We’ve been bracing ourselves for the adult language and mature situations of Logan ever since James Mangold’s movie got an R rating. The depressing truth we confronted in the first trailer—that even a man whose cellular structure is constantly regenerating can grow old—was enough to make us wonder whether we’re ready for the feature-length version. The final trailer, which has just been released, takes the edge off a bit with some humor, but there’s no denying the wear and tear on Logan (Hugh Jackman) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart). That’s why it’s for the best that they’re showing X-23 (Dafne Keen) the ropes, since it looks like she’ll be on her own sooner than later. There are obscenities throughout, but again, the most unsettling thing is the air of finality.

Logan snikts into theaters March 3.
