With a month until the film's premiere, Fox has unleashed the first TV spots for "Logan," Hugh Jackman's ninth, and purportedly final, appearance as Wolverine.
The first paints the film's premise in broad strokes, establishing that mutants are all but gone, a girl is in danger, and -- thanks to some dialogue from Stephen Merchant's Caliban -- that Logan's healing factor is failing. "That's right," a grizzled Jackman says to the mirror, "I'm an old man."
The second promo opens on the now-familiar scene in the convenience store, where Dafne Keen's Laura (aka X-23) nearly kills a cashier, before cutting to footage that dramatically compares and contrasts her with Logan. "A Little Attitude ... Runs in the Family," reads the ad's tagline.
Directed by James Mangold, the film is set years after the epilogue of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” His healing factor failing, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But his attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Opening March 3, “Logan” also stars Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.
