Logan Blu Ray Date and Details: B&W Edition Included!!!

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray James Mangold’s blockbuster Logan (2017), starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, and Stephen Merchant. The two releases will be available for purchase on May 23.

Touting an R-rating, allowing fans to finally see Logan’s legendary berserk rage unleashed, Mangold brings a visceral and gritty realism to the story, based on one of Marvel Comics’ most popular characters. In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant (Dafne Keen) arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

In addition to nearly 90 minutes of original content, including deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes documentary, the Blu-ray will also include Logan Noir, a black and white version of the film that gives the acclaimed story an all-new look.

“During production of LOGAN I took many black and white photographs and noticed how striking and dramatic our gritty settings and characters appeared in monochrome,” said Mangold. “The western and noir vibes of the film seemed to shine in the format and there was not a trace of modern comic hero movie sheen. Then, while editing, Fox and I started posting some of the black and white stills online and fans also began to respond enthusiastically, many hoping that they would get a chance to see the finished film in carefully timed, high contrast black and white. Well. Sometimes hope becomes reality.”

  1. I wish I had not missed this. I might dive right into Logan Noir when I have the blu-ray in my hands. Now that Jackman is through, ah how I wish they would reboot X-Men as a Netflix series. Most of the films have been really good, but X-Men could be so much more. And now, with streaming services and a precedent for lots of quality TV, you can do justice to material that demands justice. I am increasingly wising that the creators of Gotham had dumped the gimmick, and simply allowed themselves to tell the story of Batman, which would have allowed for Jim’s story, and all the other characters and villains. You can’t do justice to universes as rich as Batman or X-Men with a movie every two years.

    1. When you do, I absolutely thing you personally would like Noir more. I always loved the idea of this in black and white because it does take a little of the gore factor away, but it is a bleak film with desert landscapes and grizzled old men. It’s a little like Unforgiven in a way. I also wince every time something happens to Dafne Keen, because I’m in my 30’s and I get she’s a kid who can heal like Wolverine, but I’ve never seen violence visited on a child like happens in this film. The b&w will definitely help that. It is a brilliant film and you can tell James Mangold felt like he got so close with The Wolverine and Fox screwed him and he just did everything you wouldn’t normally do and it works. It really does.
