“Eternity Can Be a Curse. A Man Can Run Out of Things To Live for.”

That’s a pretty damn good quote, and one that may indicate that the new Wolverine film might not be as terrible as it initially appeared. Yes, this new trailer treads much of the same ground as the first, but it’s a little better put together and there’s the goddamn Silver Samurai to boot, who may or may not be a robot.

It’s pointless to mourn for the day when Darren Aronofsky was attached to this movie, but even if the story the film is based on is a great one from the comics, there’s just an…artistry missing from this film from what I’ve seen so far. It’s being shot to much like an action blockbuster when I think it would benefit from a more careful eye. I think there’s a middleground between The Avengers and The Dark Knight where Wolverine could exist, but I don’t know if it will find it here.

I am looking forward to this movie, even if it’s overshadowed by Man of Steel. Now THAT’s a superhero movie that at least appears to have a sense of design behind it, which so far has made for some of the best trailers of the past year.

  1. A cool line in did, and a nice trailer, but I still smell disaster. I think the studio got worried by the lukewarm reception of the previous trailer and really went all in on this one, showing us many of the very best bits of the movie. But now that we’ve seen them, I believe many will remain uninterested, and many more will be unimpressed by the movie itself. We’ll see soon enough.
