Logan black and white screenings to take place on May 16
When Logan promotions began, black and white images were released by director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, leaving some fans wondering if the movie was actually in black and white. That didn’t turn out to be the case, of course, but now Mangold has revealed on Twitter that fans will be able to see Logan black and white screenings on Tuesday, May 16!
“Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving LOGAN fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th,” he said. Asked whether fans can just set their TV sets to not display colors, Mangold responded: “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.” He did say that these screenings will only take place in the U.S. Presumably the Logan black and white screenings are a tie-in with the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD release.
20th Century Fox‘s Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen. Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan (Jackman) as he cares for an ailing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan has earned more than $605 million at the worldwide box office. It was made for $97 million, not counting marketing expenses.
