Logan premiered at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival on February 17, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on March 3, 2017, in IMAX and standard formats. The film received praise for its screenplay, direction, acting (particularly by Jackman, Stewart and Keen), emotional depth, and departure from traditional superhero films. It became one of the best reviewed films in the X-Men franchise, with some critics regarding it as one of the greatest superhero films ever made, and it was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2017. It was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 90th Academy Awards, becoming the first live-action superhero film ever to be nominated for screenwriting. It grossed over $619 million worldwide and became the fourth-highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.
In a dystopian 2029, no mutants have been born in 25 years. An aging Logan’s healing ability, weakened by decades of fighting off the toxicity of his adamantium-coated skeleton, has begun to fail. Working as a limo driver in El Paso, Texas, he and mutant tracker Caliban care for 90-year-old Charles Xavier, Logan’s mentor and founder of the X-Men, in an abandoned smelting plant in northern Mexico. Xavier has developed dementia that causes him to have destructive seizures; it is alluded that one year prior, one such seizure released a powerful wave of his telepathic powers that killed seven mutants, leaving the three as the last of the X-Men.
Logan reluctantly agrees to escort Gabriela Lopez, a former nurse for biotechnology corporation Alkali-Transigen, and a young girl, Laura, to Eden, a refuge in North Dakota. Later finding Gabriela dead, Logan is confronted at his Mexican hideout by her killer Donald Pierce, who is Transigen’s cyborg chief of security. Pierce is looking for Laura, who has stowed away in Logan’s limo and has similar powers to him. She, Logan, and Xavier escape Pierce and his Reavers, but Caliban is tortured into tracking Laura.
A video on Gabriela’s cellphone shows that Transigen created Laura and other children from mutant DNA to become weapons; Laura was created from Logan’s DNA. As they proved difficult to control and Transigen found an alternative, the children were to be killed, but Gabriela and other nurses helped some escape. In Oklahoma City, Logan discovers that Eden appears in Laura’s X-Men comic and tells her it is fictional. The Reavers arrive, but Xavier has a seizure and incapacitates everyone except Logan and Laura, who kill the attackers and inject Xavier with his medication. As they flee, Dr. Zander Rice, head of Transigen, arrives to help Pierce.
