The new trailer for “Logan” gives fans a much longer look into the relationship between the title character and Dafne Keen’s X-23.
In the film, Logan is living in a self-imposed exile with Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), while his mutant healing abilities are in severe decline. As we saw in the first poster and trailer, he now bears several large scars due to the deterioration of his powers.
But his solitude is interrupted by the arrival of a young girl (Keen), who possesses powers shockingly similar to Logan’s. When an army of mercenaries shows up to take her back, Logan and Professor X must take her on the road to keep her safe.
The third Wolverine movie also stars Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.
Jackman first played the character in 2000’s “X-Men” and reprised the role in subsequent sequels, as well as standalone films “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.” He has previously stated that this movie will be the last time he’ll play the character.
James Mangold directed the film, reuniting with Jackman following their work on “The Wolverine.” This will be the first R-rated film in the “X-Men” franchise.
“Logan” will be released in theaters on March 3.
