What's the song in the Logan trailer?
The next X-Men film looks to be the biggest departure yet for the franchise, and Logan hinted at a distinctly different vibe with the song choice for its first trailer. So what's the story behind that tune?
If you're unfamiliar, the song is Johnny Cash's rendition of Nine Inch Nails' 1994 single "Hurt." Cash's cover of the song, recorded for his American IV: The Man Comes Around album in 2002, is arguably better known than the original, and offers an intriguing match for the stark tone and visuals on display in the Logan trailer. The film follows an older, weathered version of Wolverine in a desolate future—and Cash's gravely take on this broken, complicated track is the perfect accompaniment, underscoring the tone of the trailer and making the story's sadness tangible.
Logan opens March 3, 2017.
