SPECIAL EDITION “LOGAN” POSTERS PAYING HOMAGE TO THE LEGENDARY

when they purchase pre-sale tickets on Feb. 17
LOS ANGELES, February 17, 2017 – 20th Century Fox is partnering with Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind theatrical mobile ticketing platform, to reach consumers and drive ticket sales for the highly-anticipated film Logan—the tenth installment in the epic X-Men movie series. When fans purchase advance tickets through the Atom Tickets app, they will receive a free limited-edition mini print of a Logan Collectible Artist poster as part of the “Logan’s Journey” campaign, while supplies last.
The Logan Collectible Artist posters were created by 6 award-winning comic book artists: Art Adams, Nate Powell, Babs Tarr, Becky Cloonon, Jeff Lemire and Bill Sienkiewicz. As true fans of the X-Men series, the artists have designed custom, special-edition homage posters celebrating Hugh Jackman’s final portrayal of the iconic Wolverine character.
“At 20th Century Fox we are always looking for unique ways to showcase our films and extend our reach to consumers using innovative technologies. ATOM achieves both perfectly,” said Chris Aronson, President, 20th Century Fox Domestic Distribution. “Matthew and his team have created a revolutionary, stand-alone app that will enhance the movie going experience and we’re ecstatic to be partnering with them.”
“We are thrilled to be a part of the “Logan’s Journey” campaign and help pay tribute to Wolverine by offering our users these special-edition collectible posters,” said Matthew Bakal, executive chairman and co-founder, Atom Tickets. “As movie fans, we’re excited to celebrate this Wolverine film and give fans of the franchise something they can’t get anywhere else.”
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. LOGAN stars Hugh Jackman (“X-Men” Franchise, “Wolverine” Franchise, “Chappie,” “Les Misérables”) and Patrick Stewart (“X-Men” Franchise, “Star Trek” Franchise, “American Dad”) and is directed by James Mangold who helmed 2013’s THE WOLVERINE.
Atom Tickets is a game-changing mobile app and website that is revolutionizing the movie ticketing industry to make movie experiences faster, easier and more social than ever. Atom lets users pre-order movie tickets and concessions and provides a VIP experience that includes bypassing lines at theaters. The user-friendly platform also lets moviegoers watch trailers, read reviews and coordinate movie outings with friends while allowing each person to pay separately with just a few simple taps.
How Atom Tickets Works
Atom Tickets re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies. The free app and website provide relevant reviews, trailers and synopses to help customers make the best decision on what to see. Moviegoers may then invite friends (via Facebook or their contact lists) to purchase their own tickets to join them. Atom offers streamlined ordering of tickets and concessions from any Android or iOS phone. At the theater, users go directly to the ushers and concession counters, where they simply scan a QR code at tablet kiosks. Paper tickets and IOUs have been replaced by Atom’s innovative platform, which keeps all plans, messaging, payment and tickets in one place.
