Logan

Logan: Three new promotional photos for Logan have been released online and at least one lends credence to the idea that the movie is aiming for an R-rating. All three black and white photos look quite foreboding; one shows the aftermath of a fight, another shows a sign in Spanish that suggests Wolverine may spend time in Mexico and another suggests a motel as a key location. The final Wolverine solo movie starring Hugh Jackman will open in theaters on March 3, 2017. [Instagram via THR]
