The Wolverine is roaring towards its July 26 opening day, and director James Mangold has put the finishing touches on the movie. Mangold recently Tweeted that he was working hard to wrap up the last few details. Check out his Tweets below.
Last three days of mixing. Then we are done. I am exhausted but I will miss this team.

As of 1am, the mix is complete. FInished. The color is timed. Done. Titles. Check. 3D will take one more week. Sigh. Gonna lie down.On Monday (6-24-13), Collider unveiled another beautiful (and badass) poster, featuring Jean Grey -aka Pheonix (played by Famke Janssen). This is the latest in a series of great promotional images for The Wolverine. All the posters are done in the "sumi-e style" - yeah, I had to Google that, too - and they refer to the Japanese location of the film. If you want to see all the posters in the series, jump over to Capes on Tumblr.

It's interesting that Jean Grey has her own poster because it's assumed she's only appearing briefly (in a dream sequence). Do you think she might have a larger part in the story than we were lead to believe?
Finally, for a quick round-up of Wolverine news, watch the video below via ENTV. It shows more behind-the-scenes stuff and throws in a few cool scenes from the flick.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before. - 20th Century Fox
