Check Out An Extended Clip of the Bullet Train Fight Sequence in ‘The Wolverine’

By July 8, 2013

James Mangold is taking The Wolverine very seriously. The director is well aware of the terrible reaction of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and is working hard to make it known that his movie has nothing to do with that one. Set after the events of X-Men 3, The Wolverine is based on the acclaimed 1980s comic run from Frank Miller and Chris Claremont which takes Logan to Japan and questions his immortality.

Mangold has gone on record saying he doesn’t like it when big budget Hollywood movies throw lots of loud and fast-moving things together and expect to get their money back. He values story and character over action, but since this is ultimately a summer superhero film, we’re going to get our fair share of action scenes mixed in there, too. One of the highlights of the trailer is a sequence that sees Wolverine fighting on top of a moving bullet train, and now an extended clip has been released that gives you a better sense of the physics of that fight. What happens to bodies when they’re brawling at 300 miles per hour? Watch the clip to find out.

The Wolverine opens on July 26th.
