Eight new shots from ‘The Wolverine’

Claws out, ready to cut up some ninjas. Hugh Jackman now holds the record for the actor who has played the same superhero in the most movies, with six X-Men films and spin-offs under his belt. This latest one has a bit of a pedigree, with a script by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects). It was also originally scheduled to be directed by Darren Aronofsky, which would have been quite a thing. James Mangold (Walk The Line) ended up getting the job, and Entertainment Weekly just gave us a set of new shots. They picture the metal-boned hero walking the streets of Japan, hanging out in pachinko parlors, and facing a hot assassin (Rila Fukushima) in a very tight dress. The Wolverine opens on July 26th.
