Rising Sun Pictures, the visual-effects team behind 20th Century Fox’s Logan, has released a behind-the-scenes look at all the compositing and computer-enhancement that went into the notoriously gory X-Men spinoff. Uneasy stomachs, be warned…
From the opening scene alongside the limousine, to Logan’s slow-motion hallway brawl and a certain fan-favorite mutant’s unfortunate death, the reel gives a detailed glimpse at all the work that went into making the Hugh Jackman Wolverine film look as realistic as possible, revealing all the CGI limbs, blood and backdrops that looked as though they could’ve been completely real in the final cut of the film. If you haven’t seen Logan yet, it might be best to do so before watching this reel, as it contains some major spoilers for the Jackman-Wolverine swan song.
Take a look at Rising Sun Pictures’ Logan VFX reel below.
In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) at a remote outpost on the Mexican border. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant (Dafne Keen) who is very much like him. Logan must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.
Directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine), written by Mangold, Scott Frank (A Walk Among the Tombstones) and Michael Green (Alien: Covenant), and starring stars Hugh Jackman as the titular Canucklehead, Patrick Stewart as Charles, Dafne Keen as Laura, Boyd Holbrook as Pierce and Stephen Merchant as Caliban, Logan is now available on Blu-ray and DVD at all major retailers.
