Movie Trailer Review: Logan

The final installment in the Wolverine movies has released a second trailer. Starring Hugh Jackman as Logan, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and Dafne Keen as X-23.

IMDB Storyline: 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.

Seeing Wolverine as a caretaker for Professor X is interesting enough but to add in a little girl at least makes the movie more appealing. The first trailer was a bit sketchy but the second trailer appears to explain the premise a bit more and allows for the viewer to become more invested in the final movie. The fact that the girl is basically Wolverine in a nicer package should make for a good installment. Although after reading that last sentence makes one wonder if this is their way of bringing a new spin to the Wolverine franchise by making her female and now you can appeal to a younger audience. The potential for more money from the series is just a pen-stroke away.

The movie is slated for a March 3rd, 2017 release with an estimated budget of $127,000,000. As it is the last one and is a Wolverine movie, it should easily make the budget back.

  1. Given this is Hugh Jackman's last ride, it would be a fan's hope that they would finally show him in the classic Yellow and Black costume, especially since it was going to be originally teased in The Wolverine (the director of The Wolverine is also directing Logan).
    But I noticed a couple scenes that seem to hint that we're going to get the suit, that makes this more than wishful thinking. At :30 of the trailer (using the Red-Banded trailer for use), Logan says that X-23 is an X-Men fan, showing a comic book adventure based on one of the adventures in the film world. We get a full-shot of it at :34 and there's a couple noteworthy things (picture for reference).
    It's a very modern-looking Storm, not unlike the Storm that was introduced in X-Men Apocalypse. Which means that not only is this comic made specifically for the film, but that the new X-Men team in Apocalypse will interact and go on missions with Logan EDIT: and that he gets the costume from the previous timeline.
    Another sign is that Wolverine's eyes aren't pure white. In fact we can see them... just like you could from that originally teased costume, which looks very much like the one in the comic.
    We can gauge that while she is a brute-force killer, she looks up to the X-Men, and likely wants to be like them, which is hard, given the setting and story of Logan. This is reinforced at 1:30, where Logan says he isn't what she think he is, and that's likely a hero/ a good man.
    My theory: After some-time of bonding, X-23 will likely be captured and/or there will be that classic 3rd-act confrontation which will lead to the two getting angry at one-another and separate, where then Logan will put on the suit to show that he's still that hero he once was, likely during the final confrontation with the villain. It's simple, easy, works well with the plot and characters, and is a great way to send off Jackman's Wolverine.
    Curious to see what you guys think.

    1. Hi Colin,

      Thank you for your awesome comment. Great points and I hope for the more classic costume. If this is truly the last one then they should throw fans a bone.
