Logan Film Genre Video Essay

Easily one of the best movies of 2017 so far is the surprisingly emotional comic book movie Logan. As Hugh Jackman‘s final turn as Wolverine, we get a film unlike any comic book blockbuster that came before, and Logan is all the better for it. When looked at as the second bookend of the superhero genre, connected all the way back to the start of the superhero/comic book movie craze that truly began with X-Men back in 2000, Logan becomes the perfect metaphor for how film genres change over time.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

new mutants horror movie

Every time a comic book movie director claims that his movie will be “very different” from other superhero movies, an angel loses its wings and gains heat vision.

But New Mutants director Josh Boone swears that his X-Men spin-off will forego all those costumes and supervillains, and go “full-fledged horror movie” instead — because horror is the new trend now.

But Boone wants you to know that New Mutants isn’t like other X-Men films.
