Well, that didn’t take long. Hot off the heels of the rather bumpy leaked trailer, 20th Century Fox has now released the official trailer for Wolverine’s third solo outing, Logan. Keep in mind, however, that the official trailer is no less bleak than the leaked moments. Take a look.
Damn. If you don’t have chills after that one, you may be a mutant, yourself. Johnny Cash’s cover of ‘Hurt’ is the perfect backdrop to the trailer, which features a much older, much more broken Logan than audiences have seen in the past. The trailer plays the film as almost a gritty drama, in which an old soldier past his prime is called back to the field for one last mission and, really, isn’t that exactly what a film paying tribute to ‘Old Man Logan’ should be?
There is no denying that there will be some brutal fight scenes in the film and the trailer gives fans just a brief taste of that brutality; enough to whet the appetites of Wolverine fans everywhere. Sure, it’s only a few moments of the film and it is always best to reserve judgement until the final product is unveiled but in addition to the action, the acting and the story itself definitely seem to point to Logan being one of the best superhero films to date. Let’s hope it can live up to its potential.
What do you think of the trailer? Do you have an ‘Old Man Logan’ scene you hope makes it into the film?
