Hugh Jackman, returning for his sixth appearance as Logan/Wolverine, wields a sword on the same rain-drenched Japanese street seen in the poster released earlier this week.
James Mangold's film, which is based on Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's 1982 limited comic series, sees an "isolated" Logan journeying to Japan to confront a figure from his past.
Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee round out the film's supporting cast.
The long-awaited first trailer for The Wolverine debuted online today (March 27).
