Hugh Jackman is ready to hang up his Wolverine claws - but he's not going out without a fight.
The new trailer for Logan, the third and final Wolverine movie, is released today, and it highlights a bloody last go-around for Jackman and his formerly side-burned hero.
Set 25 years after the end of Days of Future Past, the new film finds Logan working as a limo driver in Texas trying to escape his past as his age, debilitating healing abilities and death-filled life catch up with him.
When Logan ends up in Mexico, he reunites with Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and they find themselves defending a young girl, Laura Kinney, from a group of Ravagers looking to get to her.
"She needs our help," says the Professor.
"Someone will come along," Logan, reluctant to return to his super-ways, replies.
"Someone has come along."
Logan combines the Old Man Logan comic storyline with that of X-23, a female clone of Logan's with similar abilities.
The appearance of X-23 was teased in X-Men: Apocalypse in a post credits scene, when vials of Logan's blood were taken away by the mysterious Essex Corporation.
While the trailer packs in a lot of blood, with both Wolverine and X-23 killing multiple enemies with their claws, it also shows that it will mark an emotional end to Logan's story that started with 2000's
"This is what life looks like. People who love each other, a home. You should take a moment, feel it. You still have time," Professor X says over the brutal violence.
It is the first Wolverine movie to have a R-rating, and comes after the success of fellow mutant movie Deadpool, which became the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time.
Logan co-stars Boyd Holbrook, Richard E Grant and Stephen Merchant.
It is released in New Zealand cinemas on March 2.
