Director James Mangold tweeted a page from the script last week, giving a sense of the R-rated film from Fox's tone.

"Basically, if you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f--kathon, this ain't your movie," reads a page from the script, which Mangold shared this week. "In this flick, people get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy, like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won't bounce. They will die."

Logan is set for March 3, 2017.
