Attention spans are shorter than ever. They’re so short that 20th Century Fox has rolled out what is likely the first-ever Vine-length trailer for the upcoming blockbuster, “The Wolverine.”

It’s not surprising that this is happening what with the popularity of short moving images and clips, aka GIFs. Remember those GIF movie posters for “Looper”?
