Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine appearance is earning good money for Twentieth-Century Fox, and is on path to be the fastest money-making R-Rated film ever released in March, and 5th best earning R-Rated film ever - - after Deadpool and Matrix Reloaded. Here's how Deadline Hollywood looks at it:
"At a time when studios have no choice but to plunge the depths of their comic-book superhero universes and gamble on new characters while desperately trying to reboot icons like Batman and Spider-Man, Fox is taking a cue from last year’s Deadpool. Let’s face it, the Pico Blvd. studiohas seen the light and knows that fanboys (who just get older) are tiring from PG-13 comic-book tropes where there’s always a big noisy battle to save the world at the expense of leveling a metropolis (now how many times have we seen that?). With Logan, Fox has delivered a gritty, blood-dripping, Dirty Harry-like, raw X-Men movie that jibes more with the canon’s sensibility than its previous mutant teenage angst-in-tights titles."
