With near-universal praise and a $607 million box-office haul, it's safe to say Logan stuck the landing.
It's also fair to point out that a big reason why the movie worked so well was 11-year-old Dafne Keen. She is flat-out brilliant as Laura/X-23, who is ....
I mean, do we really have to do the Warning: Spoilers thing at this point?
Fine, SPOILER ALERT.
She's playing Wolverine's genetically engineered daughter. And the relationship between Logan and his progeny -- and her bond with Charles Xavier -- forms the backbone of the picture.
We didn't hear much from young Dafne during the publicity run-up to Logan's release. She did very little press, which makes sense not just because the surprise nature of the character for non-comics-reading fans of the X-Men movie franchise but also because she's eleven and doing a ton of interviews for an R-rated movie probably isn't the best use of a young girl's time.
However, this week's home entertainment release of Logan promises to shed new light on Dafne Keen and her star turn. We have an EXCLUSIVE clip from the special features of the DVD/Blu-ray that focuses on Dafne and her performance as Laura/X-23. It's a revealing look at how she brought the role to life, and what really caught our attention was just how impressed her veteran co-stars were with her performance.
Check it out. Then hit the comments and tell us if you're planning to check out Logan, either again or for the first time, when it debuts on DVD/Blu-ray on May 23.
