Logan trailer - Hugh Jackman

In just under two weeks, Logan will hit theaters, giving us what is supposed to be the last outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Thankfully, it sounds like this movie not only gives fans the Wolverine movie they’ve been waiting to see for years, but it also gives Hugh Jackman a powerful send off as the adamantium-clad mutant.

Our own David Chen already delivered a spoiler-free review of Logan, and he loved it. Of course, you might want to know what a variety of other critics though, so we rounded up some of the other reviews out there. For anyone excited for Logan, you’ll be happy to hear that the latest sequel from director James Mangold will not disappoint.

Check out our Logan reviews round-up after the jump. Read More »

Logan Cameos

From the beginning, director James Mangold wanted to make a different kind of superhero movie with Logan. In tone and scale, it looks different compared to most comic book adaptations, which now tend to involve cameos, sometimes to the detriment of the story at hand. Mangold didn’t want to risk compromising Logan, and Hugh Jackman‘s final performance as the character, so he was hesitant to force some cameos into the movie, which is why he ultimately abandoned a sequence involving a few familiar mutants.

‘Logan’ Clip Reveals X-23’s Origin Story

Over the past couple of months, the marketing for Logan has been consistent and impressive. The red band trailer, the black-and-white photos, the storyboards, and both the official one sheet and IMAX poster all promote a comic book movie with its own attitude and style. Just the other day we saw a black-and-white clip — how many of those do we see to promote superhero movies? — showing how much Logan’s life has deteriorated since his X-Men days. The latest video promoting the R-rated movie shows Laura’s (Dafne Keen) life isn’t much better than the once great Wolverine.

Below, see what happens when a few doctors try to remove X-23’s adamantium claws in the new Logan video.

Fox Worried About Logan

As all the trailers for the upcoming Wolverine sequel Logan have indicated, this movie will be much different from what fans have seen before from the adamantium-clad mutant’s solo adventures. Both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine tried too hard to be X-Men movies in their own way, but Logan is venturing out on its own with an entirely different tone and style, distancing itself from the X-Men franchise as a whole.

Fans should be grateful and thankful that this opportunity that what may end up being Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as Wolverine (unless a Deadpool crossover can bring him back) ended up being something much more bold and daring in the superhero genre. 20th Century Fox was originally very timid about the prospect of doing such a dark Wolverine movie, and once they found out what the thematic elements within the story, they were even worried it would be boring.

The ‘Logan’ IMAX Poster Goes Old School

A few years ago, director James Mangold shared ten movies that inspired The Wolverine, his first outing in the X-Men universe. If nothing else, that list showcased Mangold as a man with great taste in classic and contemporary cinema. Few things make me happy quite like a filmmaker actively thinking about Black Narcissus and The French Connection while working on a major superhero movie.

So it’s appropriate that the new IMAX poster for Logan, Mangold’s second Wolverine movie and Hugh Jackman‘s swan song as the character, looks like it was torn from a movie theater wall circa 1973.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Ten years ago, Wolverine was a member of the X-Men, saving the world on a daily basis and slicing through hordes of bad guys as if they were made out of butter. But in the upcoming Logan, it looks like all of that hard work has amounted to a crummy job and a desperate phone call about wanting to buy a used boat for lower than the listed price. This new clip from James Mangold‘s film really does sell this as being a very different Wolverine movie than we’re used to seeing.

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.
