‘Logan’: Next X-Men Movie Officially Receives R Rating

Hugh Jackman Wolverine

There’s been a lot of talk about how Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie Logan would be rated R. That was first revealed back in February 2016 and confirmed three months later by Simon Kinberg, but the film had yet to receive an official rating. That is, until now. You know, just in case it wasn’t already clear by the teaser and last week’s trailer.

Director James Mangold broke the news on his personal Twitter page, revealing that Logan has been given this rating for “strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.” See the tweet below.

As previously reported, Logan will have its world premiere at next month’s Berlin International Film Festival in an out of competition slot.

Set in the near future, Logan follows Wolverine and Professor X in a climate where mutants are no longer a big part of the world’s population. The two come across a young girl named Laura, who has similar powers to the titular character and is being hunted by an evil corporation known as Transigen.

Logan opens in theaters on March 3, 2017. The cast also features Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, Richard E. Grant as Zander Rice, Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney/X-23, with Elizabeth Rodriguez, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.
