TM and © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation(LOS ANGELES) — 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Logan, Hugh Jackman’s superhero swan song as the X-Man also known as Wolverine, and it seems to reflect Deadpool‘s R-rated influence.The movie takes place after the other installments in the X-Men franchise, with both Logan and Patrick Stewart’s character Professor Xavier mere shells of their formerly-powerful mutant selves, in hiding near the Mexican border. According to a synopsis tweeted by Jackman himself, “Logan’s attempt to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”The young mutant is a girl named Laura, whose youth is a stark contrast to the fact she shares many of Logan’s powers, like an unbreakable adamantium skeleton and razor sharp claws. The “dark forces” are apparently The Reavers, a group of mutant hunters led by a cyborg played by Narcos‘ Boyd Holbrook.In the snippet, set to Kaleo’s “Way Down We Go,” we see Laura shoplifting at a gas station convenience store, until a clerk makes the mistake of scolding her for it. We then learn the little girl — also known as X-23 — also inherited Logan’s temper, flipping the poor guy and almost running him through until Logan stops her.The heroes on the run exist in a world where the exploits of the mutants have been immortalized in comics, but as Logan explains — and the trailer demonstrates with R-rated levels of violence — that “in the real world, people die.”Two versions of the trailer exist, one of which also makes use of the more adult rating’s freedom from language restrictions. Even Professor X drops an F-bomb in the uncensored version tweeted by Fox Thursday morning.The movie, from Oscar winner James Mangold, who directed The Wolverine, opens February 3. Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
