Well, will you look at this; the X-Men franchise has finally found not only one, but two ways to draw me in. It’s not that I haven’t tried. What with the excellent movie casts, I’ve always been a little disappointed that I found myself indifferently attempting to get through Days of Future Past, or even just the trailers for Apocalypse.

Logan is in theaters March 3rd.
