On this episode, the GeekScholars host a spoiler-free discussion and review of Logan, Hugh Jackman’s last outing as rapidly-healing mutant with claws who finds himself on the run with an aging Professor X (Patrick Stewart) to protect a young mysterious girl that may have ties to Logan’s past.
What to Watch This Weekend is a weekly podcast from GeekScholars Movie News. Each Friday, the GeekScholars present a spoiler-free review of a film that has just become available in the past week to watch by renting, streaming, or purchasing.
I hate this silly and juvenile idea people have that somehow giving something an R Rating will automatically make a movie better, or the only reason a film sucked was because it was PG or PG-13 instead of R. This has been one of the ongoing complaints from fans of Wolverine for years. Logan is the R-Rated Wolverine film fans have been begging for is finally upon us. But is it any good?
It takes less than half the new trailer (in either green or red band) for us to learn that the little girl that old man Logan and the aged Professor X are protecting is a very familiar character at a very young age – and that they might just protecting others from her, as well.
Note the amusing – and thought-provoking – way Logan ties in to the X-Men cinematic universe. Very, very clever indeed!
Logan opens on March 2nd. Hold onto your hats and check out both red and green band trailers after the break.
Lots of sequel and prequel news on this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News, as the hosts discuss the first footage released for Logan, and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, along with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel news, Mary Poppins Returns casting, who the villain of the next Spider-Man film should be, and even a quick review of the new Doctor Strange theme.
I just stumbled across the first trailer for Logan (for some reason, 20th Century Fox is the only major studio that won’t put me on their critics’ list).
Set to the strains of Johnny Cash’s take on NIN’s Hurt, this is a future Logan – a mutant who has gotten old in a world where Mutants are gone. A man without a purpose until Professor Charles Xavier gives him one…
Logan will be in theaters on March3, 2017.
Beginning today, Eclipse will be grading trailers the same way we grade movies. The Logan trailer is a great place to start.
