‘Logan’ Super Bowl Trailer Delivers with Grace

‘Logan’ Super Bowl Trailer Delivers with Grace

Fans and viewers alike were treated to some fun, exciting, and enticing movie trailers during Super Bowl 51. One such trailer was for Fox’s newest X-Men release, Logan. The trailer continues the earlier post-apocalyptic feel, and starts out eerily with a young girl singing Amazing Grace. Logan (Hugh Jackman) is clearly hurting, broken and seemingly on the run — all while taking care of an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart). The music chosen is appropriate as we are introduced once again to X-23 (aka Laura Kinney, played by Dafne Keen), a girl who may be the key to saving the world and who is a lot like Wolverine, in both attitude and abilities. In the 30 second trailer we are also gifted with a short blip from Caliban (Stephen Merchant), who doesn’t look like he’s in good straits, and a quick but rather violent look at cyborg Daniel Pierce (Boyd Holbrook).

There is absolutely no dialog in this trailer, either, a marked distinction from the previous trailers which gave us the “Someone HAS come along” quote. This isn’t the first time a Logan trailer uses music rather effectively to make a point. The first Logan trailer used Johnny Cash’s remake of Hurt (originally by Nine Inch Nails/Trent Reznor) while portraying Logan going through a slew of emotions and fighting enemies and his own demons.

The official Logan website sums up the movie thusly, “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.” And it seems the trailers have definitely given us a peek into that bleak world.

Logan rides that beat up limousine into UK theaters starting March 1, 2017 and US theaters on March 3, 2017.
