Watch the full Logan Noir Q&A with star Hugh Jackman, director James Mangold and produced Hutch Parker
Earlier this week, Alamo Drafthouse and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment were host to a nationwide screening of Logan Noir, a special black and white version of director James Mangold’s recent superhero hit. The even was followed by a special Q&A session with star Hugh Jackman, producer Hutch Parker and Mangold himself. Now, the full video has been made available and you can check it out in the player below!
“During production of ‘Logan’ I took many black and white photographs and noticed how striking and dramatic our gritty settings and characters appeared in monochrome,” said Mangold when Logan Noir was first announced. “The western and noir vibes of the film seemed to shine in the format and there was not a trace of modern comic hero movie sheen. Then, while editing, Fox and I started posting some of the black and white stills online and fans also began to respond enthusiastically, many hoping that they would get a chance to see the finished film in carefully timed, high contrast black and white. Well. Sometimes hope becomes reality.”
If you didn’t get the chance to catch Logan Noir on the big screen, fear not. The alternate version of the film will be included on next week’s Blu-ray and DVD release. Check out the full list of Logan special features just below the Logan Noir Q&A video.
