Logan to be re-released in cinemas in black and white version


Story by Jack Foley

A BLACK and white version of superhero flick Logan is to be released in cinemas in May.

Director James Mangold made the revelation via Twitter, when he wrote: “Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving LOGAN fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th.

“Won’t be on a TV. And the answer is no. To make a great B&W version of a film, the whole thing’s gotta be regraded & timed shot by shot.”

The move comes after weeks of speculation surrounding the possibility of a black and white edit of the film, particularly as a lot of the promotional photography featured black and white shots.

It also comes hot on the footsteps of a Black and Chrome edition of Mad Max: Fury Road.

The only piece of bad news is that, so far, the black and white version will only be shown in US cinemas – and only for one day.

Although Mangold did go on to reveal that a black and white version will be available on the home entertainment release, which will hopefully be inclusive of editions outside of the US.

Logan, released in March, has earned more than $604 million at the global box office and is the best-reviewed X-Men movie in the Fox franchise’s history. It also marks leading man Jackman’s final time playing the role of Wolverine.
