Disney are without a doubt one of the biggest companies in the world of entertainment, and the titans behind-the-scenes are looking to expand on that even more if recent reports are to be believed.

Hugh Jackman James Mangold X-Men

So James Mangold's The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, wasn't really that bad in the end. There was brief couple of days when Rotten Tomatoes was filling up with a flurry of bad reviews for the X-Men movie, though the heavyweight critics gave Jackman and company the benefit of the doubt.

During its opening weekend at the box-office, the movie took a modest $55 million (despite estimates of $80 million) though pulled in $86.1 million internationally to comfortably recoup its budget. In other words, from now on everything that The Wolverine pulls in at the cinema and on DVD and BluRay is pure profit. In other, other, words - it's all been a rather big success.

The Wolverine - TV Spot


Logan is the mutant Wolverine who, along with a skeleton of adamantium, retractable claws and heightened senses, possesses a healing power that renders him ageless and immortal. To most, this would be a gift, but to Logan it is the biggest curse he could possibly suffer following the death of his beloved Jean Grey and his isolation from other mutants. He is visited by Mariko Yashida who takes him to Japan where her employer insists on repaying him for saving his life many years ago. Logan is offered the chance to surrender his life-saving powers in order for him to live out his life and take comfort in its natural end but, when it comes down to it, it may not have the consequences he hoped for as he is once again deceived and forced to fight to defend the name of the X-Men. Only this time, his chances are running out.

Carrying on from events in 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand', 'The Wolverine' returns in a more intense and testing story than ever before. It is the sequel to the 'X-Men' film series based on the Marvel comic books by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller and has been directed by James Mangold ('Girl, Interrupted', 'Walk the Line', 'Cop Land') who also co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Bomback ('Total Recall', 'Die Hard 4.0'), Scott Frank ('Minority Report', 'Marley & Me') and Christopher McQuarrie ('The Usual Suspects', 'The Tourist'). It will come to UK cinemas everywhere on July 15th 2013.

The Australian actor who earned an Oscar nomination for Les Miserables feared he had broken his neck during a scene in which his character swings out of a train carriage. Though his injuries weren’t severe, it was enough to concern wife Deborra-lee Furness who made him reassess the amount of dangerous work he performs himself.

“In the film, there's a scene where I swing from inside to outside a train and my neck got caught. I thought I had broken it.
