It should come as no surprise that Logan dominated the box office this past weekend. Even with its R-rating, the last outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine pulled in $88.4 million, making it the largest R-rated March debut ever. But the movie packs a powerful emotional punch, and while it’s just as good as all the reviews have been saying I’m not sure it’s the kind of movie I’m prepared to enthusiastically watch for a second time so soon.
Then again, taking a second glance at Logan would afford me the opportunity to pick up on any easter eggs or references that are made to both the previous X-Men films and the comic books that inspired them. However, if you don’t have the time to find them yourself, a helpful video is online that runs through a bunch of the Logan easter eggs that can be found. Watch below, but beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen Logan. Read More »

By now you’ve probably heard how great Logan turned out to be as the swan song for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. One of the film’s strengths is how it basically stands on its own, making only passing references to events and characters from the previous films in the X-Men franchise. In fact, there’s one element to Logan that makes it seem as if all the previous movies may just be exaggerated comic book fiction.
While Logan, Professor X and the young mutant experiment named Laura (aka X-23) are on the run from the dangerous foes of what few mutants are surviving in the world, we learn that the deadly little girl is a fan of X-Men comics. It’s not unlike how Rey and Finn have heard about the stories involving the heroics of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Logan is quick to debunk the stories in the comics, but you can be the judge of that yourself by taking a look at some of their pages.

It’s finally time for Logan to hit theaters, starting with sneak preview screenings tonight before playing everywhere tomorrow. Leading up to the release of the movie, there were rumors about a post-credits scene being included. That rumor seemed to be confirmed by an extension of the film’s running time by just a few minutes, and that was after it had already screened for press without and credits scenes present. But we learned that it would be something that played before the movie started instead of during or after the credits.
Now we have exclusively learned what the details of the secret teaser is that will be playing before Logan. If you want to avoid any spoilers for this secret Logan trailer, do not read after the jump. Read More »
The earliest part of the marketing campaign for Logan came in the form of a series of photos from the set of the movie. By way of an Instagram account with the username “wponx“, 20th Century fox release black and white photos from the set of production. They were rather gorgeous pieces of photography, and at one time, fans thought there was a chance the entire movie might be black and white. But as we’ve seen in the trailers, the film is very much in full color, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see a black and white version eventually.
