Johnny Cash’s Cover of ‘Hurt’ Soundtracks New ‘Logan’ Trailer


By Amanda Wicks

Johnny Cash’s famous cover of the Nine Inch Nails’ song “Hurt” is itself a brooding wound of a song, so what better choice to soundtrack the new trailer for the third and final Wolverine movie, Logan?

Cash’s version appears in the trailer, and sets the tone for the physically and psychologically wounded superhero played by Hugh Jackman. Using the song to tell Wolverine’s tail might be a bit more calculating than it seems on the surface. Logan‘s director James Mangold also directed the Cash biopic Walk the Line (2005).

According to Fox’s official synopsis “In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.”

Hugh Jackman has been playing the tortured character since the original X-Men in 2000.

Logan opens March 3rd, 2017.
