LOGAN – The Ultimate Wolverine Story
Malaysia (1 March 2017) — From visionary writer director James Mangold comes the defining chapter in the cinematic saga of one of the greatest comic book heroes ever created. LOGAN sees Academy Award®-nominated actor Hugh Jackman reprise his iconic role as The Wolverine for one final time in a raw, powerfully dramatic standalone story of sacrifice and redemption.
It’s 2029. Mutants are gone—or very nearly so. An isolated, despondent Logan is drinking his days away in a hideout on a remote stretch of the Mexican border, picking up petty cash as a driver for hire. His companions in exile are the outcast Caliban and an ailing Professor X, whose singular mind is plagued by worsening seizures. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy abruptly end when a mysterious woman appears with an urgent request—that Logan shepherd an extraordinary young girl to safety. Soon, the claws come out as Logan must face off against dark forces and a villain from his own past on a live-or-die mission, one that will set the time-worn warrior on a path toward fulfilling his destiny.
LOGAN stars Hugh Jackman in the title role, alongside Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant and newcomer Dafne Keen. The film is directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine); produced by Hutch Parker, p.g.a., Simon Kinberg, p.g.a. and Lauren Shuler Donner; and distributed by 20th Century Fox. LOGAN opens in theatres worldwide on March 3, 2017.
