James Mangold’s Logan took everyone by force back in March. Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine was a thrilling, brutal and emotional experience. It performed incredibly well at the box office and received widespread praise from critics. So unsurprisingly, 20th Century Fox has big plans for it. Deadline reports that the studio recently sent out Logan screeners to the Academy voters, which makes it the first film of the year to do so. It will be interesting to see how a non-traditional superhero film like Logan will resonate with the voters when up against some of the other Oscar contenders. But anything from the film’s strong lead performances by Jackman and Patrick Stewart to the stunning direction and cinematography could easily keep it in the running.
Logan is currently out on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. We will keep you updated as further information becomes available.
