Although we’ve received a pair of red band trailers from James Mangold’s Logan that have sure felt like the sure bet for an R-rating, however, even the director was a bit hesitant to think that his film would receive the wanted rating. But now with the film so shortly around the corner, the MPAA has officially given the film a rating, with reasoning that will get fans of the superhero genre very excited.
Mangold, who has been pretty active on social media (just as star Hugh Jackman) during the films marketing to this point, revealed on Twitter that his film was awarded an R-rating, and why is music to our ears!
While the director was taking a step back as far as the rating goes, it was always expected that Logan would be rated R. And with the trailers showcasing brutal pieces of action and teases of something even beyond an R-rating, the MPAA descriptions behind the rating is truly glorious. A comic book film about one of cultures most popular characters will feature “strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.” How incredible does that sound? As I said, the trailers have teased what this descriptions says, but finally seeing it official is something else.
The character has always been an R-rated character, and now that we’re finally getting that story and film 17 years after Hugh Jackman put on the claws for the first time to (supposedly) end his time as Wolverine? Count me in ten times over.
As well as the official rating reveal, Empire Magazine revealed a number of news images for the film that mainly focus on the unbelievable rage of Dafne Keen’s X-23, which of course, come off her true debut in the latest trailer. And just today, Jackman posted a brand poster for the movie, which may be the best of the bunch thus far. Check them all out below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. How pumped are you for this movie? Mangold’s Logan slices its way into theaters on March 3rd, 2017.
