‘Logan’ Images: X-23 Unleashes the Fury

logan images

The latest trailer for Logan continued to help make James Mangold‘s film stand out from the herd. Everything we’ve seen so far from the R-rated comic book movie implies what Mangold has been saying all along: this isn’t your average superhero movie.  Hugh Jackman recently described Logan as a slightly more violent Little Miss Sunshine, which isn’t the typical go-to reference for most comic book movies.

Below, check out some new Logan images.

UPDATE: The MPAA has officially given Logan an R-rating. We have added the details below.

Readers of the X-Men comics have gotten used to the concept of alternate timelines and diverging universes where familiar characters take on unfamiliar existences and events that would never happen in actual canon totally happen. The famous Old Man Logan storyline, one of the building blocks for director James Mangold‘s Logan, is one of those stories, taking place in a dystopian future where the villains have won and Wolverine attempts to survive in a world without heroes.

So it’s only appropriate that Hugh Jackman, set to play the adamantium-clawed hero for the ninth (and supposedly final) time on screen, says that Logan takes place in an alternate universe that is not beholden to the rules and continuity of the other X-Men movies.

Logan poster

Normally, when a studio offers us the chance to preview footage from an upcoming film, we’re treated to a handful of clips. In the case of James Mangold‘s Logan, we saw the entire first act — perhaps 30 or 40 minutes of footage. Such a move speaks to 20th Century Fox’s faith in the film, touted as Hugh Jackman‘s very last performance of Wolverine after 17 years. And based on what we saw, that confidence is well placed.

Mangold’s Logan feels unlike any superhero movie in recent movie, and yet its gritty Western vibe feels perfectly suited to Jackman’s world-weary take on the character. If this really is the last time we’ll see his Wolverine, it seems like a fitting end to his tenure. Read our Logan footage review below.

The sun is setting on Hugh Jackman‘s tenure as Wolverine (well, assuming Ryan Reynolds can’t coax him back for a Deadpool crossover), but he’s not going out quietly. The former X-Man may be older and grayer in Logan — and thanks to the decline of his mutant powers, he’s in a state of chronic pain that he self-medicates with booze. But he’s still got the ability to unleash hell when the situation calls for it, and he finds himself compelled to do just that when he meets Laura (Dafne Keen), a young mutant who needs his help.

The latest Logan trailer from 20th Century Fox offers just a little taste of the fight to come, and you can watch it after the jump.

Logan Score Preview

It’s no secret that a new Logan trailer is coming soon. 20th Century Fox is sending out the frames of the trailer to some lucky fans to assemble online (they’re on the way already), and the new glimpse at the Wolverine sequel should be coming shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, director James Mangold is holding fans over with some new images from the set featuring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and franchise newcomer Dafne Keen as X-23. Plus, he’s also release a snippet of the score from The Wolverine composer Marco Beltrami (not Cliff Martinez), and it sounds rather haunting and frantic.

Listen to the Logan score preview and see the images after the jump. Read More »

Welcome to today’s edition of “Your Favorite Comic Book Movie Stars Talk a Whole Bunch,” where Hugh Jackman showcases some hesitation about officially retiring as Wolverine (because he’d like to team up with Deadpool, you see) and Ryan Reynolds says Logan could be an Oscar contender.

Wolverine and Deadpool Movie

Instead of offering a sneak peek of the next Logan trailer (expected sometime in January) by way of a trailer for the trailer, 20th Century Fox is doing something a little different. They’ve decided to set up a website where you can sign up with your personal address, and they’ll send you a postcard of one out of the 1,974 frames that make up the trailer.

For those doing the math, with there being 24 frames per every second of film, the trailer is about 82 seconds long (nearly a minute and a half). Also, fun fact, 1974 just happens to be the year that Wolverine debuted in Marvel Comics, in an issue of The Incredible Hulk.

The prospect of a new Logan trailer is enticing, but what about the possibility of seeing Wolverine and Deadpool in the same movie? The rumor about Ryan Reynolds appearing Logan has been totally debunked by both the actor and Logan director James Mangold, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have a chance of seeing the characters on the big screen again, this time the right way.

As we’re all aware by now, Logan is Hugh Jackman‘s very last film as Wolverine — a role he’s been playing for a decade and a half now, starting with 2000’s X-Men. That fact adds an extra layer of poignancy to what already looks like a very bittersweet film, which in turn should make this movie even more of a must-see for fans. So the 20th Century Fox marketing team is leaning into it, hard, with a new Logan poster and a new Logan poster that literally show the sun setting on Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. Check ’em out below.  Read More »

Deadpool definitively proved that an R-rated superhero can make money. But just because the Merc managed to somersault over box office records doesn’t mean there’s no risk involved. Apparently 20th Century Fox was still a little apprehensive about the notion of making Logan an R-rated feature. So Hugh Jackman decided to make things a little easier for them. According to Logan director James Mangold, the actor agreed to a pay cut in exchange for the opportunity to make an R-rated Wolverine movie.  Read More »
