The director of 'Le Mans 66' and 'Logan' shares some of Martin Scorsese's comic book views, but thinks Marvel has become an easy target.
Everyone agrees James Mangold’s racing drama looks brilliant, but it’s Christian Bale’s accent that’s got people talking.
Screenwriter Michael Green talks exclusively to Yahoo Movies about Murder on the Orient Express, its sequel and remediating Agatha Christie's bigoted writing.
What would make the already pretty flipping moody X-Men movie ‘Logan’ even moodier? Taking out all the colour, that’s what. And according to director James Mangold, that could well be the plan. Asked by a fan to get right on converting the movie to monochrome on Twitter, he replied to the affirmative, saying simply: “Workin’ on it.” @AdamMcDee Workin' on it.
Hugh Jackman returns for his last hurrah as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ this week, and it’s unlike any other superhero movie you’ve ever seen. It also feels very much like a James Mangold film with more in common with ‘3:10 to Yuma’ and ‘Cop Land’ thematically than it does even with his previous X-Men outing, 2013’s ‘The Wolverine’. The director credits the film’s singular tone and vision on the freedom granted by 20th Century Fox’s which allowed him to make a film that stood apart from the X-Men universe.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see. The film is unlike any superhero movie before it. Essentially a western, it’s grisly, astoundingly mature and director James Mangold can’t believe he got to make it.
