During filming for Logan, last year director James Mangold started to release photos from the film in black and white.

While we got the native colored version; James Mangold went back and has actually been working on a Black & White cut of the film. The version of the film will be re-released in theaters May 16th for a limited run before debuting on DVD & Blu-Ray May 23rd. Unfortunately, the limited run will only be available in select theaters in the US only.
