The Official Black-and-White ‘Logan Noir’ Trailer Looks Utterly Gorgeous
And hoo boy, does it look pretty.

“De-colorized” is perhaps an insufficient descriptor here, as the filmmakers clearly did much more than simply remove the color. They paid a ton of attention to adjusting the contrasts, making the sun-drenched outdoor scenes all the more jarringly effective, for example.
The black-and-white feel also creates some plain beautiful imagery. The shot of Laura (Dafne Keen) looking out the rain-specked car window stands out:
Logan (Hugh Jackman) digging a grave in the forest is also stunning:
Logan was a bravura finale for the Wolverine (assuming of course that Ryan Reynolds can’t convince Jackman to sign up for an upcoming Deadpool appearance). The Noir edition seems like a beautiful way to view Wolverine’s adios to cinemas.
If you can’t get to a theater to see Logan Noir (details here), don’t worry. You can watch it on Blu-ray May 23, as it’ll be paired with the standard edition that comes out that day.
