A new international poster for The Wolverine - in standard and motion formats - has been unveiled by Twentieth Century Fox.

Hugh Jackman is seen shirtless and crouching on a building overlooking Tokyo, while holding a samurai sword as well as displaying one set of claws.

Both versions are included here. The rather stylish motion poster, which adds flashes of lightning and the sound and movement of rain, is included below.

The poster brings to mind some imagery from the Dark Knight and Spider-Man films where the heroes stand on rooftop projections looking over the city but, whatever the influences or similarities, it's a striking, atmospheric and enigmatic image.

The film, starring Hugh Jackman and directed by James Mangold, opens in cinemas around the world (in 2D and 3D) on July 25, 2013.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan.
