“Logan” is the first X-men movie to be rated R, and only two of the X-Men are actually in it . . . Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. It’s set in a near future where mutants are all but extinct, and Logan is hiding out near the Mexican border with Professor X. When a girl shows up with powers that are strikingly similar to his, Wolverine becomes her reluctant guardian, protecting her from mutant hunters led by “Narcos” star Boyd Holbrook. The mini-Wolverine is played by a kid named Dafne Keen.

BEFORE I FALL
Zoey Deutch plays a young woman who relives the day of her death over and over again until she gets the day right by breaking free of the mean girl clique and ending the cycle of bullying she’d participated in. It’s very Groundhog Day-ish (without the comedy). Jennifer Beals plays her mom. You know Zoey from “Dirty Grandpa” and “Vampire Academy”. She’s also the daughter of “Back to the Future” star Lea Thompson.
