20th Century Fox has debuted a gritty, atmospheric viral video for Logan which sheds light on what the titular hero has been up to in the period leading up to the movie. We’ve known for some time that James Howlett, aka Wolverine, aka Logan, has been living under the radar as a limo driver. This video shows us that Logan is trying to buy a boat, a 1996 Sunseeker, so that he can- presumably- sail off into the sunset.

You can check out this gorgeous viral video, entitled “Sunseeker,” for Logan, right here:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Logan looks like it has the potential to be a very, very special film. Clips like this show that director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman are trying to make the kind of groundbreaking comic book film that could actually be remembered come Award Season. If it lives up to the potential of its promotional materials, we may finally have a comic book movie that can stand alongside The Dark Knight as a seminal example of what can be done within the confines of the genre. 

Logan comes out on March 3.
