Hugh Jackman 'embarrassed' by shirtless scenes in first X-Men movie

Mar 06, 2017, 00:24

The film hit the theaters in India on 3rd March, Friday. That's an impressive return for a film that cost less than $5 million to make. Logan strikes a contemplative tone, which sets it apart from the other stand-alone Wolverine films. It should be noted though that both the first and second Wolverine film's experienced a significant drop in box office numbers in the following week.

But while Hugh trained hard to play the mutant Wolverine in the flicks, he admits he wasn't in peak physical condition when it came to filming Bryan Singer's X-Men back in 2000.

"Logan is good enough that you might forget it's a comic-book movie".

Read our review here, and watch our previous interview with Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart reflecting on their first day on X-Men and their final day on Logan. He has publicly stated that he intends to hang up Wolverine's claws. The movie is already touching $80 million on the United States box office and has garnered good reviews from the critics as well.

Logan reunites Hugh Jackman with The Wolverine director James Mangold and also stars Hugh Jackman, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal. While Logan earns a living by driving a limousine, getting drunk and getting into fights, Xavier's disintegrating mind compels him to stay sedated in order to keep his colossal psychic powers under control. Then you stop about 36 hours before your shoot, but because you've drunk so much water you're peeing all the time.

Even though there have been R-rated comic book-based movies before, it wasn't until the massive success of last year's R-rated Deadpool that studio executives at Fox - and elsewhere - came to accept the idea that comic book-based movies aimed exclusively at adults could actually succeed at the box office. "Critics embraced the film, hailing it as a comic book movie with bite, with Variety's Owen Gleiberman writing that "Logan" "...brings the saga to a satisfying finish".
