Last Call for Logan

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer) I believe in perfect moments. Snippets of events that tie together to paint a masterpiece. For me, it’s the events that led to me meeting my wife. From the smell in the air to the way a stoplight changes. The song on the radio or the recollection of a dumb joke that helped break the ice. They are magical and remind us that, sometimes, the universe lines up just right. That is absolutely prevalent in the first trailer for Logan, the final Wolverine story with Hugh Jackman. See, I believe there was a reason that Dougray Scott was tied to Mission Impossible 2 and could’t take the role of Wolverine so it passed to an unknown Jackman. I believe that Trent Reznor sat down in 1995 and wrote “Hurt” specifically for Johnny Cash without ever knowing it until he heard The Man in Black sing it. Little moments that make a huge masterpiece. It paints a picture of a future where Logan is broken and old. A future where he is haunted by ghosts and regrets. A future where he wants to be anywhere but in his own skin. No mutants. Nothing and no one to fight or fight for. Like life itself, suddenly Hope appears. A Hope that will bring a new future for mutants. A Hope that is certainly worth fighting for and dying for. You may be looking at these sentences with confusion. Why the capital ‘H’? To that, I simply leave you with this trailer…and a wink.
