The ‘Logan’ Super Bowl Spot Has Amazing Grace
Here at ScreenCrush, we have already done two different lists of recent trailers with sad covers of famous songs.
Looks like we might have to start a third list soon.
The Super Bowl spot for Logan, the third and presumably final Wolverine solo film starring fitness and calorie deprivation fanatic Hugh Jackman, arrives next month and its Big Game ad struck an ironic chord with a mournful version of “Amazing Grace.” And indeed, how sweet the sound to hear Wolverine’s claws slicing through a bad guy one last time.
As a reminder, here is the latest full synopsis for Logan courtesy of 20th Century Fox:
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 addition to returning stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, Logan will star Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and newcomer Dafne Keen. The final Wolverine adventure will claw its way into theaters on March 3, 2017.
