billion? Wow!

Can't wait to buy the unrated version of Wolverine.
JoJo1982 - 11/1/2013, 10:01 AM
I think The Wolverine deserve to do good business and .400 million and still making more is pretty good for a movie that only cost 120 million


Looking forward to a sequel in Russia setting(Omega Red)
Tymminator - 11/1/2013, 10:11 AM
The Wolverine is 2nd biggest worldwide for the X-franchise, but domestically it's dead last.

That's sad, as it is overall one of the better FoX-Men movies made. Except for their total disregard for the properties of Adamantium and a few other things, it's was real fun. Hugh Jackman has my respect for the enthusiasm he has for the role as well as his obvious respect towards the character.
HAILHYDRA - 11/1/2013, 10:20 AM
I never read the Old Man Logan series. Why did he suddenly start aging?
TheWolverine08 - 11/1/2013, 10:27 AM
@Omega The ninja is supposed to be shown in full in the unrated cut.
MercwithMouth - 11/1/2013, 10:34 AM
@ lvcl

You're an ass clown.

Did you not read the article? Wolverine passed X2 to still behind Origins in 2nd place.

Also, why should it need to make Despicable Me 2 numbers? Target audience was smaller (PG13 as compared to PG), not a family movie, a smaller, more personal movie. And it had to right the wrongs that Origin had, which would have drove away some of the audience.

@ Tymminator

Curious as to what properties of Adamantium it ignored? Super-heated adamantium can cut through Adamantium...
Not wanting to start a war, just curious as to what you meant...
JoJo1982 - 11/1/2013, 10:35 AM
@tymminator

I think the main reasons why it was a big hit in the U.S. mainly due to the crowded summer we had with all these big summer movies and fans that still remember the terrible origins movie before.
It seems like after June, a lot of action packed summer movies went down the drain at box office in the U.S.
I mean

The Wolverine seem like the only one that did way better than all of these movies
JoJo1982 - 11/1/2013, 10:37 AM
In the U.S.
sikwon - 11/1/2013, 10:40 AM
Hailhydra.. old man Logan is set in tbe future, its a fantastic book. I love the XMen and I hate, despise, what they've done with these movies. Wolverine was good but we still havent gotten Wolverine or ANY good xmen, though Nightcrawler was the only time I felt like they showed how amazing these characters are supposed to be.
lvcl - 11/1/2013, 10:46 AM
@ MercwithMouth

Your mother tells me that you´ll eat beans tomorrow

Of course I read the article but if you enter in Box Office Mojo you´ll find out that it´s not true

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/world/?pagenum=2&p=.htm

400 M$ not bad bussines but they can do it much better and get much more money as MARVEL´s The AVENGERS and IRONMAN

X-Men desserve much more that these stupid Wolverine movies
TelaVizion - 11/1/2013, 10:54 AM
The Last Stand is the best of the original trilogy. Deal with it.
Tymminator - 11/1/2013, 10:58 AM
Nope, superheated Adamantium can't. Unless that's something they did in the last 5 years. Adamantium once set is pretty much immutable and also resistant to temperature and all that. At least that's how it was for literally decades after it was introduced.

If they were able to use the special Vibranium that is from Antarctica THAT can and has messed up/destroyed Adamantium as it messes with molecular bonds, but unless there was a retcon in the last five years (the amount of time where I pretty much started slowly drifting from modern comics). Hot Adamantium against Adamantium should really just spark. Unless Thor or the Hulk was the force behind it, that I could buy.
JoJo1982 - 11/1/2013, 11:01 AM
Lol y'all do know that adamantium and vibranium are not real right?!

Lol
deamon - 11/1/2013, 11:27 AM
How many money madae movie doesn't mean this movie is good or not, just look at IM3. The Wolverine is better movie than IM3 for sure.

So extended version will be only at Bluray or earlier at DVD version too?
Tymminator - 11/1/2013, 11:32 AM
In a fictional setting, you still have to be be consistent within the world you create and it's rules, period. That's for movies, books, comics or whatever.

When translating one for the other, one has to realize there are fans of said material, so any changes you make should be considered very carefully. For example, for me, making Stane a partner to Howard Stark although not in the comics, fit for the movie and it's narrative , and really didn't harm either character. Messing with The properties of Adamantium though, that bothered me as that's really the whole point of Adamantium.

You can be fine with it or not. But if things depart too much even if you are fine with a change, it would be insane to not expect some fan backlash.
