Best of the Super Bowl Spots: The “Amazing Grace” of Logan
Last night's epic Super Bowl featured the greatest comeback in the history of the title game (of course orchestrated by the Patriots' Tom Brady) and a slew of great new trailers for some of 2017's most highly anticipated films. We've already shared the spots for Transformers: Last Knight and Ghost in the Shell, which were both teased last week. Now we're going through the rest of the Super Bowl spots one-by-one, starting with this fierce bit of business for Logan.
As we've written before, Logan is supposedly Hugh Jackman's last turn as Wolverine, after a fantastic 16 year run. We say supposedly because of the chance that Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool team will convince Jackman (and coordinate his busy schedule) to appear in alongside the Merc with the Mouth in an upcoming crossover film. Short of this happening, however, Logan will really be Jackman's last time donning the claws.
Set to "Amazing Grace," the teaser is a wordless wonder. We see a severely diminished Wolverine, an ailing Professor X and the new kid on the block, the ferocious X-23 as they're all being chased by an organization determined to bring the remaining mutants to heel.
"Amazing Grace" is not the first classic tune to appear in a Logan trailer or teaser; Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" and Kaleo’s "Way Down We Go" have been featured before. All have been very effective.
Logan hits theaters on March 3rd.
