6: ‘The Wolverine’ Starring Hugh Jackman




The-Wolverine-Poster-Hugh-JackmanThis week on Reel Spoilers we sharpen our claws on The Wolverine. Get it? Because Wolverine has claws. That’s a little comic book humor for you. You’re welcome.

Read our review of The Wolverine.

This time out filmmakers added the word “The” to the title in an effort to class up the joint. It also means that all those times you forced your mother to talk about the X-Men and she attached a “the” to “Wolverine” have been made retroactively correct. Now you just need Led Zeppelin to do the same. I just hope you weren’t a fan of “The The”. That would have been maddening.

Also, Kevin gives us a box office report, Dan brings us a Video Recovery and we discover that After Earth may actually turn a profit.

You’ve been warned.
