It’s been a good day for trailer fans! Following the release of the second trailer for ‘Power Rangers’ (here) 20th Century Fox has dropped the second trailer for ‘Logan’.

Just last week director James Mangold revealed an official synopsis for the film which read:

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.

Speaking with the press following the release of the trailer Mangold discussed the decision to set the film in 2029.

“It’s the year 2029 when the movie takes place, there’s an epilogue scene in Days of Future Past which is 2024, or 2023, something like that.  I just wanted to get far enough past. My goal was real simple: it was to pick a time where I had enough elbow room that I was clear of existing entanglements. Part of the way I think these films stop being fresh (these films being franchise comic book movies) is when you find yourself making essentially a television series with $200 million episodes where you’re literally just picking up where the last one left off and you’re making a mini-series. Then, it’s impossible to do something fresh, meaning essentially you’re just a director on the 14th episode of a television show picking up where the last one left off and people are going to be really startled by any discontinuity or changes.”

The new trailer features a lot more of the action from the film but also showcases its brilliant humour. There’s no denying that these trailers prove why ‘Logan’ is a cut above other comic book films. Interestingly an ‘X-Men’ comic is even part of the story so it will be interesting to see what has changed since 2023.

New character X-23 is also fully on show in the trailer finally giving fans a glimpse of her claws and her tempter.

Here’s the US version of the trailer:

As if one trailer wasn’t enough an international version has also been released featuring more action shots:

‘Logan’ stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez & Richard E. Grant. The film is directed by James Mangold and scripted by David James Kelly.

‘Logan’ arrives in cinemas on March 3, 2017.
