You might assume that by now, everyone is aware of the R-rating for "Logan," 20th Century Fox's latest X-Men film, but the Alamo Draft House isn't taking any chances. As such, the theater has released a warning for parents who may believe that since it features 12-year-old Dafne Keen co-starring alongside Hugh Jackman, the upcoming Wolverine flick is similar to the character's previous PG and PG-13 outings.
"Attention Parents: Important Info About Logan," the flyer reads. Please note that Logan isn't your typical superhero movie. This film is RATED R for Extreme and Brutal Violence. Given the disturbing content, we do NOT recommend that children see Logan."
The theater has also shared the poster in a tweet, pointing out that the film is not like your typical kid's cartoon.
Parents, take heed... LOGAN isn't a Saturday morning cartoon.

Opening March 3, “Logan” is set in the near future, years after the epilogue of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In it, a weary Logan, whose healing factor is failing, cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
The film stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen and Stephen Merchant.
