You might recall that a number of the promotional images for Logan were done in black and white and often had very stark shadows and so on; a lot of them images were shot by director James Mangold personally.
Director James Mangold has revealed that he has been working on a special black and white version of the movie - Hugh Jackman's final outing as Marvel mutant Wolverine - and it will be released on May 16. It was only a few months ago - 20th Century Fox kicked off the marketing campaign for Logan with a series of black and white stills.
"Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving Logan fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th". The original R-rated theatrical version and the black-and-white version will both be included. Sounds like it'll be the same one shown on the big screen this May. It is largely an aesthetic choice, but the black and white visuals can also amplify the mood of the film.

Obama has not addressed the controversy that was created and is thriving inside of the Washington bubble. Barack Obama is technically unemployed but securing lucrative bags thanks to his speaking engagements.
He also assured one other fan that a great black and white version will need to be regraded and timed shot by shot to get a good effect. It seems likely that Mangold's noir cut of Logan will be quite satisfying and could bring a new perspective to an already surprisingly poignant film.
As for details about where this black and white version will actually be playing, that's yet to be revealed. The screening, sadly, will only be available in the U.S.
A home video release hasn't been formally announced, but it's rumored to arrive on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, & DVD on May 23.
