Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings Hugh Jackman’s celebrated seventeen-year run as Wolverine to a close when the box office phenomenon “Logan” arrives on Digital HD May 16th and 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, and DVD May 23rd. Sir Patrick Stewart (“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”), Stephen Merchant (“Hello Ladies,” “The Office”), Boyd Holbrook (“Narcos”) and newcomer Dafne Keen join Jackman in the iconic character’s final chapter, directed by James Mangold (“The Wolverine,” “Walk the Line”).
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.”
