Logan (aka Wolverine – Hugh Jackman) takes places in the near future, where the aging Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the always-old Professor X (Patrick Stewart) have to protect a young female clone of Wolverine, Laura Kinney, from an evil organisation led by a man called Nathanial Essex.
At this point in time, Logan’s healing abilities are regressing, while Xavier is suffering from Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
Directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine, Knight and Day), the film also stars Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant, Richard E Grant and ER‘s Eriq La Salle. Wonder if he’ll do that air-fist-punch thing in the film, like he did in the ER opening credits? Probably not.
However, is this the final X-Men-specific film? Well, I think we’ve had of them enough by now.
Either way, enjoy Johnny Cash‘s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Hurt, even if it is a bit truncated in this version.
Naturally, I’ll go and see Logan when it’s released in the UK on March 2nd, 2017, one day ahead of the US.
