'Logan Noir' Trailer Shows Black-and-White Cut of Wolverine's Last Film
James Mangold/20th Century Fox
By now, you've probably heard at least someone say Logan was amazing (and that person may have been you). It was a gritty, atmospheric bloodbath that felt more like a western than a superhero movie, and it was a fantastic swan song for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Patrick Stewart's Charles Xavier.

That gritty atmosphere also inspired director James Mangold to prepare a black-and-white version of Logan a few months back, to better capture that sense of desolation nobody expected from an X-Men movie. Lovingly titled Logan Noir, it's a no-frills cut of the film designed from the ground up (Mangold has wanted to do this for awhile) to look amazing without color.

To see for yourself, here's a Logan Noir trailer released by Mangold - one that works much better with Johnny Cash's "Hurt" than we were prepared for. So brace yourself:



As to where you could find the full noir version, there's a couple ways to go about it: this version of the film returned to theaters for one night only at a bunch of Alamo Drafthouses around the country, but that's more or less over by this point. However, it's also included in the Logan Blu-ray and 4K that comes out next week, so if you were planning to pick that up anyway, you're in luck because you'll be getting Logan Noir too. 

The digital HD version of Logan is also just coming out, but that seems to be full-color only. So if you have no way to play Blu-rays or 4K movies, or any discs at all as more people drop their disc drives, then you might have to go pester a friend who still has theirs. But considering this is just a special edition of the same Logan you likely saw in theaters - no extra material, just the removal of color - it's not too surprising that Logan Noir will be limited in its release. 

Logan comes out on Blu-ray, 4K and DVD on May 23, 2017.
