This is the most recent, probably last installment of the X-Men series.
-Logan is caring for an ailing Professor X while attempting to hide from the world. His attempts at hiding are hampered by a young mutant on the run who bears all too many similarities to him who wants to get to a safe place in North Dakota

-Hugh Jackman: Logan/X-24
-Patrick Stewart: Professor Charles Xavier
-Dafne Keen: Laura
-Boyd Holbrook: Pierce
-Stephen Merchant: Caliban
-Elizabeth Rodriguez: Gabriela
-Richard E. Grant: Dr. Rice
-Eriq La Salle: Will Munson
-Elise Neal: Kathryn Munson
-Quincy Fouse: Nate Munson

Did You Know?
-In order to look elderly and sick, Sir Patrick Stewart had to lose 21 pounds. He had never deliberately lost weight for a role before. Hugh Jackman also held him genuinely in all the scenes of Wolverine carrying Professor X

-During the scene where Laura and Charles are watching the film Shane, he mentions that was a film he remembered seeing as a child. This was improvised because the film was one of the first memories he had during his childhood at the theatre
-Hugh Jackman had stated in interviews that he learned his American accent from copying Johnny Depp
-During Professor X's seizure episodes, Hugh Jackman didn't act as if being pushed away. He was held back by a rope pulled by two men to give a realistic impression of being restrained
-Out of all the X-Men movies featuring Wolverine, Hugh Jackman said this was the hardest he has ever trained for a film
-For scenes where Logan was shirtless, Hugh Jackman went through a 48 hour period of dehydration to look emaciated. He does not recommend doing this and he used the same concept for his role as prisoner Jean Valjean in Les Miserables
-During the first half of the movie, when Logan is shown driving a limo, his name is displayed as James Howlett. This was the birth name of Wolverine in the X-Men comics and was also used in X-Men Origins: Wolverine
-When Nate is seen in his room and Laura comes in, deathcore posters can be seen dotting the walls. Deathcore is a sub-genre of heavy metal that combines death metal and hardcore metal. Ironically, he is seen listening to rap/pop music on his phone. The bands on the wall include All Shall Perish, Dr. Acula and Suicide Silence
-This was the last film for Hugh Jackman to play Wolverine. He said that because of a touch of skin cancer and his age that he would retire from the role
-In one of the X-Men comics, "Old Man Logan", Mysterio tricks Logan in to killing the X-Men while in the movie, Professor X kills the X-Men through one of his seizures
-In the comic "Death of Wolverine", it's suggested that the adamantium in his skeleton contains radiation from the Nagasaki bombing. In the film, it's suggested he is being slowly poisoned by unknown reasons, possibly the skeleton in his body
-Hugh Jackman did double duty, playing both Logan and X-24. This references the first X-Men movie where Mystique transforms into Wolverine
