The movie takes place in the year 2024, and it’s dark. Darker than any other other “Wolverine” or “X-Men” movie.

Old Man Logan is in full effect. He looks bad, and drinks a lot. For work, he drives a 2024 Chrysler 300 limo that’s modified in the front to look more futuristic. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly — sometimes not at all.

In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. We find out about a government-type operation called “Transigen” that is turning mutant children into killing machines. Logan ends up mentoring a young girl, who has two claws instead of his three.

Also, according to Fox India’s twitter account tweeting with the hashtag ‘#1DayToLoganTeaser’, we should see a teaser trailer for the film some time tomorrow.
