Animated covers are the rage lately, with a number of recent mixtapes and albums taking advantage of the .gif format to add a new dynamic to the imagery artists are using to symbolise their work. With the latest poster from The Wolverine, movies appear next to take the step into motion.

The poster shows a rain-drenched Logan deep in thought, holding a samurai sword with the colourful Tokyo skyline in the background and a dark and dreary tone that sets the feel of the film.

As reported earlier with the first poster, the James Mangold-directed film will see our clawed anti-hero travel to Japan to face a shrouded figure from his past, in a plot based on Frank Miller and Chris Claremont’s Wolverine 1982 limited series.
