Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Hugh Jackman's Wolverine swan song Logan has officially been rated "R."

The film's rating was confirmed Monday by director James Mangold who wrote on Twitter, "Official: Please be advised that Logan has been rated R for 'strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.'"

The rating comes on the heels of Fox's other X-Men property Deadpool releasing in 2016 with an "R" rating on its way to earning rave reviews and $760 million at the worldwide box office.

While speaking with Uproxx in December, Mangold revealed that Jackman took a pay cut in order for the film to receive the higher rating.

The latest trailer for the film released Thursday depicts a more gritty, bloody and violent tale as Jackman's aged Wolverine is seen fightting to protect a mysterious mutant girl with powers similar to his own.

Also starring Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Logan is set to arrive in theaters March 3.
