Sure, why not? Let’s make this happen.

logan trailer breakdown

Logan couldn’t be a better success story. Hugh Jackman got to go out on a high note, the R-rated movie surpassed expectations at the box-office, and the whole endeavor received love all around from audiences, comic book fans, and critics. Making Logan‘s journey all the more satisfying is its return to theaters with a black and white cut, which will be on this month’s Blu-Ray release.

Also on the home video release is a deleted scene with Caliban (Stephen Merchant). Below, watch the Logan deleted scene (Spoilers are ahead).

dragonheart-4

Depending on your tolerance for cheesy fantasy movies, you’ll either be appalled or pleasantly surprised to know that Universal is still pumping out Dragonheart sequels. It’s been 21 years since the original movie hit theaters, but last year’s prequel, Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse, evidently did well enough to warrant keeping this franchise alive. Now we have the first trailer for the latest entry in the saga, Dragonheart 4: Battle for the Heartfire, and this one has enlisted the voice talents of Sir Patrick Stewart to voice the dragon.

Scott Frank interview

Right from the start of Logan, it’s obvious James Mangold‘s film isn’t your average superhero movie. Putting aside the R-rating the filmmaker doesn’t waste, there’s also the fact that comic book heroes rarely look as broken and feel as real as Hugh Jackman does in his final outing as the beloved mutant. The story isn’t about a hero who saves the day; it’s about a man who desperately needs saving.

The unconventional comic book movie, which is always more interested in its three central characters than hurrying up to the next set piece, is co-written by Mangold, Michael Green (American Gods), and Scott Frank. Frank is the writer behind two knockout Elmore Leonard adaptations, the director of The Lookout and A Walk Among the Tombstones, and the author behind Shaker.

We recently spoke with Frank about Logan, his novel, and more after he wrapped shooting his western Netflix series, Godless. We’ll be sharing more from our conversation with the writer-director in the coming days, but in the meantime, you can read our spoiler discussion about Mangold’s film below.

logan spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: James Mangold’s Logan.)

There has never been a superhero movie like Logan.

Paced like a ’70s drama, styled like a classic western, and powered by characters rather than action, director James Mangold has concluded the saga of Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine with a powerful pop rather than an empty bang.  Like the very different Deadpool, this is a superhero movie, an X-Men movie, that is beholden only to itself. It has shrugged off its masters and is all the better for it.

And while most superhero movies dwell on surface pleasures, Logan offers meat to chew on. Bloody and bitter meat, but meat thoughtfully and carefully prepared. Let’s take a deep dive into what makes Logan so special and so different.

Spoilers head, of course.
