After 17 years of a brooding, bitter, violent Wolverine, I can't think of a better replacement than this violent, bitter and brooding little girl.
Well, it took eight years, but Hugh Jackman finally has a solid stand-alone Wolverine movie. "Logan" brought in a record-breaking $88 million-plus in its domestic debut and another $152 million overseas.
That's the best debut of the year so far and yet another testament to R-rated comic book films.
Last year, "Deadpool" blew everyone away with the biggest opening weekend for an R-rated film ever, proving you don't necessarily have to kiddie-proof your superhero flick for it to be successful.
20th Century Fox has doubled down on that theory with the fourth-biggest debut for an R-rated film ever in "Logan" this past weekend. Would I have enjoyed this film without little Logan stabbing bad guys in such gruesome detail? Sure. Would I have enjoyed it as much? Absolutely not.
Taking the No. 3 spot this week is the faith-based drama "The Shack," bringing in an estimated $16 million in its first week out. Like most films in this very specific category, "The Shack" has terrible reviews coupled with an extremely high score from moviegoers.
As for next week, another King Kong film nobody asked for.
