If you want to be the first to see the black and white edition of Logan, then you may want to mark this date for a stay-in movie viewing experience.
Director James Mangold has teased (technically announced) over Twitter the date when Logan’s other edition will become available. Mangold stated that fans “should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th,” which is basically a nod to when it will become available on big screens.
Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving LOGAN fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th.— Mangold (@mang0ld) April 28, 2017
In the same thread, Mangold did answer a few of the fans’ burning questions.
For starters, Mangold assured fans that the movie will also come out on DVD and Blu-ray, though it will arrive in U.S. movie theaters first. The screening, sadly, will only be available in the U.S.
He also assured one other fan that a great black and white version will need to be regraded and timed shot by shot to get a good effect.
Ever since Logan shot up the viewers’ and critics’ list as one of the best movies to end Hugh Jackman’s reign as Wolverine, the black and white edition has been something fans have echoed to get.
This may be partly thanks to the movie’s very Western appeal, with an aged and gruff Logan at the center, and a sidekick of sorts in the form of X-23 a.k.a. Laura Kinney.
Logan stars Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, and Stephen Merchant.
