Logan in black and white is coming to theaters for one night

Everyone knows that when you put a movie in black and white it gets instantly more serious and more art house. This is a scientifically proven fact. That's why James Mangold's Logan, already the most art house main stream super hero flick o...

How It Should Have Ended gives Logan a grand send-off

If Hugh Jackman had to have a swan song as Wolverine, Logan was the best possible outcome. A superhero movie that didn't feel like a superhero movie, the film served as a grim, melancholy, violent capstone for Jackman's run as the character...

Logan nets $85 million at box office

With the amount of buzz going into Logan and the positive flooding out from it it may be hard to understand why studio execs were nervous about the film. It was a risky movie, but that risk has paid off with Logan pulling in more ...

Why Logan is the bravest studio film of the year

By now we've all seen Logan, and if you haven't then you wasted your Thursday night by not going to it. My guess is that it's a bit of a divisive film. Some people are going to come out of it loving it, like we did, and others are going to ...

 
 
Logan Review photo

Review: Logan

(This is a republishing of the original review, which posted two weeks ago.) Logan is a response to a litany of unprecedented events. Comic book films are more popular than ever, the X-Men series is still a viable franchise s...

Logan will have a post credit scene

We here at Flixist friggin love Logan. It's a ballsy, brave, brash, violent and intriguing. It has it's flaws, but they're only flaws because it was just so damn different. One not-so-big difference from other Marvel films is a lack of afte...

 
 
Logan SB spot photo

Logan gets a damn good Super Bowl spot

Logan has basically been a master class as to how to generate hype from trailers. Although we've seen most of the same footage -- this Super Bowl spot does include a few seconds of new stuff -- I'm pretty sure each time we see it it's been ...

Newest Logan trailer is bloody good

We were all stricken by the first Logan trailer for its gritty setting, somber tone, and older Logan, and it looks like the second trailer delivers that even more so. The third, and final, Wolverine film follows Logan as he struggles to kee...

 
 
 
Logan trailer in LEGO photo

Watch the trailer for Logan recreated with LEGO

The trailer for Logan really impressed me. If Hugh Jackman's last ride as Wolverine is a post-apocalyptic road movie western, I am all for that. Better it's something distinctly non-X-Men-looking rather than some dumb, rote X-Men flick. (Of...

Final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer features a very special guest

If you were somehow not convinced to see X-Men: Apocalypse, you sure will be after the final trailer for it. We get a little more footage than we have in the past, some cool looking fight scenes, a little bit of information for fans (and it...

Michael Green now writing new Wolverine movie

People hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but people seemed to like The Wolverine, so a sequel presses on. Following the Fast and Furious school of naming, Hugh Jackman's one final ride will be called simply: Wolverine. Snappy. The project's o...

The Wolverine 2 to follow X-Men: Apocalypse

We've known for a little while that a sequel to last year's The Wolverine has been in the works, but returning director James Mangold recently gave us an idea of when that movie would be coming. Since X-Men: Apocalypse is currently set as ...

The Wolverine getting a sequel because money

Because the X-Men spin-off sequel The Wolverine did so well in theaters (making $413 million dollars worldwide), it's only natural that talk of another film would start soon because people like makin' money. According to the good folks at D...

NRH's Weekly Analysis: X-Men something something, Part 2

So last week I took a look at the original X-Men film trilogy and so, as promised, here's some thoughts on the following films. They're an odd bunch; two solo ventures and a complete reboot/prequel/fanservice extravaganza. X-Men h...

Here's sweet concept art of Iron Man 3 and The Wolverine

The Wolverine and Iron Man 3 turned out surprisingly well. Since the character building was done well, it would've been a shame if the rest of the movie wasn't handled as well. Josh Nizzi (an artist who's worked on The Avengers, Django Unch...

 
 
Wolverine Review photo

Review: The Wolverine

Around the Flixist office we've been discussing the screenwriting book Save the Cat, which has become Hollywood's sort of point-by-point playbook for how to put a film together since it came out. It's made a lot of movies feel a lot alike s...

X-Men: Days of Future Past gets two not terrible posters

When the first posters for X-Men: First Class appeared to be nothing more than a noteworthy idea ruined by terrible photoshop decisions, you'd think Fox would keep from trying that "merging old and new" again. Well, they tried again and the...

See The Wolverine early and free

There have been plenty of big, superhero movies this summer, but the last one into the gate is The Wolverine. Judging from its god awful predecessor we shouldn't have much faith that it will be good, but from the trailers it looks like the ...

Let's hope The Wolverine is as good as this fight clip

The clip above contains an extended look at the fight on a speeding bullet train teased in The Wolverine's trailers. From what I can see Hugh Jackman is hilariously angry, everyone seems to have enough strength to not only jump in midair (...

Trailer: The Wolverine

I get less and less excited about The Wolverine as we get closer to release. It was already the summer superhero film I was least looking forward to, but the trailers just aren't exciting me. This new one digs a bitter deeper into wha...

Silver Samurai gets solo poster

Last Saturday, a new poster for director James Mangold’s The Wolverine was released. This time the poster was for the villain in the movie, Silver Samurai. The poster was done in the same watercolor style as the first poster that was ...

New image from The Wolverine is staring you down

This new image from The Wolverine features Hugh Jackman about to jack someone the hell up. I don't know what the context is for this image, but I assume Wolverine is urinating in the corner of a Japanese nightclub and someone has rudely int...

Hugh Jackman puts a shirt on in new Wolverine images

Don't worry. Images of shirtless Hugh Jackman with claws are still readily available, but it is nice to see that he will be donning some upper body clothing at some points during the upcoming The Wolverine. And damn if it ain't one snazzy g...

New Wolverine image is just like the others, shirtless

I'm noticing a pattern here. The Wolverine is all about reminding us of how sexy Hugh Jackman is. No seriously. From the very first veiny promo image, to the reveal of his bone claws, to the badass motion poster, each image has a shirtless ...

New poster for The Wolverine is greatest film poster ever

While The Wolverine may not be as awesome as it potentially could have been under Darren Aronofsky, it's still shaping up to be a formidable entry in the X-Men film franchise. With the film taking place in Japan, focusing on Loga...

The Wolverine gets bone claws, set after The Last Stand

After the first sexy teaser image, this new image (courtesy of Empire) has Wolvie sporting some bone claws. Which admittedly might have been the only good thing Origins had going for it other than Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. On top of the im...

Mark Millar is consulting on Fox's Marvel properties

Guys, I think this comic book movie business is getting pretty serious. This is usually where you would see a pic of slowpoke, but you'll just have to use your imagination. My point is, studios are going to do whatever they can to ensure th...

First image of The Wolverine has a veiny Hugh Jackman
