New Batch Of Logan Images Focus On Wolverine, Caliban, The Villains, And More

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

More Logan images from the latest issue of Empire Magazine have surfaced today, and as you can see, they give us a new look at pretty much the entire cast. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine can be seen chomping a cigar, we get a very cool shot of Caliban (a character we first met in X-Men: Apocalypse), while the villainous Zander Rise and Donald Pierce also take centre stage in these latest images. These don't reveal a lot of new plot details, though the shot of Wolverine being restrained by the Reavers is very interesting, especially as he would have effortlessly taken them down in the past! Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, and Patrick Stewart. It's currently set to be released on March 3rd, 2017, so stick to Cbm for updates.  »

Get a Closer Look at the X-Men Comic Featured in Logan

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the final Logan trailer debuted last week, one of the early scenes featured Hugh Jackman's title character discovering that Dafne Keen's X-23 is a fan of the X-Men comics. We get a brief glimpse at some of the panels, as Logan rmuses that "maybe a quarter of it happened," referring to the events depicted in these fictional pages. As it turns out, this on-screen comic book was actually brought to life for the film by Marvel's chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, who is sharing the page as seen in the trailer. If that wasn't enough, Hugh Jackman just debuted a sneak peek at the new Empire Magazine cover featuring a look at Logan after having been shot numerous times, along with four more photos from inside magazine.

Joe Quesada posted the comic book images on his Tumblr page last night, explaining how he worked closely with Wolverine »

Four new images from ‘Logan’

7 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Set for a release this Spring (March 1st to be precise), Logan is the latest and last(?) film in the standalone Wolverine movies. Set in the near future, Logan sees an aging Wolverine and Professor X working together to protect a young female clone of Wolverine – aka X-23 from the Marvel comic of the same name – from an evil organization led by Nathanial Essex.

Logan once again stars Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine (this time more aged and haggard a la the Old Man Logan comicsverse), Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Dafne Keen as X-23, Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice, Stephen Merchant, Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Doris Morgado and Eriq La Salle.

Check out the four new images from Logan below (courtesy of Empire), and if you haven’t yet, make sure to watch our interview with director James Mangold.

Logan Gets Rated R for Brutal Violence and Nudity

23 January 2017 10:04 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that production was under way on Logan, the final Wolverine movie starring Hugh Jackman. And that the movie will be R-rated. Today, James Mangold announced on social media that the MPAA has awarded an R rating for Logan, while explaining why this particular rating was handed out. Here's what the filmmaker had to say in a brief Twitter statement..

"Official: Please be advised that Logan has been rated R for 'strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.'"

The filmmaker wouldn't offer more details about the rating on Twitter, including which cast members go nude in the film. The strong language was teased a few months ago when James Mangold released a photo featuring the second page of the Logan screenplay, containing a number of "f-bombs" and a scene where Logan is being beaten by a group known as the Bangers. »

James Mangold Talks Logan at 20th Century Fox’s Genre Showcase, Read Our Impressions of the First 42 Minutes

23 January 2017 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In December at their 2017 Genre Showcase event, 20th Century Fox previewed the first 42 minutes of Logan, the eagerly awaited final chapter of the Wolverine saga. Daily Dead was in attendance at the event, and to give readers a big idea of what to expect, we have highlights from director James Mangold’s comments at the event, as well as our impressions of the intense footage that was shown.

After appearing as the character in now nine films (including his X-Men: First Class cameo) Hugh Jackman teams up once again with director James Mangold to bring his run as the “Mutant Formerly Known As Weapon X” to an end.

The two last brought the character to the screen in 2013 with The Wolverine, when original director Darren Aronofsky bowed out after a lengthy pre-production phase. The results were mostly positive, but moments felt hamstrung by superhero movie clichés, such as the out-of-place »

Logan Helmer James Mangold Sets The Record Straight Regarding Film’s Timeline; Empire Pics Emerge

23 January 2017 9:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

In typical tongue-in-cheek fashion, it was Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth that once labeled the X-Men series as a difficult butterfly to pin (“McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines are so confusing.”), and given that Fox’s franchise now spans multiple movies across many different eras, you can hardly blame him.

But with Logan, a dystopian road flick set in the year 2029, writer-director James Mangold has consciously carved out a corner of the universe that is far removed from any other X-Men movie. It’s a decision that lends both Mangold and his team enough creative freedom to craft Wolverine’s final chapter as intended – “clear of existing entanglements,” as the director himself so aptly put.

That being said, there’s been some lingering confusion over Logan‘s timeline and, specifically, where it fits into the overarching universe. Lead star Hugh Jackman recently hinted that Wolverine »

James Mangold Clarifies Hugh Jackman's Confusing Continuity Statements Regarding Logan

23 January 2017 2:50 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Logan star Hugh Jackman made some confusing statements this weekend when he gave an interview implying that his final film as Wolverine would be set in a different universe than prior films in the X-Men franchise. "When you see the full movie you'll understand," he told Digital Spy. "Not only is it different in terms of timeline and tone, it's a slightly different universe. It's actually a different paradigm and that will become clear." Of course, this was surprising to many, especially considering the involvement of Patrick Stewart's Professor Xavier, who has had an extensive role in the overall story of the franchise. Now, due to some fans being vocal about their confusion, Logan director James Mangold (who has known to be quite vigilant in debunking rumours and speculation about the film) took to Twitter to respond. "[I] Don't think @RealHughJackman said that exactly. Simple fact. We take place in »

Is Logan Not Part of the X-Men Movie Universe?

22 January 2017 12:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've known for quite some time that 20th Century Fox's Logan will be Hugh Jackman's final film as Wolverine, and it was recently confirmed by director James Mangold that the film is set in the year 2029. The filmmaker revealed that Logan takes place 5 years after the events of the X-Men: Days of Future Past prologue, which is set in the year 2024, with the director stating that setting the movie in 2029 gives him room to be clear of the "existing entanglements" of the X-Men universe. Today we have word from Hugh Jackman, who claims that Logan isn't even set in the same X-Men universe, although James Mangold revealed on social media that may not be the case. First off, here's what Hugh Jackman had to say about how this movie isn't "beholden to timelines" of the X-Men universe.

"And so Jim [Mangold] and I had this blank canvas and we wanted to make something really different. »

‘Logan’ Trailer 2 Red Band Brings Out the Claws

22 January 2017 8:19 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

A second trailer for Fox's Logan movie holds nothing back as the Wolverine and his young, aggressive friend bring out the claws and sink them deep into a variety of black clad military-types.

Hugh Jackman's final turn as Wolverine puts the mutant into a mentor role as his own mentor fights for his life. We'll get to see three generations of mutants grapple morality and potentially passing the torch.

As the Logan trailer 2 red band teases, this r-rated turn holds nothing back as victims are impaled or their limbs literally chopped off.

Logan stars Hugh JackmanPatrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen as the new young mutant. Here's the short and sweet official synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan's attempts to hide from the »

James Mangold on why Mister Sinister wouldn’t fit with Logan

22 January 2017 2:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On the director’s commentary for X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg discussed the post credit scene of last year’s mutant superhero blockbuster, confirming  that it was a set-up for the upcoming Wolverine solo movie Logan.

Given that the scene in question name dropped Essex Corp., many assumed that we’d be seeing Nathaniel Essex – a.k.a. Mister Sinister – making his debut in the X-Men movie franchise this March, only for director James Mangold to debunk that theory on Twitter. And now, speaking to CinemaBlend, Mangold has revealed why a villain like Sinister simply doesn’t fit with the tone they are going for with Logan.

“Now that you’ve seen some of the movie, I think [what] you get a better sense of is, that’s exactly the kind of thing this movie avoids,” said Mangold. “Meaning, the kind of operatic highly-costumed, stroboscopic villainy… that’s not in this movie. »

Logan Is Not Set In The X-Men Universe, Says Hugh Jackman

21 January 2017 10:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s no secret that Logan is set to be very different not only from every other X-Men movie, but almost any other comic book adaptation we’ve seen to date. That’s been made very evident throughout the film’s marketing campaign, which culminated in a stunning trailer that released this past week. What we never realized, though, is that not only is Logan not following in the footsteps of its predecessors, but it’s actually set in an entirely different universe than the other X-Men outings.

Speaking to Digital Spy in a recent interview, Hugh Jackman said the following about his final effort as the clawed mutant:

“When you see the full movie you’ll understand,” the actor explained. “Not only is it different in terms of timeline and tone, it’s a slightly different universe. It’s actually a different paradigm and that will become clear.”

Sundance 2017 Review: I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore, One Hell of a Ride

19 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Most of us met Macon Blair onscreen as a the bearded, disheveled lead of Blue Ruin. Homeless and hapless, the character soon evolved into one of the more startling and indelible in indie cinema, a bravado performance that justifiably gained lots of notice. Working again with director Jeremy Saulnier, Blair had perhaps the most thankless task in Green Room, literally moderating between the ice cold portrayal of Patrick Stewart and the more kinetic travails of the punk band at the center of the narrative. For me that role proved Blair’s mettle, injecting a sad sack humainity to the role of a middle-management Nazi struggling with his orders. It’s what sets the film apart, and while lacking in flash it’s more than made up for in...
