I'm being optimistic here. But this is how I see it. The ultimate version for me would be to include HFR 3D and Dolby Atmos. Very few cinemas in the world offer this combination.
It's the same feeling I had with the Transformers: Age of Extinction 3D BD. Having digital IMAX aspect ratio (1.89) video and Dolby Atmos for audio is something not possible in cinemas.
There will be no HFR version on home version for the time being. Early indications seem to say that 48 fps was not included in the Ultra HD Blu-ray specs. 60 fps was, but no 3D support. However, this will not help a 48 fps movie.
