The Berlin Film Festival has set Logan, Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine, in a world premiere berth next month. Directed by James Mangold, the 20th Century Fox film is slated for a March 3 release domestically. This is one of the splashier titles set for Berlin thus far and is a highly-anticipated gritty R-rated pic for Fox.

Logan is running out of competition in Berlin which also added 12 other titles today. They include Danny Boyle’s T2: Trainspotting, the sequel to the cult favorite that reunites Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner. It is likewise out of competition, as is Bend It Like Beckham helmer Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson, also in a world premiere.

Films that will compete now include the latest from Korea’s Hong Sangsoo, On The Beach Alone At Night; Alex de la Iglesia’s El Bar; and Volker Schlöndorff’s Return To Montauk. The full list of today’s additions is below. The festival runs February 9-19.
