#Logan will be released in UK cinemas this week and anticipation for this #Film has been extremely high with fans of the X-Men franchise and film lovers in general. A lot of this excitement is down to the critical acclaim it has received from critics who have seen the film already and also because this will be the first R-rated X-Men film. This means we will finally see Wolverine, played for the final time by Hugh Jackman, unleashed in full fury to the public.
James Mangold, who directed Logan, recently spoke to Collider’s Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub and he stated how shocked he was that Fox allowed him to make Logan in the way he did. Mangold said that he couldn’t “believe they got away with this (making Logan)” in the sense that this film is a very “personal story” which was not constrained by the needs of a franchise. Mangold’s comments about the film should leave us very excited to see a director’s unrestrained vision for his film when Logan comes out for UK audiences to finally see this week.
P. J. Byrne joins Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage
P. J. Byrne is the latest to join the stellar cast on #Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage which is going to be a film adaptation of the classic video game. The Wolf of Wall Street actor joins Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, and Breanne Hill in a film which will tell the story of a gorilla, crocodile, and a wolf that destroy North American cities and landmarks. It is scheduled to release on 20th April 2018 and it is hoped that, after a string of disappointing video-game films, Rampage will stop the rot.
DreamWorks Animation working on Trolls 2
Trolls was a box-office success and a huge hit with families when it was released in Autumn 2016 which meant that it was more than likely that a sequel to the animated film would be announced sooner rather than later. Today was the day that we found out that Trolls 2 is in the works with the aim of both releasing it in April 2020 and continuing the success that the original Trolls brought to DreamWorks Animation.
