Follow in Wolverine’s Footsteps to See These Limited Edition ‘Logan’ Posters
Although it’s been years since I stopped collecting comic books, I can still remember the excitement and frustration of variant covers. Nothing triggered the collector in me quite like the multiple variants of a landmark comic; instead of owning just one copy of issue #500 of whatever, I found myself weighing the options of picking up multiple copies of the same thing, especially when I really enjoyed one or more of the variants. It was the perfect way for Marvel or DC to bait the hook in me, and it wasn’t long before they realized they could do the very same thing with their movie posters.
As part of the publicity for Logan, 20th Century Fox has identified six real-life movie theaters located along the path that Logan travels in the film. Each theater will be home to an exclusive Logan movie poster made specially for that location. The artists for these posters have made a name for themselves on a variety of Marvel and DC comic books alike, including The Uncanny X-Men, Batgirl, Daredevil, and many, many more. Here’s your complete list of artists and theaters:
Art Adams at Cinemark 20 and XD (El Paso, TX)
Nate Powell at Regal Spotlight Stadium 14 (Norman, OK)
Becky Cloonon at Warren East (Wichita, KS)
Jeff Lemire at Grand Island 7 (Grand Island, NE)
Babs Tarr at Carmike 10 (Rapid City, SD)
Bill Sienkiewicz at the Grand 6 (Williston, ND)
Will some adventurous fan make a road trip through the Midwest just to take a picture of themselves with every exclusive Logan poster? Why not! There are people who plan road trips based around giant balls of yarn or the world’s largest chicken wing; compared to that, a trip centered around movie posters seems downright sentimental. And if you’re one of those people stuck on the coasts, fear not: you can also get your very own miniature copy of these posters while supplies last by visiting the Atom Tickets promotion for Logan.
Here’s the full plot synopsis for the latest Wolverine film:
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Dafne Keen, with supporting appearances by Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, and Stephen Merchant. The film will slash its way into theaters on March 3, 2017.
