"It's 100 percent undiluted Wolverine," director James Mangold (the very underrated "3:10 To Yuma") said in yesterday's Live Chat about 20th Century Fox's "The Wolverine." An interesting, surprisingly informative and thoughtful conversation between Mangold and his star Hugh Jackman, while the duo were in part-salesman mode -- letting the geek constituents hear what they wanted to hear -- the hopeful point of the discussion seemed to be selling fans on everything "The Wolverine" isn't.

Things in the movie world don't happen in a vacuum, and with James Mangold and Hugh Jackman taking part in an online Q&A today, followed by an unveiling of a new teaser poster for "The Wolverine," it's probably a safe bet some kind of teaser trailer will be dropping later this week. But you gotta start somewhere...

Jean Grey or not Jean Grey? That is the question. With rumors landing a few days ago that Famke Janssen shot a cameo in "The Wolverine," the presumption was that the film would precede the "X-Men" trilogy of pictures. But the answer to that presumption is an emphatic "no" from director James Mangold.

As the fall movie season has heated up, we've examined a number of the high profile titles of the next few months, taking a look so far at "Lincoln," 'Skyfall," "Flight," "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Django Unchained," with verdicts on the first three having already come in (you can now read our reviews of the Spielberg, the Bond and the Zemeckis). With November's movies present and accounted for, we're now looking a little further into the future, with one of the Christmas Day releases -- "Les Misérables."

After enduring some delays and the exit of original director Darren Aronofsky, lensing finally got underway at the end of the summer for "The Wolverine." And while there have been some pretty weak sauce set photos and videos thus far, 20th Century Fox have unveiled the first official image of Hugh Jackman as everyone's favorite mutant, and it looks appropriately raw.

Around this time last year, "Butter," directed by Jim Field Smith from a Black List-approved screenplay by Jason Micallef, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally warm reviews. The film, which takes place in the highly specific world of professional butter carving (not that cliché again) and stars Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman, is finally slated to begin its theatrical rollout very soon. In anticipation of said release, a brand new clip has hit the Internet, courtesy of the exclamation-point-heavy Entertainment Tonight site. And it features Hugh Jackman being goofy and Southern. So, of course, we love it.

Even though the politically minded Weinstein Company comedy "Butter" didn't exactly light up the film festival circuit last year, this writer, for one, is still mildly intrigued. A political satire using a butter sculpting competition in Iowa to lampoon the 2008 political race between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, a lot of critics have compared Jennifer Garner's uptight character in the film to House of Representatives Republican Michelle Bachman, and that should at least be worthy of some laughs, no?

Lee Daniels & Hugh Jackman Will Try Teaming Again On MLK Assassination Film 'Orders To Kill'

Try as they might, so far, Lee Daniels and Hugh Jackman just haven't been able to make a movie together. Over two years ago, the actor was lining up to play segregation enforcer Sheriff Jim Clark in the director's civil rights tale "Selma," which never was able to get in front of cameras. And then, earlier this year, Jackman was sought out for a role in Daniels' currently shooting "The Butler" but it never worked out due to "The Wolverine" schedule, which is also rolling in front of cameras at the moment. But by golly, they're hoping the third time's the charm.

That was quick! Less than week after Jessica Biel had apparently signed on to play the villaness Viper in James Mangold's upcoming "The Wolverine" starring Hugh Jackman, the guys over at Collider are now reporting that "talks have broken down between Biel and 20th Century Fox" with the studio now moving on and "talking to other actresses."
