An unfortunate truth about marketing a big-budget Hollywood action film is that many times, the commercial tie-ins make little sense - as is the case with the tie-in from X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Papa John's Pizza. On the plus side, those tie-ins often give us the chance to see sneak peeks of the film, and that is precisely the case with this film. A new extended clip from the film has now come our way, thanks to the pizza franchise.
It's a scene that we've seen in most of the trailers, featuring Wolverine on a motorcycle and his battle against a helicopter, but this gives us a longer look at the scene, including finding out just what happens to your military helicopter when Marvel's deadliest mutant hero lands on top of it.
Leading up to the events of X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the story of Wolverine's epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe. The movie stars Hugh Jackman, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, will.i.am, Dominic Monaghan, and Daniel Henney.
