Hugh Jackman confirmed on having discussions with director James Mangold about test screening a PG-13 rated cut and an R rated cut, but did not comment on filming sequences for them. Although the film was confirmed to be rated PG-13 via a tweet from James Mangold saying "it's PG-13, but don't worry, it ain't Bambi (1942)." An unrated/extended cut is confirmed exclusively for the 3D BLU-RAY release. See more »

James Mangold directed this sixth "X-Men" entry, though the second to focus primarily on Wolverine(Hugh Jackman) which is set after the events of 'The Last Stand', as Wolverine, now living a nomadic existence in the wilderness, is located by a Japanese woman who tells him that a (now) wealthy Japanese man whose life he had saved in WWII(when the two atom bombs were dropped) is now dying, and wants to repay his life debt by offering him a chance to relinquish his immortality by transferring it to him through a new process. Wolverine respectfully refuses, but events spiral out-of-control as someone wants the man's daughter and heir dead, and also wants Wolverine's healing power, which threatens his indestructibility... Hugh Jackman is more than capable of carrying this interesting picture alone with nice Japan locations and story, which will push him in a new direction, and(if you stay through the end credits) into his next "X-Men" adventure.
