We are truly living in an era of promotional stills. My general impression was that these lost all their value as soon as a movie’s trailer hit, but the last few weeks have forced me to question how true that is.
Case in point, Hugh Jackman tweeted out this new picture from Logan:
It’s not much, just old man Logan leaning against his trusty limo. I’m not sure why we’re supposed to get excited about this now that we’ve not only seen what he looks like in the new film, but saw him look like that all up in a trailer. But if you want it, there it is.
I will tell you this, though. I saw forty minutes of Logan earlier this month, and at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, it totally blew me away. I can’t speak to what happens after those forty minutes. Maybe the whole thing falls apart. (Though I kind of doubt that.) But people are going to love this movie, at least initially.
And neither that guy, not his car look unscathed like that for long.
