First Trailer for Logan Shows X-23

The trailer gods are smiling upon us this week! 20th Century FOX dropped the first trailer for Logan earlier this morning, and we now have so many feelings. True to Hugh Jackman’s claim, the trailer shows a more intimate (but still action-packed) scale, focusing more on the characters than an epic, city-leveling battle for the world.

Logan takes place in an indeterminate future, where we see an older, scarred and bleeding Wolverine (Jackman) isolated in the wilderness. It’s obvious his healing factor isn’t what it used to be, and we’re shown a Logan who looks every bit as tired of life as he’s probably felt internally for years. He’s still in contact with a very aged Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), and we learn a bombshell bit of news when Logan tells Professor X that “all the other mutants, they’re gone.” Well, so much for X-Men: Days of Future Past changing that outcome.

We’re also treated to our first glimpse of Laura Kinney aka X-23 (Sienna Novikov). It’s a wink and a nod for comic readers when Charles tells Logan she’s a lot like him. The rest of the trailer manages to squeeze out a surprising amount of poignancy from overlaying the visual action with Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ song ‘Hurt.’ While the song has approached “so overplayed and overused it’s bordering on cliche territory,” Cash’s grizzled, melancholy voice perfectly parallels Logan’s final journey as he tries to right one last wrong with Charles before fading into the sunset.

Watch the trailer below in its entirety and sound off on your thoughts. Are you sad to see Jackman’s last ride as Wolverine? Excited for X-23? Let us know! Logan comes out in theaters March 3, 2017.
