'The Wolverine' Trailer Won't Premiere Until 2013 Says Director James Mangold

The filmmaker shot down rumors that the first footage would be attached to prints of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'.
There were reports surfacing recently that the first trailer for The Wolverine is debuting in front of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey next month, on December 14th. Director James Mangold took to his Twitter page earlier today to clear up the news, revealing that the trailer will not premiere until early 2013.



It makes sense when you take into account the tweet he sent out just before that message, that there is only one day of production left on The Wolverine. While they likely already have plenty of footage ready to cut into a trailer, it seems like too quick of a turnaround.



There are a few possibilities of when this footage may debut. It may premiere during Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, or it could be attached to prints of the Fox action sequel A Good Day to Die Hard, hitting theaters February 14.

The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013 and stars Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee. The film is directed by James Mangold.

Super Bowl episode 47.1, "Super Bowl XLVII" stars Beyoncé Knowles, Rachael Markarian, Cynyon Dawn Rodriguez, Colin Kaepernick, Jim Harbaugh, Ray Lewis, Jim Nantz, Jacoby Jones and is directed by Mike Arnold.

    Some productions send the footage immediately into the editing suite after they are done shooting for the day. Kick-Ass 2 has a 6 minute sizzle reel and shooting wraps at the end of this week.

    Disappointing sure, but I'm positive it'll be worth it in the long run.
