‘Logan’ To Premiere At Berlin Film Fest; Lineup Also Adds ‘T2: Trainspotting’ & More

The Berlin Film Festival has set Logan, Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine, in a world premiere berth next month. The 20th Century Fox film is the third and final installment in the character trilogy and is set in 2024, one year after the events of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Directed by James Mangold, it’s slated for a March 3 release domestically. This is one of the splashier titles set for Berlin thus far and is a highly-anticipated gritty R-rated pic for Fox.

Logan is running out of competition in Berlin which also added 12 other titles today. They include Danny Boyle’s T2: Trainspotting, the sequel to the cult favorite that reunites Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner. It is likewise out of competition, as is Bend It Like Beckham helmer Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson, also in a world premiere.

Films that will compete now include the latest from Korea’s Hong Sangsoo, On The Beach Alone At Night; Alex de la Iglesia’s El Bar; and Volker Schlöndorff’s Return To Montauk. The full list of today’s additions is below. The festival runs February 9-19.
