There's a great deal of anticipation for Hugh Jackman's last turn as Wolverine in Logan. This means that many are waiting for the next trailer that we knew was coming. Now we know exactly when we'll get a chance to see it. One of the international divisions of 20th Century Fox has confirmed that the trailer will be hitting on Thursday morning 6am PT/9am ET.
We knew there was a trailer on its way because the individual frames of that trailer were being mailed out to fans who signed up on a website a couple weeks back. While some of us who signed up are still waiting for their frame to arrive in the mail (if the mailman stole my frame I'm going to hurt him) it appears that all of the frames will be available to check out soon. The Taiwan division of Fox tweeted out (via Trailer Track) that the new trailer will hit there on Friday, which, accounting for timezones would have it debuting here on Thursday. Fox traditionally releases their trailers at 6 am pacific time, so that's when we can expect what will probably be the film's final trailer, considering the movie comes out in just a couple more months.
There were 1,974 frames of the trailer sent out to fans, which, at a standard 24 frames per second, puts the trailer at just over 80 seconds long. That's not a lot of time considering how much about Logan we still don't really know. We've seen Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and the little girl he will be protecting but we still haven't seen exactly who or what it is he will be protecting her from. We know the answers to those questions because we've been following the news, but the marketing has yet to let us in on that. We'd love to get a look at some of these characters and get some detail about how they will fit into the story as a whole.
At the end of the day, however, it really doesn't matter how much about Logan we actually know going in. It looks to be one of the most dramatic comic book movies ever made. Ryan Reynolds has said that the film could be the one that takes the genre to the next level and makes them the sort of films that get considered for major awards, if Deadpool hasn't already accomplished that, of course.
Make sure to visit Cinema Blend on Thursday morning to be one of the first to see the final trailer for Logan ahead of the film's release in theaters March 3. We'll have the trailer up as quickly as possible, followed by in-depth analysis of what it shows us about Hugh Jackman's final turn as Wolverine.
