Answer to Trivia

Debuting on a massive 4,071 screens in the United States, Logan is the current R-rated champ when it comes to widest opening ever. The film is also the last time that actor Hugh Jackman will portray the stalwart X-Men character on screen.

In fact, Logan is the first X-Men film to receive an R rating as each of the previous films in the franchise were rated PG-13. As it stands, the record will probably stand until Deadpool 2 comes out next year.

Interestingly, Ryan Reynolds actually debuted Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the character was rather flat as they made a point to silence the "Merc with a Mouth" by sewing his mouth shut. This was done to ensure a PG-13 rating at the time.

Logan is now available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
