The future of super-short teaser trailers is here. In just the past week, we’ve seen a number of stills for the upcoming X-Men spin-off drop on the web. But now, director James Mangold has tweeted a teaser for his Hugh Jackman-starring film,The Wolverine.
The twist? It was uploaded using Vine, the latest on-line app from Twitter that allows users to create looping videos that last only six seconds.

This marks the first time that a major studio release has used Vine to premiere footage of a tent pole release. Splicing together shots that seemingly last only a few nanoseconds, the teaser reveals few plot details, but it does hint at an appearance by Famke Janssen‘s Jean Grey who, SPOILER ALERT, went postal in the third X-Men film. Other than that, there are lots of shots showing Jackman looking buff, vicious and very angry.
So what do you make of the 6-second trailer? Did it pique your interest or did it simply give you motion sickness and a migraine?
