James Mangold‘s Logan (2017) movie trailer stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, and Stephen Merchant. Logan‘s plot synopsis: “Set in the future, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is bent on destroying the world. With Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget, Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.”
This film looks great, fundamentally different from all the other Wolverine films that came before. The first stand-alone Wolverine (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) film was garbage and its follow-up (The Wolverine) was distilled and purified garbage.
The tone of the Logan trailer and Johnny Cash music playing over it were excellent. It made the film seem like something other than a superhero film. This is the closest that a Wolverine film has come to capturing what makes Unbreakable and The Crow wonderful films. Both of those films were about the human condition. They weren’t about showing off mutant powers, explosions, quips, and setting up sequels. They were self-contained stories, written to be a single serving and excellent.
That could be Logan, if this trailer truly advertises what the film is (without creative trailer editing and manipulation).
There is a lot of blood shown in this trailer, on objects not splashing out, so I am guessing that the film has a R-rating. That is supposition at this point. The MPAA has not rated the film yet.
Logan also stars Dafne Keen, Sienna Novikov, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Dave Davis, Eriq La Salle, Julia Holt, Lauren Gros, Elise Neal, Juan Gaspard, and Jaden Francis.
