"Something's happening to you, Logan," Caliban (played by Stephen Merchant) says in the first of two new television spots. "You're not healing."
Up until now, we had only seen Caliban — whose mutant ability allows him to track other mutants — in official stills and one frame of footage from a trailer that was released a couple of weeks ago, so it's nice to finally hear him speak.
Aside from that, that TV spot also includes a few new action shots and new dialogue from Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Logan (Hugh Jackman). Professor X says, "She needs help. Where we're going, there are more of them." Logan looks into a mirror and says, "Last ride" and "Old man."
The second spot ends with new Xavier and Logan exchange.
Xavier says, "She can learn to be better."
"Better than me?" Logan asks.
Xavier replies, "Actually, yes!"
In 2024 the mutant population has shrunk significantly and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of the ailing old Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a female stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first he refuses, but the Professor has been waiting for a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation; this is because her DNA contains the secret that connects her to Logan. A relentless pursuit begins … In this third cinematic outing featuring the Marvel comic book character Wolverine we see the superheroes beset by everyday problems. They are ageing, ailing and struggling to survive financially. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. It would appear that in the near-future, the times in which they were able put the world to rights with razor sharp claws and telepathic powers are now over.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (Logan), Boyd Holbrook (Donald Pierce), Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier), Dafne Keen (Laura Kinney/X-23), Doris Morgado (Maria), Stephen Merchant (Caliban), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Gabriela), and Richard E. Grant (Dr. Zander Rice). James Mangold is directing and helped on the screenplay along with Scott Frank and Michael Green.
Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
