‘Logan’ was an excellent success story in theaters, proving that R-rated superhero films can indeed be a trend and not just a one-hit wonder for 2016’s ‘Deadpool.’ Now, the film is about to get its home-video release, but before that, it’s coming back to theaters for one more day, with a sweet-looking black-and-white version.
Not just a simple transfer from color to monochrome, ‘Logan: Noir’ has had heavy work done in the movie’s contrast, texturing, and exposure levels, so that a surprising amount of depth is garnered from the black-and-white version. Director James Mangold has tweeted out a look at the trailer for this version of the film; check it out below, and read all about the movie’s impending home-video release as well!
