Hugh Jackman’s ‘Logan’ film officially rated ‘R’

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swan song Logan has formally been rated “R.”

The movies’s rating was verified Monday by director James Mangold who had written on Twitter, “Official: Please be recommended that Logan has been rated R for ‘strong intense assault and language throughout, and for brief nudity.'”

The rating comes on the heels of Fox’s other X-Men property Deadpool launching in 2016 with an “R” rating on its way to making talk opinions and $760 million at the world box office.

While talking with Uproxx in Dec, Mangold exposed that Jackman took a pay cut in order for the movie to receive the greater rating.

The newest movie trailer launched Thursday represents a more gritty, weakling and aggressive tale as Jackman’s aged Wolverine is seen fightting to guard a strange mutant girl with abilities similar to his own.

Also featuring Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Logan is set to arrive in cinemas March 3.
