Hugh Jackman On 'One Of The Great' Actors Patrick Stewart


Hugh Jackman Patrick Stewart

If you have ever seen them together off the set of 'Logan', you will know that Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart make very great friends indeed. After working together on the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverine' films for seventeen years, they have developed quite the bond - a chemistry obvious in their latest film 'Logan'.

LoganHugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'

'Logan' may well be the last time Hugh and Patrick play their respective roles of Wolverine and Professor X, and that only made this third and final Wolverine movie all the more intense. These characters are facing troubles they've never had before as age finally catches up with them - a factor that both the actors can relate to as they hang up their X-Men boots.

Patrick Stewart On 'Highly Dangerous' Charles Xavier


Patrick Stewart

For Sir Patrick Stewart's last hurrah as Professor Charles Xavier in the third and final Wolverine film 'Logan', the actor really got to spread his wings with the character. No longer is the leader of the X-Men a level-headed wise old mutant, he's an unhinged and unpredictable mess.

LoganHugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'

Even mutants get old, as we see with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the final installation of his spin-off film series. He doesn't heal as quickly as he used to, which means that he never gets a chance to get on top of his game before the next fight comes around. Professor X, however, is a whole other story; age has hit him in a way no-one could have expected.

Logan Review

Excellent

Hugh Jackman returns to his signature role one last time (so he says), reuniting with filmmaker James Mangold, who also directed 2013's The Wolverine. But this doesn't feel like any other X-Men movie; it strikes a sombre, gritty tone from the start to take the audience on a dark and rather brutal road trip. So while it feels rather long and repetitive, the movie also has a strong emotional kick.

It's set in the year 2029, when mutants have been wiped off the planet, and no new ones have been born for years. Hiding out in a drunken haze as a Texas limo driver, Logan aka Wolverine (Jackman) has stashed Charles aka Professor X (Patrick Stewart) across the border in Mexico, watched over by albino caretaker Caliban (Stephen Merchant). Then a nurse (Elizabeth Rodriguez) appears asking for Logan's help to transport the young Laura (Dafne Keen) to North Dakota. And Laura clearly has a genetic connection with Logan. It also turns out that she has escaped from a Mexico City hospital, so as Logan, Charles and Laura hit the road, the ruthless henchman Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and sinister Dr Rice (Richard E. Grant) are hot on their trail.

Mangold holds all of this in careful control, never tipping over into the usual whiz-bang Hollywood superhero action chaos (the violence is especially grisly). The story moves at a steady pace that adds an involving note of desperation to each sequence. This also makes the movie feel a bit repetitive and even wheel-spinning at times. Since the baddies are able to stay right on the heroes' heels, it's clear that even a nicely offhandedly sojourn with a farmer (Eriq La Salle) and his family will be short-lived. But the gnawing intensity, while never quite building into proper suspense, gets deep under the skin as it fleshes out the characters.

'Green Room' Tops Our List Of 2016's Most Exciting Horrors


Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Robin Williams, Steve Martin, Tom Cruise: 10 Most Unexpected Bad Guys In Movies


Patrick Stewart Robin Williams Leonardo Dicaprio

Some actors are born to play bad guys; Christoph Waltz, Christopher Lee, Alan Rickman. We're comfortable with them being the antagonist. However, some evil roles come from actors that are so unlikely, it seriously gives us the creeps. Patrick Stewart is only the latest to warp our perception of him.

Here are ten of our favourite moments actors have gone beyond the good guy stereotype:

Green Room - Teaser Trailer


The Ain't Rights are a punk band looking for their big break and until that comes along, they're willing to tour and play any gig they're offered. When the band is given the chance to play a gig at short notice, they pack their bags and road trip to the Oregon venue.

The band work through their set of songs including a cover of The Dead Kennedys' track 'Nazi Punks F**k Off', some might say an odd choice of song given the current crowd of people they're playing to. As the band come off stage they return to the green room only to discover that they've stumbled upon a gruesome crime scene - a murder to be precise.

Locked in the green room and quickly evaluating their options, it seems that they're now the ones being targeted by the vicious venue owner, Darcy Banker, and his neo-Nazi gang. Held against their will, with no connection to the outside world, it becomes evident that Banker isn't going to allow the group to make it through the night alive.
