Video: Hugh Jackman, James Mangold and the Logan cast
20th Century Fox invited ComingSoon.net to a TV press day with Hugh Jackman and the Logan cast to talk about their critically-acclaimed (currently 93% at Rotten Tomatoes) mutant masterpiece, which opens in theaters this Friday. We chatted with Sir Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook and director James Mangold, while our specially-chosen Wolverine superfan Benjamin Weisenfeld got to sit down to chat with the man himself after cosplaying as Wolvie since Jackman started playing him in 2000. Weisenfeld and Jackman have a great, spirited conversation that you can check out in the player below, along with a separate player with our Stewart/Holbrook/Mangold interview!
Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan (Jackman) as he cares for an ailing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Also starring Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine) and scripted by David James Kelly, the 20th Century Fox will mark the ninth (and said to be final) time that Jackman has played the Marvel Comics character on the big screen. It will also reportedly be the final time Patrick Stewart will play Professor X.
