Here I thought BD was moving in the right direction with IMAX material, this seems to me like a step backward.
I saw the film in two different theatres - the first was a true IMAX presentation (15/70 film on a 6 storey high screen) and the second was a traditional digital presentation in the scope aspect ratio, and it actually bugged me quite a bit (the second time), not that it didn't look great, but something was just missing the second time I saw it.

But anyways, did Bird actually say that it will be 2.4:1 all the way on the Blu-ray, he just said it wouldn't replicate the IMAX experience, which make sense as no one has a home theatre with a screen as big as an IMAX screen. So, I'm hoping.

You don't need an IMAX screen to enjoy scenes shot in IMAX.
See: The Dark Knight, among others.
Obviously an IMAX set up would make a big difference over my 58" Panny plasma, but that's not to say that were these scenes included they wouldn't make a difference...because they most certainly would. Which is why so many are a little put off by this decision.
With that said, I believe Bird did mention something to that effect on his twitter page. I believe someone posted that actual message on this thread a few pages back.

I think, this scrutiny ... IMAX 3-Disc combo pack is included.

Paramount has officially announced when the dates do not know

[Best Buy Edition] big hunch to come.
Might be a steelbook...

No it doesn't make sense. You don't need an IMAX screen in your home to enjoy the scenes. It has the same effect. When you watch a movie that has IMAX scenes, like TF2, in 2.35; then the image opens up, it really gives it a big open feel. The forest fight is a perfect example. Plus you get the added resolution from being filmed that way.

And just so you know, if you really want to get technical, nobody's theater at home replicates the movie theater experience, IMAX or regular, as far as size since no one has screens as big as a theater. Not even projector owners. If what brad bird says is true, then we shouldn't haveany films for home release since they don't "approximate the movie theater experience."

Totally agree, having it open up makes the film seem bigger, no matter the size of your screen at home. Especially when you see how it slowly moved from 2.39:1 to 1.44:1 at the tower scene (instead of an abrupt change as TDK or TF2 does).
What I think it sounds like is that Bird wants people to see it in an IMAX theatre with 200 other people and a giant 6 storey screen as opposed to watching it with 2 or 3 other people on a 40 inch screen. I personally think a big movie like this looks great on a theatre screen and looks just as good at home, no matter what your setup is like. I just haven't read anything from him (or even Paramount) that said 2.39:1 only or 2.39:1/1.78:1 shifting. (Is it just me or does Paramount seem to like keeping their AR info a secret, when every other studio lists it wherever they can. What's the deal?)

Question

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/Mis...=ATVPDKIKX0DER



'3-Disc' Outing Pre-Order!

Is unexpected. What Rr version?

And why it's '3-disc' version?

I do not know what's going on.....

Of publicly available information so far

This may seem obvious,

Rivals have seen the situation is a little bit.

I'm almost positive the reason we don't have an IMAX version is that they do not want a second version for people to argue about.

Well it seems BB thinks IMAX scenes at home is useless. Here is his replies to my tweet-
Quote:
@BradBirdA113 Other movies like The Dark Night and Transformers 2 had IMAX scenes. It works just as good in the home. Make it happen.

Brad bird- I don't think so. But that's me.

Brad bird- the aspect ratio change viewed the way most people at home do (NOT filling their field of view) is not remotely like an IMAX theater
Wow. Completely disagree.

Okay Brad, how about you just make it available and let the people who have spent thousands on their HT setups be the decision makers.
Sorry, but I don't like is reasoning(or lack thereof) one bit.
