When it comes to Disney characters, we are always in the market for weirdly amazing transformations. Whether it's a Grumpy Cat meme collision with the House of Mouse or the line-up of pretty ladies getting slothified and given historically accurate wardrobing or even the animated villains getting a Broadway-esque spotlight, we are soooooo in. Always.
Given that comics are a visual medium, you'd expect the posters for comic book movies would be really awesome. And sometimes, they totally are. Case in point: The poster for "The Wolverine," which cleverly uses traditional Japanese art techniques to create an indelible image.
But where does "The Wolverine" rank among the best superhero movie posters of all time?
Well, wonder no more, because we're delving into into our vast art archive to determine that very question. Get ready to feast your eyes on some truly super-powered posters.
Everyone loves a good superhero movie. But with all of these remakes, reboots, prequels and sequels (see: "Man of Steel", "The Amazing Spider-Man", "The Wolverine", this new "Batman vs. Superman" business, et al.), it seems as if we've been watching the same films over and over again, just with a different set of actors and a few tweaks here and there.
However, there is a reason why those big Hollywood execs think these movies are worth rebooting: because they're gonna sell. Audiences have come to idolize and identify with these iconic characters and their journeys — so much that we're willing to watch their stories get re-hashed on the big screen time and time again.
Artist Khoa Ho has beautifully captured this sense of timelessness in his new poster series, which is aptly titled "Trials of the Past." In these illustrations, Ho puts his own spin on the classic superheroes we've all come to know and love. Get More »
Hugh Jackman's "The Wolverine" was the only new major studio release of the weekend and as a result it easily won the box office according to Film.com, raking in an estimated $55 million.
That was more than enough to beat last week's champion, "The Conjuring," which slipped to second place despite holding strong with a solid $22.1 million in its second weekend of release. Otherwise, it was pretty much same old, same old at the cineplex, with family friendly fare like "Despicable Me 2," "Turbo" and "Grown Ups 2" rounding out the top five.
For a full look at the box office top ten, including figures for the acclaimed indie drama "Fruitvale Station," head to Film.com.
As an actor, when you play the same character approximately 37,653 times (margin of error +/- 37,648), you're bound to give that character some of the same mannerisms over the course of its movie lifetime.
Hugh Jackman (and each movie's writer and director, I guess) decided that Wolverine likes to scream. A lot. Like, a lot a lot. As compiled by our compadres at Vulture, embedded is a supercut of Wolverine screaming and shouting and hollering and grunting, a 1:17 video of which I could only reach the :54 second mark without having to give my ears a one minute break.

Greetings from the apocalypse! Woody Allen may have been cracking wise with that quote, but when it comes to Wolverine, eternity is no laughing matter. Somehow this weekend has found a way to include both in your moviegoing diet, so let's feast, shall we? Get More »
If you feel like Hugh Jackman has committed a whole lot of his life to occupying Wolverine's rugged, impenetrable skin, it's not just your imagination. "The Wolverine" marks the sixth time Jackman is wielding those claws — and considering he's set to reprise the role again in the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past," he shows no signs of ending his mutant run any time soon.

You know that "From Hell," "Watchmen," "V For Vendetta" and, hell, even "Road to Perdition" and "A History of Violence" are based on graphic novels. But did you know that the likes of "Citizen Kane" and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" also sprung from the four-color funny papers?
(Okay, they didn't really, but it's fun to imagine if they were, along with Orson Welles' epic indignity toward it all.) Designs by Old Red Jalopy.
When Hollywood dishes out big bucks to make a brand name movie, there are generally some huge expectations. Sequels! Toys! A themed ride at Universal Studios!
But when that movie alienates fanboys, draws the ire of critics, is generally a pile of crap, and, most importantly, fails to make enough cash money, all bets are off. And usually, instead of humanely laying an ill-received film to rest, the powers that be beg audiences for another shot at a franchise — henceforth known as a "movie mulligan." Get More »
Mutants: There sure are a sh*tload of them. Just check out any "X-Men" movie and you'll realize that, statistically speaking, just about every other person you know would have to secretly be a mutant in order for there to be that darn many of them. And the other half of the people on Earth? Apparently all secret agents, robots from the future or Stan Lee. Weird is the new normal. Get More »
