Among 80 of the 81 markets where Logan opened, the movie pulled $46.3 million in China, $11.4 million in the United Kingdom, $8.2 million in South Korea, $8.17 million in Brazil, $7.1 million in Russian Federation, $6 million in France, $5.9 million in Australia and $5.3 million in Mexico. The previous Wolverine films were - X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013).
The actor revealed earlier this year he's retiring from playing the character as he feels it's the right time to bow out. I'm not brooding on it, but I've come to a point where the numbers are against you.
The $85.3 million weekend total is the 5th highest opening all-time for an R-rated movie, jumping over the 2015 release, "Fifty Shades of Grey" ($85.1 million). For example, people were surprised both The Force Awakens and Rogue One didn't have post-credit scenes. even though Disney hasn't planned to have them for any of the films in the franchise.
"The idea was - all (or most of) the X-Men were dead". "Logan is someone who is most scared of intimacy, and so he wants to be alone and do things for himself".
This audition video has Hugh Jackman saying lines with a person posing as Rogue, (played by Anna Paquin in the film). In addition to highlighting references to the comics and movies, it also offers a semi-comprehensive look at Wolverine's timeline throughout the nine X-Men films.
Jackman has said it will be his final performance as Wolverine, whose claws he has worn for 17 years. When a young mysterious mutant with great similarities to Wolverine emerges, bringing trouble, the beloved characters go on one final journey. But he says he wanted to craft a film that honoured Wolverine's comic book roots. With X-23 going off to hang out with the other mutants at the end of the film, presumably her adventures in any sequel would involve them as well. "I really liked Patrick Stewart at Professor X as always, so I hope he continues being in movies, especially more X-Men movies, if possible".
