Both Jackman and Stewart will walk away from the "X-Men" franchise they've starred in for 15 years, a decision Stewart admits he made while weeping with his co-star at a screening of "Logan" at the Berlin Film Festival last month. It's gritty, dark, and a deeply satisfying conclusion for fans who've followed the clawed character through Jackman's past eight movie outings with the X-Men and alone as Wolverine.
In addition, Logan knocks out the $8.2M Thursday night cash from X-Men: Apocalypse which played over Memorial Day weekend, earning a $26.3M Friday, and $65.7M three-day. That makes sense considered the way "Logan" ends (which we won't spoil) and the fact that this is Hugh Jackman's (we thing) last turn as Wolverine. Vulture caught up with the film's director and co-writer, James Mangold, and he offered a defense of his choice to up the gory ante. Logan exceeded all of my expectations, it is a lovely film, but one that is bittersweet, take a moment, feel it.
That right there sounds like a movie we'd all love to see. Taken from his parents and transported forward in time, Cable grows up in a rough-and-tumble future, raised as a warrior, before being replaced in present time to assist the X-Men.
Kohli: 'Won't produce a performance like Pune again'
Kohli blamed the setback on his team's lack of intent but promised a better display in the second test starting on Saturday. The crowd were not happy and started going completely berserk. "Pune wicket was not poor".
It may seem that way as the film starts with Logan and Charles Xavier a.k.a. Professor X plus the albino mutant Caliban as the only mutants alive.
I really don't want to spoil anything but just know that the film does have its surprises and they are great. And I know I'm not the only one hoping we'll see her develop more onscreen after Logan. It is an emotional, heavy picture, but it's also an uplifting one that reminds us that it's okay to fight for something better than ourselves. "She said, 'You've got to understand that your job as a husband is not to be in shape and make me look good".
The battle-weary wolverine is, however, forced out of his secluded location to protect a young mutant."Logan" has its fair share of brutal violence, hence the adult rating, and now has a more constricted audience of adult only fans. There's a reason Logan and Deadpool are excellent and that's because they weren't just paint by the numbers superhero movies, they went with particular style and showed people that there can be mature and unique superhero movies. "There's a cost to violence", Jackman told journalists at a screening in NY.
