Logan IMAX Exclusive Poster Goes Old-School with Wolverine & X-23
The newest poster for Logan has arrived, and this one is an IMAX exclusive. The new poster has a very old school feel to it, playing up the combination of old Western and vengeance film connections that a lot of the marketing has centered around.
Hugh Jackman stands center as Logan, with Patrick Stewart as the aged (and downtrodden looking) Professor Xavier next to him. The only one of the trio looking right at the "camera" is Dafne Keen as X-23, her claws extended (Wolverine's claws are out too, of course). It's an interesting choice of angles for each of the characters - Logan is looking away, into the distance, Xavier is looking down, and X-23 dead ahead.
Boyd Holbrook's Donald Pierce, the cyborg Reaver coming after X-23, is the only easily visible villain, though he has a lot of henchmen behind him. In classic Western poster style, the setting sun back-lights them all. Check out the full poster, along with other images and posters from the film, in the gallery below.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (Logan), Boyd Holbrook (Donald Pierce), Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier), Dafne Keen (Laura Kinney/X-23), Doris Morgado (Maria), Stephen Merchant (Caliban), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Gabriela), and Richard E. Grant (Dr. Zander Rice). James Mangold is directing and helped on the screenplay along with Scott Frank and Michael Green.
Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
