Logan director James Mangold tweeted Friday that a black & white version of the critical-darling final performance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine will be released in U.S. (only) theaters May 16, and will later be available on home entertainment release.
"Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving LOGAN fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th," Mangold tweeted.
Asked if b&w fans can just adjust the color settings "on any movie ever and achieve the same goals right now?" Mangold replied, "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."
Logan has tallied $605m at the global box office since its release in March, making it the most critically and commercially successful of the Wolverine films.
