Comic book hero Wolverine got a six-second teaser trailer on Twitter’s Vine, a “tweaser” that pushes the limits of how movie trailer brevity. Director James Mangold joked on Twitter: “I think teasers are going to keep getting shorter and shorter and shorter until they become one sheets.”

As the Les Miserables musical hit theaters this holiday, Hugh Jackman drew fans among tweens, compelling one Slate reporter to ask this question: “is Jean Valjean a superhero?”
Here’s more from Slate: “For one thing, Valjean (pictured, via) has super strength—the strength of ‘four men,’ as Victor Hugo tells us.

A film adaptation of Lisa See‘s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan will hit theaters in July 15th. The official trailer is embedded above–what do you think?
In an essay about the writing the book, See explained: “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a story about friendship and what it means to be a woman. Yes, our lives are completely different from those lived by the nu shu writers, but inside we are the same. We want people to hear our thoughts, appreciate our creativity, and feel empathy for our emotions.” (via Shelf Awareness)
