If you thought there was too much blood in Hugh Jackman's Wolverine bow-out, Logan, then maybe it'll be less shocking if the red's all gone. We'll find out for one night only, May 16, when director James Mangold brings his special black and white version to theaters.

If you're somehow tied up and can't slash your way out to a U.S. theater that evening, worry not: a black and white version will also be included in the home entertainment extras.

Mangold tweeted out the screening news earlier today...

Which prompted lots of dancing and "take my money" GIFs, but one of Mangold's followers questioned how special such a B&W version would truly be, since fans can just flip on their TV and "turn down the color settings to [zero] on any movie ever and achieve the same goals".

To which Mangold helpfully replied: "Won't be on a TV. And the answer is no. To make a great B&W version of a film, the whole thing's gotta be regraded & timed shot by shot."

So it appears Mangold has put in the extra effort to make a "great B&W version" of his already sweeping, cinematic, and Peckinpah-ian superhero movie. For you black and white fans out there who already thought Mangold's Logan was pretty darn great in bleak color, it appears this one's for you. Will you be watching?
