The third in the Marvel Comics franchise sees the long-time stand-off betwe en Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) boil into a full-scale war over a new “cure” for mutant beings. Bryan Singer, who was behind the first two films, signed off from the series, making way for an impressive Brett Ratner (Red Dragon). The irrepressible Hugh Jackman (pictured) once again owns the screen as Wolverine, and Famke Janssen returns as Jean Grey, who had supposedly di ed in X2. The stellar ensemble cast also includes Halle Berry, James Marsden, Rebecca Romijn and Anna Paquin. More action than ever and a breakneck pace bring the trilogy to a thrilling close.
