Watching Hugh Jackman Dub This Fight Scene in 'Logan' is Hilarious

One major issue that directors and sound editors run into during filming is getting good audio in high-energy action scenes where characters are moving around a lot—sometimes a boom mic just can't cut it. The solution is to redub most, if not all, of the dialogue during the editing process—and by "dialogue", we also mean grunts, growls, and berserker rage cries.

Offering a new peek behind the curtain, Hugh Jackman has posted a fantastic video on Twitter which shows him getting fully into character as he records his heavy breathing and shouting from a particularly heated battle in Logan:


It's amazing to see, up close, just how imposing Jackman's presence can be when he's in the middle of a performance as Wolverine. He really gives it his all as he rages in the small recording room, running, thrusting his arms, bellowing, and giving his performance the weight and gravitas you see on screen. All while trying desperately to keep his headphones on his ears.


What's equally impressive is how quickly he lays aside the character, going from an almighty war cry to an embarrassed smile in the space of a second when he realizes someone is filming him.
