Clocking in at TV spot number 33 (!), the bite-sized promo focuses on the opening segment of James Mangold’s critically-adorned thriller, when James Howlett is simply trying to make ends meet as a limousine driver. It’s a miserable life for Hugh Jackman’s world-weary mutant, and it’s small wonder why Wolverine’s signature temper gets the better of him just as today’s new promo closes out. That being said, the teaser is more of a cheeky wink to Logan‘s forthcoming box office tussle with Beauty and the Beast than anything else, so you needn’t worry too much about spoilers.
In related news, yesterday brought forth a fresh wave of concept art for the R-rated actioner, while our recent feature took a closer look at the restricted rating and why studios are beginning to warm to the idea of engineering superhero (anti-hero?) movies for adult audiences following the back-to-back success of Deadpool and Logan. The former was successful enough to spawn a sequel, and though it encountered some turbulence early on in pre-production, Deadpool 2 is beginning to make serious headway after drafting in Zazie Beetz to play kick-ass mercenary Domino.
Logan is screening in theaters across the globe right now. Box Office Mojo places its current worldwide haul just north of $457 million going into this coming weekend, and though it’ll face stiff competition from both Beauty and the Beast (March 17th) and Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island, if Wolverine’s final stand finishes its theatrical run in the region of $550 million or more, it’ll be considered a resounding success.
