Some new footage from James Mangold’s The Wolverine has been released, along with some revealing interviews with the cast and crew explaining what we can expect from the latest X-Men spinoff.

Fittingly, the featurette is dubbed “A Ronin’s Story,” referring to the Japanese word for a samurai who has lost his lord or master and becomes directionless.

The new footage shows off some new action sequences, along with some character shots that tease a little more of Mangold’s darker tone. It looks good, and anything to differentiate this flick from the absolute mess that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a good thing. 

Check out the footage, spliced in with some interviews with Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, below: 

The Wolverine opens July 26. Do you plan on checking it out?
