LOGAN is Coming Back to Theaters in a Black and White Version

Earlier this year, Hugh Jackman‘s final Wolverine movie, Logan, hit theaters with its stunning mix of action and emotions on its way towards becoming one of the biggest hits in the X-Men franchise. Now, like the man himself once said, Logan is heading back to theaters “one more time.”

Logan director James Mangold has revealed that a black and white version of his film will be re-released into theaters for one night only on Tuesday, May 16.

Mangold confirmed that the black and white version of Logan will be included on DVD and Blu-ray, and he added that the entire film was “regraded & timed shot by shot” for this edition.

The following week, additional details were announced regarding the special event, including a special dress code to be upheld by certain Alamo theaters:

“Guests at LOGAN NOIR are urged to attend wearing only black and white clothing (at the Brooklyn screening this is required and will be strictly enforced). As a parting gift commemorating Old Man Logan’s final ride, audience members in proper black and white attire will receive an exclusive commemorative event poster.”

Accompanying each screening of the film will be a live stream Q&A session with director James Mangold.

Admittedly, some fans may not see the appeal of Logan going in this direction. It is largely an aesthetic choice, but the black and white visuals can also amplify the mood of the film. This is a pretty bleak tale about the last days and the trials of Logan and Professor Xavier. It’s not the future that mutants would have wanted for themselves, but the movie does offer a few glimpses of hope. And really, we would be up for seeing it again on the big screen just to watch X-23 in action. She deserves her own movie after this!
