Logan Is Fifth-Highest R-Rated Opening Of All Time

Still, Logan is enjoying extremely positive reviews, with one AP critic saying that Jackman is "going out in heartfelt, high-class style".

While that may seem like an exaggeration, once you watch the gritty, bruising film from director from director James Mangold, you'll see what I mean. For me, getting the studio to agree to rated R is also when the movie stops being about the four boxes.

He said: "A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie".

The movie is quite intentionally designed from the beginning to suck you in, in a kind of [John] Wick-ian way to the violence and the inescapable reality that it can be euphoric. This is not obvious in the film and the possibility of an X-23 spin-off is pure speculation.

And from that moment out I was arguing that we commit to making the film an R and he [Jackman] was backing me up. These small scenes are needed to lighten up the film as it is very much a dark and violent movie where there is little hope for our protagonists.

Trump says he's open to 'compromise' immigration bill
"I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American victims", Trump said in his speech. Many in Los Angeles' large Latino community tuned in to see president Trump's first primetime address to congress.

While it feels like a bunch of mutant loose ends that didn't make the cut for X-Men: The Last Stand, we're finally introduced to some of the X-Men universe's more recognizable faces with Remy LeBeau/Gambit (Taylor Kitch), Fred Dukes/The Blob (Devin Durand) and Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds).

The opening sequence to the movie makes it clear that this movie is not for children. To them, he's just a sad, old dude who needs a shave, someone hardly worthy of notice and certainly no obstacle to their criminal intentions. Xavier's declining mental and physical health (he's in his 90s now) and Logan's ageing body nearly make us feel sorry for the two characters. The very hot Get Out has a similar audience and is a movie that people love to talk about. We'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out. As he explains in the latest EW cover story, Jackman saw this particular mutant tale as the best possible way to say farewell to the character he's played for 17 years.

The third and final Wolverine film, following "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "The Wolverine", "Logan" is loosely based on the "Old Man Logan" comic book series. How did Patrick take to his role in this movie? "I vote for Hugh". The action scenes always ache with lament instead of playing for crowd-pleasing wows as they have in other "X-Men" flicks.

He went for it, he really did.
