Black and White version of "Logan" coming to US theatres

Logan director James Mangold has revealed that a black and white version of his film will be re-released into theaters for one night only on Tuesday, May 16.

Are you looking for a reason to justify paying to see Logan again in theaters?

Back in March, Mangold was more tight-lipped, simply tweeting, "Workin' on it" in response to a number of online pleas for some monochrome Marvel Universe. Mangold stated that fans "should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th", which is basically a nod to when it will become available on big screens.

He wrote, "Yes, but it will be on big screens on the 16th". The original R-rated theatrical version and the black-and-white version will both be included.

New scrutiny of timeline after Arkansas executes 4th inmate
An Associated Press reporter who witnessed the execution said Williams lurched and convulsed 20 times during the lethal injection. It's not clear how many doses of the other two drugs Arkansas uses to execute prisoners remain in the state's stash.

Asked if b&w fans can just adjust the color settings "on any movie ever and achieve the same goals right now?" To which he replied, "The answer is no". The black and white screenings will tie in to the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of the film.

The move comes after weeks of speculation and follows in the footsteps of a Black and Chrome edition of Mad Max: Fury Road. It was, in a way, seeing the new film for the first time.

"It caused such an extreme reaction, and so much appreciation for these pictures, and then people immediately [were] wondering if the film itself was going to be in black and white, and so we are giving it a whirl", Mangold said.

If you're somehow tied up and can't slash your way out to a USA theater that evening, worry not: a black and white version will also be included in the home entertainment extras.
