From what I have read the DI used for the BD of Lucy was indeed 2K.

Those words are only mentioned at catalog movies, re-re-release or never before released movies. Only Sony is a king mentioning those 4K words on recent movies. Not in press releases, but on the back cover. 90% buyers don't care.

Fury, Annie, Amazing Spider-Man 2 for example. Universal Pictures next and confirmed 4K movie is "Unbroken" Did you spot any 4K Master words in the press release? Nope there is not.

Universal always have been scares with tech info.

Yes, but we have confirmation with Unbroken:

Everything for Lucy indicates 2K.

They may've given the VFX companies raw 4K files, but the finish was completed at significantly lower resolution.
Be brave.

I have been digging more into this. Here in the Netherlands, Belgium and France the rights are at Belgafilms/Pathé for some reason.. And not Universal Pictures. I did found out that Blu-ray does not contain the IMAX shifting (like rest of the world) and is based on a 2K Master.

Quote:
The film will be released on August 6 on our screens and will be available in its Atmos , Auro , IMAX , 2K Image and 4K . In the US, the film will be screened in 4D technology via D Box , 4DX and X4D .
The 4K screening could have been a France exclusive. Also the fact the scanning company is based in Paris. (easier to distribute)

Again, that does not mean that the movie was mastered in 4K -- only the projection technology.

Also, the movie was not shown with variable aspect ratios anywhere in the world.
Be brave.

House of Cards: Season 3

Quote:
The master copies of House of Cards that Netflix received were reportedly only in 4K, but Netflix is having the production house store 6K masters as an archive, leaving the door open for the future. The 6K masters reportedly came in at 5.5TB per episode, compared to 2.5TB per 4K master. The Reporter says that production houses typically cite storage as the primary reason why these high-resolution productions are more costly.
