Screen Rant received a press release with a cool preview image (as seen above) for the upcoming movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The purpose of the release was to let everyone know that Fox will be debuting three brand new trailers next week starting on Sunday, each a full 60-seconds long.
In addition to that, several exclusive images were sent out to IGN, Coming Soon and Latino Review and we collected them here for you.
But first, here is the focus of the press release:
Beginning Sunday, viewers across the nation can witness the origins of one of the year’s most anticipated movies, when Twentieth Century Fox debuts an exclusive, three-part exclusive reveal of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE on FOX.
For this unprecedented promotional event – which is too big for one night – the studio has created three special sixty-second spots, one leading into the next, and which together form a narrative. The first spot airs this Sunday (February 15) on “Family Guy,” the second on Monday (Feb. 16) on “House,” and the third on Tuesday (Feb. 17) on “American Idol.”
After the broadcasts, the three spots will be released online.
X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, unites Wolverine with several other legends of the X-Men universe, in an epic revolution that pits the mutants against powerful forces determined to eliminate them.
Hugh Jackman, who reprises the role that made him a superstar, is joined by Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Dominic Monaghan, and Ryan Reynolds, as well as Taylor Kitsch, will.i.am, and Lynn Collins. Gavin Hood directs from a screenplay by David Benioff and Skip Woods (writing credit not yet final). The producers are Lauren Shuler Donner, Ralph Winter, Hugh Jackman, and John Palermo.
I can’t wait to see more for this movie as it’s one of Screen Rant‘s and my most anticipated movies of the year – We’ll have the trailers up for you as soon as they are made available online.
While you wait for the new trailers, here are the new images for you (click on them for larger format):
The quality of these three images match that of a volunteer photoshop contest or some very early green-screening work – In my mind, they don’t do much to help promote the movie. I hope the trailers will fix that.
It’s cool seeing the characters in action shots but couldn’t they do better? I’m disappointed. Notice, there’s no love for Deadpool yet? My prediction is that they’re saving him and his full costume reveal till later.
What do you think of the images?
X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens May 1, 2009.
