Profane and violent, 'Logan' lets Wolverine off the chain

Co-stars and friends Hugh has been hanging out with Zac Efron with whom he stars in the upcoming film The Greatest Showman

"The image I had of Hoskins was from the films he made in England where they emphasized, in terms of his character, the harshness, the Cockney, the brutality of him", he said. This film seriously earns its "R" rating.

That very mind is central to the most impressive scene in the movie where Professor X single handedly freezes time, and a casio full of punters and baddies, in order to protect the young Laura. But that he'd play a comic-book tough guy who chomps cigars and sinks his claws into bad guys' faces? I cried a few times on the set.

"It's not like I never had a cheat meal, 'cause I did", Jackman said.

Back in 2015, Hugh Jackman expressed his love for Bollywood and cricket. "To move toys and t-shirts, and to kind of just facilitate the further marketing of a franchise". The remaining ones aren't much in favor, evidently, though we see only one: Caliban (Stephen Merchant), who spends his days guarding Charles and puts up with insults from Logan in their dusty hideout just across the Mexican border. In particular he referenced the rumors of Mr. He praised Hugh Jackman's 17-year run as Wolverine, but acknowledged he had wanted someone else initially - Bob Hoskins. "I was anxious it was getting limited for me, and directors I wanted to work with were not so interested" in hiring him for non-superhero acting roles, Jackman says, though his fears were quelled when Woody Allen and Darren Aronofsky approached him - for Scoop and The Fountain respectively - and not the other way around. With the Old Man Logan storyline involving visceral imagery like decapitating Red Skull with Captain America's shield, bursting out of the inside of Hulk, and battling T-Rexes, bringing such tall tales to our screen would have been near impossible.


So, it really looks like Mangold isn't fibbing - no dinosaurs, no Mr. Hats off to him, not many directors are able to craft a film that is so much their baby and free from outside interference.

Last month, it was reported that Hugh Jackman's (supposedly) final outing as Wolverine was tracking a $60 million domestic opening weekend, and now comes word from Deadline that the film is looking at a global debut in excess of $170 million, with some estimates putting it as high as $200 million.
