LOOKBOOK 122 - LOGAN'S RUN | THRILLATHON AT RESORTS WORLD MANILA

No relation to Wolverine and his heart-stopping bullet train chase whatsoever.
HYPE on Lookbook

It's all about the shirt and the root of the title (which I'm sure you're dying to know where the hell came from).

Selling over twenty million copies, this poster of Farrah Fawcett which catapulted her to fame landed her a supporting role in Michael Anderson's science fiction film Logan's Run (1976). Now let me hear you say a now-I-know "ahhh…"

Logan's Run is like the recent In Time. But instead of 25, people should submit themselves and must undergo the ritual of "Carousel" where they are vaporized to be "renewed" and reborn when they reach the age of 30. Little did they know that it's a brutal population control system to maintain the city and the hedonistic lifestyle of its citizens.

The movie was thrilling. Very ahead of its time! But if it's the real thing that you're looking for, better head on to Resorts World Manila and experience the ultimate thrill of a lifetime yourself!
