Snikt! all over the place! 

Check out this new set of shots from James Mangold's Logan taken from the new issue of Empire, revealing both Wolverine and X-23 flashing their mutant blades. 

The $130 million, R-rated superhero flick, patterned after Mark Millar's Old Man Logan comic storyline of 2008-09, looks to be a grim, melancholy affair, with Hugh Jackman's Logan paired with a precocious adolescent mutant and heading out on the dusty highway with Patrick Stewart's ailing Professor X across the wastelands of 2024.  

A new red band trailer gives us hope that there's much more to the film than just a lot of bluesy negativity, and Dafne Keen's Laura/X-23 appears to be a refreshing addition to the cast.  

Logan opens wide on March 3. Check out these four new images of the two mutants wielding their wicked weapons in the gallery below and tell us if these pics cut to the quick.
