Hugh Jackman has shared a new poster for his final Wolverine film installment, Logan. The poster came with the simple caption, “Sunset,” and it’s obvious why. This next Wolverine film feels and looks like a hardcore gritty western and what’s a western without a hero walking off into the sunset.
It was reported yesterday that a second trailer is expected to hit sometime around January 16th. I hope it’s true because then it will give us something exciting to look forward to. When previously talking about Logan, Jackman said:
“It’s essential you see this as the story of a man who is struggling with mortality and legacy, and whether the world has been better off with him or without him.”
The film is going to tell a very powerful story of redemption, and I’m excited to see how that story all comes together.
Logan takes place in the year 2024…Old Man Logan is in full effect. Logan looks bad, and drinks a lot. For work, he drives a 2024 Chrysler 300 limo that looks modified in the front to look more futuristic. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly — and sometimes not at all.
In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. We find out about a government-type operation called “Transigen” that is turning mutant children into killing machines. Logan ends up mentoring the girl, who has two claws instead of his three.
The movie will be released in theaters on March 3, 2017. For more information on the film, click here.
