The pair re-united as Wolverine and Charles Xavier one last time on 'Logan'.
If you have ever seen them together off the set of 'Logan', you will know that Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart make very great friends indeed. After working together on the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverine' films for seventeen years, they have developed quite the bond - a chemistry obvious in their latest film 'Logan'.

'Logan' may well be the last time Hugh and Patrick play their respective roles of Wolverine and Professor X, and that only made this third and final Wolverine movie all the more intense. These characters are facing troubles they've never had before as age finally catches up with them - a factor that both the actors can relate to as they hang up their X-Men boots.

'Logan' sees another side to the 'X-Men' leader.
For Sir Patrick Stewart's last hurrah as Professor Charles Xavier in the third and final Wolverine film 'Logan', the actor really got to spread his wings with the character. No longer is the leader of the X-Men a level-headed wise old mutant, he's an unhinged and unpredictable mess.

Even mutants get old, as we see with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the final installation of his spin-off film series. He doesn't heal as quickly as he used to, which means that he never gets a chance to get on top of his game before the next fight comes around. Professor X, however, is a whole other story; age has hit him in a way no-one could have expected.

He wants to band together with his US friends to help 'fight' Donald Trump.
Sir Patrick Stewart has decided to show his support for the American people in the best way possible; by requesting US citizenship so that he may help 'fight' the oppressive policies that are being put in place in the wake of President Donald Trump's election.

The 'Logan' star has always been vocal about his political views, and indeed most recently about his feelings towards Donald Trump when he suggested in a Tweet that his recent stay near the White House was causing some sleeping issues.

Hugh Jackman returns to his signature role one last time (so he says), reuniting with filmmaker James Mangold, who also directed 2013's The Wolverine. But this doesn't feel like any other X-Men movie; it strikes a sombre, gritty tone from the start to take the audience on a dark and rather brutal road trip. So while it feels rather long and repetitive, the movie also has a strong emotional kick.
It's set in the year 2029, when mutants have been wiped off the planet, and no new ones have been born for years. Hiding out in a drunken haze as a Texas limo driver, Logan aka Wolverine (Jackman) has stashed Charles aka Professor X (Patrick Stewart) across the border in Mexico, watched over by albino caretaker Caliban (Stephen Merchant). Then a nurse (Elizabeth Rodriguez) appears asking for Logan's help to transport the young Laura (Dafne Keen) to North Dakota. And Laura clearly has a genetic connection with Logan. It also turns out that she has escaped from a Mexico City hospital, so as Logan, Charles and Laura hit the road, the ruthless henchman Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and sinister Dr Rice (Richard E. Grant) are hot on their trail.
Mangold holds all of this in careful control, never tipping over into the usual whiz-bang Hollywood superhero action chaos (the violence is especially grisly). The story moves at a steady pace that adds an involving note of desperation to each sequence. This also makes the movie feel a bit repetitive and even wheel-spinning at times. Since the baddies are able to stay right on the heroes' heels, it's clear that even a nicely offhandedly sojourn with a farmer (Eriq La Salle) and his family will be short-lived. But the gnawing intensity, while never quite building into proper suspense, gets deep under the skin as it fleshes out the characters.

In a rather strange discussion, Stewart revealed to Graham Norton that he believed he had been circumcised as a child until very recently.
File this one under bizarre: Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed that he used to believe that he was circumcised for the vast majority of his life – until his wife told him he actually wasn’t!
The 76 year old screen and stage legend appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, in an episode due to air on Friday (February 24th), to talk about his new movie Logan, in which he stars as X-Men head Professor Charles Xavier for the final time.
Sir Patrick Stewart's conversation on 'The Graham Norton Show' was rather eyebrow-raising
Jackman even took a pay cut to ensure they could make the R-rated movie.
Studio bosses were initially concerned that Logan, the final film in the Wolverine franchise, would be too dark, according to Twentieth Century Fox Film chairman Stacey Snider.
Speaking at an Q&A session, Snider admitted that there was even a debate that the film, which sees Hugh Jackman’s character now past his prime, would be just “freakin’ boring” for audiences.

In an almost fourth-wall-breaking episode, the latest installment of the Wolverine movie series acknowledges the 'X-Men' comic book series. But this time Logan is far from the superhero his fans are reading about. Age has finally caught up with him - as it does with everyone - and he's no longer as fast or as agile as he used to be. His injuries don't heal as quickly as they used to either, but he's not the only one dealing with the crippling effect of old age. He's currently caring for Professor X in a hide-out, but their lives are about to become disrupted once again with the arrival of a new mutant. Laura is an 11-year-old girl with powers and abilities that match Logan's own. There are dark forces closing in on her, however, and as much as she is capable of taking care of herself, she needs guidance, protection and discipline from somebody who knows her struggle.

The actor joined thousands of protestors in London who marched together against the presidency of Donald Trump.
The placard held by actor Ian McKellen as he joined the Women’s March in London has been declared the best sign of the day by the internet.
The sign featured a picture of McKellen’s pal Patrick Stewart as ‘Star Trek’s’ Captain Picard facepalming, and pretty much summed up many people’s feelings of frustration and anger towards the Trump presidency.
