In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Professor Xavier's Psionic blast initially was conceived as a huge pulse of energy, much more akin to the kind of superhero powers seen in other movies. But Director James Mangold was against that treatment, he wanted to keep everything much more naturalistic. So Visual Effects Supervisor Chas Jarrett evolved the idea from the initial pulse wave idea, into a mind control field that caused people to become immobile. Unable to move and breathe or function properly, the psionic blast would eventually kill those around him. This is a malign version of Xavier's frequently used ability to freeze large groups of people, as seen in the original X-Men trilogy.
(at around 1h 1 min) During Xavier's seizure in the hotel, everyone is frozen in place by the assault. As Logan passes by the slot machines, one lady is looking around unaffected by the paralysis.
Toward the very end of the roll, a credit misspells the star's home country name as "Austrialian".
The version of the film shown in theaters had a Deadpool short that played before the main film. This is not included on the home video release.
