That sense of spectacle is present in these new posters for The Greatest Showman , Fox’s original musical starring Hugh Jackman as the visionary circus founder and notorious hoaxster.

Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine has brought in the crowds, with ‘Logan’ delivering a sturdy $237.8 million (that’s just shy of £200 million) at the box office. Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman’s troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet. Presumed to be the final outing for Wolverine, it plays more like a late period John Wayne western than it does like a conventional superhero film’.
Since Hugh Jackman first teased he was to hang up Wolverine’s adamantium claws for good and step away from the role he first played 17 years ago, many naturally wondered what drove him to making the decision.

20th Century Fox released the sombre first trailer for ‘Logan’, and it’s a doozy.

I just saw [director] Jim Mangold today. He’s editing away and finishing that,” Jackman told ET Online. “There’s going to be some stuff coming out in the next week or so. That’s all I’ll say.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ director Bryan Singer has revealed that he pitched the idea of introducing X-23 - “the female Wolverine" - into the ongoing X-Men series. As 'Apocalypse’ hits cinemas, featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in his penultimate appearance as the character, Fox will naturally be looking for ways to replace him - and X-23 certainly represents one such way.

Yes, the Australian is one of the biggest box office stars in the world, but that’s largely thanks to his multiple appearances as Wolverine across the X-Men universe.
