Goodbye Logan … Hello Laura! Hugh Jackman makes his 9th and final appearance as Wolverine in James Mangolds Logan, but fans will be introduced to a new kick-ass mutant named Laura Kinney and she definitely doesn’t disappoint.
Kinney (also known as X-23 in the Marvel comics) is played by 11 year-old actress Daphne Keen, and Jackman told HipHollywood he was a little nervous about passing the baton or should we say claws over to a little girl.
“I was very nervous when I read the outline,” said Jackman. “I was like that’s alot of screen time and not alot of dialogue for a young actress, and there’s nothing about this movie that can seem cute, [but] the moment I saw her tape, I was like how the hell did you do it Jim? He’s just phenomenal when it comes to finding people. He’s incredible.”
In the film Logan, Laura and an aging Professor Xavier  are on the run from a group of bounty hunters led by ‘Narcos’ actor Boyd Holbrook. But, believe it or not, Mangold was inspired by Little Miss Sunshine and wrote the script for Logan with that film in mind.
“The road trip element was all Jim Mangold,” explained Jackman of their early development conversations. “I said The Wrestler and Unforgiven and he said mix that with a Little Miss Sunshine, and I said perfect.”
“I was thinking about any other of my films, like the westerns, or dramas, or biopics that I have made — normal non-comic book movies — how would I drive this engine,” explained Mangold.  “It occurred to me to put them in the most mundane situation I can imagine, which is trapped in a vehicle driving across the country stopping for snacks.”
We certainly aren’t mad at James for putting family on full display in Logan … and we think fans are going to be in awe of Little Miss Laura.
Logan is in theaters March 3.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
