Holy. Fucking. Shit. You guys.
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen! We now (finally) have a trailer for “Logan”, AKA “Wolverine 3” for those who maybe didn’t know. And I got a few things to say here. So without further ado, let’s talk about it.
So this is basically the “Old Man Logan” story, only with way less Marvel characters because rights and shit. But it of course follows Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) as he is broken, beat, and scarred (thank you, Metallica). Thi is a story set further into the future and it follows Logan as he goes through one last “adventure” with a broken Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and a little girl (Sienna Novikov). I of course put quotation marks around the word adventure because this shit is serious. From the tone conveyed through the directing and the acting, to the song used being “Hurt” by Johnny Cash. Seriously, this is some heavy stuff that of course will have some badass action in it. So what do I like about it? Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, always reliable for good performances, and this trailer shows it. I also like what I see in terms of the action we get in this trailer. I am also glad that they got James Mangold to direct this one, because he i a fantastic director. From the really good “Walk the Line”, to the fantastic “3:10 to Yuma”, to “The Wolverine” in 2013. I am also interested to see what they’ll do with this since it’s confirmed to be Rated R. Wolverine is a violent character, so an R-rating for a gritty “Old Man Logan” type story makes a lot of sense actually. I also think it’s a bit funny how the trailer song is Johnny Cash’s version of “Hurt”, since James Mangold directed “Walk the Line” which is a movie about Johnny Cash. Besides that, I am excited! This movie looks great, and I am definitely going to go see this when it comes out. “Logan” is set to come out in early March of 2017.
So what are your thoughts? Are you guys looking forward to “Logan”? And what’s your favorite James Mangold movie? Leave any and all answers in the comments!
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
