Bleak, gruesome and quite frankly depressing are words that spring to mind to describe footage that has been released, from trailers to Superbowl spots, for the upcoming Superhero branch of X-Men franchise, Logan. This includes the brand new clip, simply entitled Laura.mov.
The new clip, which comes in the form of a homemade clip, of X-23 aka Laura Kinney, located in a hospital and being worked on by surgeons to remove her knife like claws to the sound of a beeping machine and the odd scream for atmospheric effect. It’s eerie and horrific and like most of the promotional campaign so far vague in its presentation.
Starring Hugh Jackman in what may be his last outing as our beloved, ill-tempered Logan with a new mutant, X-23 under his wing, we only have to wait another two weeks before we can indulge in what promises to be a very special addition to the franchise.
Logan Official Synopsis

But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
