The second trailer for Fox’s Logan has dropped, and it’s less arty, but more bloody, than the first. We get a lot more of an in-depth look at Laura, aka X-23, this time around, watching her shoplift, scream at grown men, and use Wolverine’s back as a springboard to cut some poor guy’s jugular.
The shoplifting scene feels particularly important, because it reveals that Laura hasn’t grown up like a normal little girl. She’s somehow even more of a human wolverine than the Wolverine we all know and love, and he tells her that beating up a guy because he won’t give her free Pringles and pink sunglasses is “not okay.” But, then, of course, he steals candy for himself before busting out of the 7-11 with his bloodthirsty, tiny sidekick in tow.
Also on display here are the film’s villains, who seem justifiably terrified of Laura. They also treat her like a dog, calling out, “No…! No…!” as she approaches. We don’t get another look at Caliban and the Morlocks, but the extra shots of Professor X suggest, as most Logan promos have so far, that he’ll kick the bucket during the film, perhaps inspiring Wolverine to take in Laura and help her control all that anger. “This is a family,” we hear Professor X say, which makes the final scene in the trailer sort of hilarious; Logan hears “make her your family” and decides that it means “teach her to launch herself off of your body like a murder missile.”
