'The Wolverine' Poster, Six-Second 'Twzzer' Hit the Web (Video)
James Mangold’s sequel to 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" also got the world's first Vine-based teaser for the trailer.
A flurry of promotional items for The Wolverine hit the web Monday, giving fans their first look at six-seconds of Fox's hotly anticipated film.
A new one-sheet for James Mangold’s sequel to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine features a shirtless Hugh Jackman kneeling in the rain, surrounded by a dark city. The film, following Logan (Jackman) as he travels to Japan and faces his ultimate nemesis, is set for release July 26.
A six-second glimpse of the upcoming trailer for The Wolverine also was released, giving fans a don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-it view of what's to come. A 20-second teaser will be released Tuesday, and a full trailer will be released Wednesday. That's right: This is a teaser for a teaser for a trailer.
The Vine-based clip -- being called a "twzzer" or "tweezer" -- was tweeted by Mangold on Monday. Fox co-president of marketing Tony Sella came up with the concept, which is the world's first-ever Vine-based twzzer, and a notable departure from the normal route of releasing a teaser trailer on the film's website or Apple trailer page.
If you watch carefully, you'll see an appearance by Famke Janssen, who it looks like will reprise her role as Jean Grey in the new movie. Watch the "tweezer" below.
