Do two movies make a trend? Well, if so, black-and-white versions of blockbuster movies is now a thing. After George Miller brought “Mad Max: Fury Road” back to cinemas and home video in a black and chrome cut, James Mangold is doing the same with “Logan” in a version known as “Logan Noir.”
The director has dropped a trailer for the monochrome version, which gives you all the action and Johnny Cash‘s cover of Nine Inch Nails‘ “Hurt” which you’ve seen before, but given more moody gravitas in black-and-white. Visually, it looks pretty good, certainly provides a different experience, and should be good fun for fans. Moreover, the aesthetic seems like a nice fit for the serious-in-tone finale to Hugh Jackman‘s turn with the claws.
“Logan Noir” plays on the big screen in limited release tomorrow, and will be available on Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD on May 23rd.
