PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Wolverine comes to Japan to meet an old friend whose life he saved years ago, and gets embroiled in a conspiracy involving yakuza and mutants.
Hugh Jackman said that for his shirtless scenes in this movie, he wanted to look "as ripped and cut as possible." So he adopted a dehydration diet (used in bodybuilding) where he did not consume any liquid for thirty-six hours before filming his shirtless shots. He said it made him feel "headachy" and faint, but he was pleased with the results, as dehydrating tightened everything up, and gave him the exaggerated muscle definition and vascularity that he wanted to show in his shirtless scenes.
You! Go! Go!
Logan: That was a B-29, bub. There's no outrunning what's coming. You're better off down here. I'd hurry if I were you.
(at around 1h 12 mins) When Logan and Mariko spend the night at the Nagasaki house, it is pouring rain most of the night. The next morning when Logan exits the house to find Mariko (and subsequently chase after her kidnappers), the ground is completely dry, not even a puddle is seen.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: as Wolverine enters an airport security check, he comes face to face with Magneto and Professor X, who request his assistance for a new threat to mutants. This leads into X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
Forthcoming Blu-ray release will feature an extended director's cut.
