I was not impressed with the first trailer for “Logan”. While most were oohing and aahing over the so-called post-apocalyptic setting and the Western tone, I found it drab and unengaging. Well Twentieth Century Fox has put out a new trailer, and I dare say it’s looking a whole lot better. I still don’t buy into the setting, as it feels kinda blah, but if they can get me invested in the story of Logan and his ward, the young mutant X-23, then it doesn’t matter.
Here’s the official synopsis: “Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan as he cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout 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.”
“Logan” is directed by James Mangold and scripted by David James Kelly, and stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez. It premieres 3rd March.
