James Mangold Offers a Look into ‘Logan’ Scoring Session

After Cliff Martinez’s last minute exit as the composer of Logan, myself and many fans were concerned that the score for the film wasn’t going to live up to the quality that has been foreshadowed by the film’s incredible trailer. Fortunately, 20th Century Fox found a more than satisfactory replacement with composer Marco Beltrami (The Wolverine3:10 to Yuma). As of now, Beltrami has already written the score for the film and recording sessions are underway at the Newman stage on the Fox lot.

James Mangold took to twitter yesterday to share a brief look into the recording for what sounds like an intense scene. The music itself feels like a perfect fit for the western tone evoked in both the trailer as well as all the images released throughout the film’s social media campaign. Check it out below!

New ‘Logan’ Photo Clarifies Richard E. Grant’s Role

The marketing campaign for Hugh Jackman’s third and final outing as Wolverine is continuing to ramp up to the film’s release via social media. The official Instagram has dropped another substantial reveal confirming Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice.

The film features an older Logan on the run from Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and the Reavers in the year 2024 as he protects and mentors Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) A.K.A. X-23. The film also features a plot involving the government turning mutant children into killing machines in a top-secret government program called ‘Transigen’.

In the comics, Laura was the daughter of Dr. Sarah Kinney, who was a renowned mutant geneticist that was tasked with creating a clone of Wolverine after the top secret government program failed to recreate the Weapon X experiment.

After the program had failed, Kinney proposed they create a female clone due to the Y-chromosome of Logans genetic sample being damaged. Despite her superiors protégé, Dr. Zander Rice denying her, she went ahead and produced a female subject anyway ultimately convincing her superior, Dr. Martin Sutter to move forward with the experiment. Rice then forced Kinney to serve as a surrogate mother for the clone as punishment for her insubordination leading her to give birth to Laura.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant and Boyd Holbrook. Written by David James Kelly and Michael Green. Directed by James Mangold.

In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.

Wolverine Rescues X-23 in New ‘Logan’ Photo

Finally a promotional image for Logan that’s in color! The third and final outing for Hugh Jackman as the clawed mutant Wolverine had been ramping up to the release of its first official trailer via its social media campaign with a slew of moody black and white photos. Since the release of the trailer, Fox has continued to drop black and white photos but it seems kind of pointless knowing the film is not going to release in black at white, at least not theatrically at this point.

Empire Magazine released a color image of Wolverine rescuing X-23 who seems to have been held prisoner. The film is set in the year 2024 and will feature a plot involving the government turning mutant children into killing machines in a top-secret government program called ‘Transigen’. X-23 is a young girl named Laura Kinney, daughter of Dr. Sarah Kinney, who was a renowned mutant geneticist that was tasked with creating a clone of Wolverine after the top secret government program failed to recreate the Weapon X experiment. Kinney — against her superiors orders — produced a female subject after she proposed to create a female Wolverine due to the Y-Chromosome of the only genetic sample in the program being damaged. As punishment for her insubordination, Kinney was forced to serve as surrogate mother for the clone leading to the birth of Laura.

In the film set in a seemingly X-Men absent future, an older Logan and X-23 are being hunted by the Reavers, a group of cyborg assassins led by Donald Pierce (Boyd Holdbrook).

In addition to serving as mentor and protector of X-23, Wolverine has his hands full taking care of Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart) who is in a state of cognitive decline. It seems in his age, the Professor’s powers have gotten the best of him. Assisting Wolverine is Caliban (Stephen Merchant), an albino mutant who has the ability to track other mutants.

The film’s official synopsis reads:

In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.

‘Logan’: Scar Tissue Coats New Image

James Mangold uploads yet another picture revealing Hugh Jackman as Logan staring wearily into what appears to be a bathroom mirror. As previously discussed by Mangold when Logan’s current timeline was broached in a recent interview, it’s now very obvious that Logan is losing his ability to heal immediately as he was once able to.

Seeing the character of Logan in the throes of action has been supported by the safety net of his healing factor; now, possibly letting it sink in that he has to be a little bit more cautious with his physical body than he has been used to, how will Logan restrain himself from using his mutant form as a deadly Weapon?

First Look at Stephen Merchant as Caliban in ‘Logan’

The Logan marketing campaign via social media continues. Today we have our first look at Stephen Merchant as Caliban. The albino mutant will be assisting Wolverine as he takes care of Professor X who is in a state of cognitive decline.

The Logan marketing campaign via social media continues. Today we have our first look at Stephen Merchant as Caliban. The albino mutant will be assisting Wolverine as he takes care of Professor X who is in a state of cognitive decline.

In the comics, Caliban was a mutant with the ability to track other mutants. After he was captured by the Watchtower (an anti-mutant research facility), Caliban was liberated by Wolverine and several other mutants. He was one of the few who regained his powers post M-Day.

Since we already know Logan and Xavier’s powers aren’t what they used to be in a future where humans are asking “Where have all the mutants gone?”, it seems likely Wolverine and the Professor aren’t the only ones who’s powers are diminishing.
