To say Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ was well-received by fans and critics alike is somewhat of an understatement, especially now that the film has earned well over $600 million at the box office with a budget of around $97 million, making it one of the more financially successful films of the year to date. The send off for Jackman as Wolverine hit all of the high notes that fans were looking for, being full of nostalgia, heart, action, and well-deserved drama. The reason a lot of us went to see ‘Logan’ in the first place was the marketing campaigning that worked so hard to establish the fact that the the film contained all of these elements. And throughout that campaign, especially in the print version, director James Mangold repeatedly used black and white images from the movie that really resonated with the overall tone that they were trying to establish with the film, which left many fans wondering and later clamoring for a black and white version of the actual film to be released. Eventually, it was announced that the Blu-Ray would include a black and white version, but for those who cannot wait for the movie to come home, there is good news.
In a recent press release, it was announced that 20th Century Fox would be doing a one-day screening of ‘Logan’ in black and white, titled ‘Logan Noir’ on Tuesday May 16th, which will take place at Alamo Drafthouse locations across the country. Following the screenings, there will even be a live-streamed Q&A session with director James Mangold himself, with questions coming in from Twitter from fans using the hashtag #AskAlamo. And as if that were not enough, any fan who shows up to the event dressed in black and white attire will receive an exclusive, commemorative poster. (to secure your own tickets, click here.)
It is fun seeing 20th Century Fox go out of its way to make a special event for the fans and to further celebrate Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, especially after the man worked so hard to make this movie a proper send-off for his version of the character.
