'Logan' Box Office Hit: Highest Opening Weekend For Any Wolverine Movie

Share

Logan hit the theaters only yesterday, but critics are already speculating it could be nominated for best picture next year.

The opening weekend total exceeded industry expectations that it would bring in about $70 million.

"As a movie, Logan takes a cue from its hero's slowed-down metabolism of invincibility".

At the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, an employee of the Essex Corp. could be seen retrieving Wolverine's genetic material.

"Logan" will have some competition at the box office in the coming weeks.

As the movie business grows more saturated with stories about costumed vigilantes, studios are trying to find ways to differentiate their own comic book adaptations.

Bad word-of-mouth and sharply critical opinions from movie reviewers hit both of these previous Wolverine movies hard once people knew what they were getting.

As Variety reported, the "Logan" movie made $85.3 million in its debut weekend so far, and is set to take in more.

The news of this nearly broke the internet all over India as X-Men, Wolverine and Shah Rukh fans in our country began to voice their opinions about Hugh Jackman's latest statement. "It opts for something different, and it largely works, giving Jackman a worthy final chapter to hang his claws on".

Out of the blue, a nurse called Gabriela (Elizabeth Rodriguez) contacts Logan and offers him $50,000 to drive a mysterious girl called Laura (Dafne Keen) to "a place up north" called Eden who is a vital link to a new generation of mutants. Even though movie is unlikely to break the Deadpool box office numbers of a year ago, you never know what the coming weeks will bring.

The Australian actor is known for his long-running role as Wolverine / Logan in the Marvel Comics superhero franchise, and most recently reprised his famous role in new movie Logan.

It's easy enough to understand where the Logan filmmaker is coming from, but it seems unusual to make such an effort to move away from the superhero genre when this movie fits so perfectly into it.
