There’s been some pretty good buzz about Logan, with some suggesting it’s nothing like we’ve seen – especially from the X-Men universe – and could be something genuinely special. The new trailer certainly lays it out there that this is a far cry from Days Of Future Past, Apocalypse, or even The Wolverine. But it does look like it might be good.
Here’s the short synopsis: ‘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.’
What that doesn’t quite get across is the rather bleak, western feel, an odd multi-generational dysfunctional family dynamic, and the fact that Patrick Stewart’s Professor X says ‘Fuck’ (we’d expect that from James Stewart’s young Xavier, but not Patrick’s!). The film’s out March 1st.
