20th Century Fox is poised to cap off its marketing spiel for James Mangold’s Logan with a second and seemingly final trailer. It’ll claw its way online tomorrow, January 19 – and come in two distinct versions, according to TrailerTrack – and to ensure excitement remains at a fever-pitch, the latest image for Mangold’s superhero threequel has found its way online.
It’s by no means as crisp and clear as previous portraits of Hugh Jackman’s anti-hero, but it does give us another look at his glowering, world-weary Wolverine ahead of his much-anticipated swan song. What’s more, the pic appears to be taken from the film’s funeral scene glimpsed in previous trailers, though we’ll surely find out much more come tomorrow.
Dragged out of his self-imposed exile by the fresh-faced Laura (AKA X-23), Logan is rooted in a dystopian future wherein the mutant population is beginning to wane. Hunted to the point of extinction, Jackman’s title lead – along with both Dafne Keen’s Laura and the ailing Professor X – will go up against Boyd Holbrook and his assembly of Reavers, not to mention the “dark forces” emanating from the nefarious Transgien corporation.
The official Logan synopsis teases as much, too: “In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
Also starring Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is expected to make its theatrical bow on March 3, 2017. The final trailer should be with us tomorrow, January 19, and we’ll have a full breakdown for you here on We Got This Covered the moment it goes live.
