20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for Logan. Hugh Jackman returns in his final turn as Wolverine. But this isn't the animal we've seen before. Here he's broken down and in search of peace following a lifetime of violence and death. But when a group called The Reavers comes in search of a girl with similar powers to Logan, he must protect her. This is unlike any superhero film I've ever seen. Using Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" to tremendous effect, Logan looks like a modern western meets post-apocalyptic. I can't believe Fox allowed Jackman and director James Mangold to make this film but I can't wait to see what they've crafted. Logan opens March 3, 2017.
Marvel has released the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. James Gunn returns as writer and director for this sequel that finds the crew up against a new threat while also in search for Peter Quill's father. This is a short little announcement teaser but it still manages to include that great humor and energy that made the original so damn entertaining. Sequels tend to be more dark, but I hope Gunn maintains a great level of levity throughout the followup. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens May 5, 2017.
HBO has released the first trailer for the limited series Big Little Lies. The series follows several women in a beachside community and focuses on issues ranging from sex and child rearing to apparently murder. Like most HBO shows, this one looks gritty, sexy and well shot. The show stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgard and arrives on HBO in 2017.
