There's been a lot of talk about James Mangold's LOGAN and what a fitting swan song it is for Hugh Jackman, but the time has now come for audiences to put their money where their mouth is. Fans have been craving some R-rated Wolverine action for a while now and Logan delivers that and then some! If the following news is any indication, it looks like the masses agree!

Deadline is reporting that LOGAN brought in $9.5 million from Thursday night screenings. That's the third-highest amount for an R-rated film, right behind THE HANGOVER PART II and DEADPOOL. Given the high ratings and last night's business, LOGAN is in a great position to bring in $70 million plus over this weekend.

This is actually great news for fans craving more adult-orientated material. DEADPOOL and LOGAN both represent very different comic book films for, not only their R-rating, but also their content. DEADPOOL sent a clear message to studios that audiences want something different, and if LOGAN continues that trend, we'll see more comic book films willing to tackle some serious subject matter. Sounds great! In the meantime, enjoy Hugh Jackman's last performance as Wolverine in LOGAN!

LOGAN is now in theaters.

After how horrible origins was, and how underwhelming the wolverine was, im hesitant about this movie, but sounds like its a great time. anything under 70 million would be a disappointment all things considering

Fox has finally found their footing

Before, I always wondered what Fox was good at when it came to comic book movies. They've been hit or miss with the X-Men movies and Fantastic Four is in complete disarray, but here we are two years in a row with great rated-R movies. I'd like to see this trend continue with Deadpool 2 slated for next year and presumably X-Force geared for 2019.

Best Wolvie Movie Yet! 8/10

Alright, don't bash my head in just yet. I loved the movie, but the villain issue almost killed it for me. I don't like either of the villains. There could have been a much better way to do what they did without sacrificing good story telling. I loved the plot, I loved the progression and I think it could have stood up on its own if they would have just stayed with the doctor as the main villian. I applaud them for not spending to much time on explaining what happened to all the mutants. I

I applaud them for not spending to much time on explaining what happened to all the mutants. I don't want a sad backstory of what happened the seven years between DOFP and this movie. The girl was amazing, Jackman was amazing, and Prof X killed it. The acting of the main talent was oscar standard. The ending though is left vague, the beginning is vague, the whole story is vague and I just wish they would have dug a little deeper.
