LOGAN Director Confirms Black & White Version Coming to U.S. Theaters
It seems those black and white stills released during the lead up to the premiere of Logan weren’t just movie teasers after all.
Earlier today, Hayley Foutch over at Collider (one of our favorite sites) posted a great story telling us that James Mangold has now confirmed a black and white version will see a limited release in the U.S.
“Before any official stills were released by the studio, Mangold teased the film with a series of black-and-white images from the set, capturing Hugh Jackman‘s withered one-time superhero and Boyd Holbrook‘s villainous Pierce in portraits so stark and gorgeous they almost had us thinking 20th Century Fox was going to throw out the rule book entirely with this one and release the first black-and-white superhero film. Not quite, but sometimes we can have nice things, and Mangold is fulfilling fan wishes in time for the home video release and what sounds like a one-night-only theatrical run.”
Believe it or not, I haven’t been able to catch the movie yet. I was afraid I wouldn’t have the chance to experience it in its full glory in theaters. This news gives me renewed hope. We’ve covered the movie extensively from its announcement to its release so I’m looking forward to finally catching it.
