Even if The Wolverine doesn’t turn out to be a good movie, the Hugh Jackman spinoff-sequel-reboot has already made a contribution to film history with a series of cool film posters destined to adorn college dorms, gym locker rooms, and the desktop wallpaper of moody 14-year-olds across the country. Now comes a snazzy new poster for the film’s Japanese release, which features Logan holding a freshly-sliced sword, claws-out. The characters on either side of his head read “Death” and “Life.” Also, the word “Samurai” is written on the poster, lest we miss the point.
