Wolverine, The (New to DVD)
20th Century Fox; 2013; 126 minutes; PG-13, for violence and language; Directed by James Mangold; Starring: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee, Famke Janssen; Screenwriter(s): Mark Bomback and Scott Frank
Set following the events of 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand and serving as something of a dovetail to the 2014 release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, director James Mangold’s The Wolverine is a different style of comic book movie—serious in tone with an art-house look and not populated by a plethora of superhero types.
