Now, #Fox's #Logan may currently be on course to make an extremely large amount of money at the #boxoffice (it's currently up to $160 million domestically, with an additional $297 million internationally, off of a reported $97 million production budget), but that doesn't mean that it wouldn't quite like to make some more money this weekend, thank you very much.
The only problem with that, of course, is that #Disney's #BeautyAndTheBeast just so happens to hit theaters this weekend, and currently looks set to decimate all comers en route to an absolutely enormous box office total. This obviously doesn't bode all that well for Logan's third weekend in theaters, seeing as it has already been knocked off the top spot by #KongSkullIsland.
'Logan's New TV Spot Would Like You To Skip 'Beauty And The Beast,' Please
Specifically, the initially cutely sound-tracked spot suggests that "while some want to see the beauty," "you should see the beast" — before promptly showing a whole bunch of footage of Jackman stabbing people, in that very particular way that he does so well.
Which, while likely a fairly futile gesture in the face of Disney's seemingly unstoppable box office machine, is still a pretty neat gag to throw into a TV spot.
What do you think, though? Will you be seeing Logan (again) this weekend, or is the lure of Beauty and the Beast too strong? Let us know below!
