The projectionist would simply zoom the image (to get rid of the slight black bars on top and bottom) when showing the movie on a 2.40:1 screen.
I'm just saying it in general. That there are two ways to prepare the DCP. But in most cases, the flat option is more ideal.

Also, it appears that Jurassic World is only in 5.1 and 7.1
No Auro 11.1, no Dolby Atmos. Not sure if the IMAX with Laser 12.0 is even mixed. :/

Zooming in an image means cropping the frame composition, especially when the theater is in scope.

Both the hardware (the lenses on the projector) and the software allow for varying degrees of zooming. If theaters are showing Jurassic World on 2.40:1 screens, they will zoom in so that there will be vertical bars on the left and right but no horizontal bars on the top and bottom.

I'll tell you this. When I went to see Furious 7, a 2.40:1 movie, on a 2.40:1 screen, the projectionist had set up the movie to be windowboxed. There were black bars on all four sides. He had zoomed out.

Amazon is frequently wrong about product specs.

Please remove: Terminator Genisys (DCP is 2K)

http://digitalcinema.bydeluxe.com/si...S_Letter_1.pdf

And I see bad signs for: Mission Impossible 5 too. Hopefully the final DCP is still 4K...

This is why I hate 3D. It stands 4K in it's way

Only The Smurfs 2 3D, Titantic 3D & Jurassic Park 3D are 3D movies with a 4K Master, as far I can remember.

Pieter, when it comes to 3D the DCP being 2K isn't the final word on what res the movie was finished at. Several of Sony's 3D live action movies are proof of that, e.g. Green Hornet, Men in Black 3, Amazing Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man 2, all of which got a 4K 2D finish as well as a 2K 3D DCP. And when Paramount did a new 6K transfer for Top Gun 3D they worked on the 3D version at 2K.

We'll have to wait for the UHD versions to appear before passing judgement on most of this summer's movies re: 4K finishes.

Just because it has been talked about here over the last few weeks: According to latest issue of American Cinematographer, "Jurassic World" was shot entirely on film (Super 35mm and 65mm). According to the article, they wanted to shoot the movie in 2.40:1, but Producer Steven Spielberg was against that, because he thought the image needed more hight for the dinosaurs, so they compromised at 2.0:1. The movie got a "2K-plus" finish (2398x1556).
