20th Century Fox has released a two minute trailer for Logan, the next movie in their X-Men and Wolverine cinematic universes, which arrives in movie theaters on March 3rd, 2017.  It makes excellent use of Johnny Cash’s “Hurt,” a famously popular ballad written and originally performed by Trent Reznor, but the trailer gives the lyric “the needle tears a hole” a new meaning, as Wolverine has apparently lost his powers and the claws that pop out of his fists do real damage to him now.  Interestingly, Fox chooses not to use that verse in this trailer.

Another reason this trailer has so much dramatic impact are the feeble voice-overs from Charles Xavier, as played by Patrick Stewart.  A surprise to many fans of the X-Men franchise is the appearance of a strange girl at the end of the trailer, who many are speculating is the first appearance of the mutant X-23.
