Yeh really struggling to see why you'd make a made for TV film in 4:3 in this day and age. Trying to badge it as anything else seems wrong.

Does Christopher Nolan film his IMAX scenes in 1.43:1 and then crops them to 16:9 for home cinema release with switching ratios, i.e. 2.4:1 to 16:9 (Interstellar)? Rather than 2.4:1 to 1.43:1, i.e. black bars top and bottom to black bars either side?

I think that works for home cinema release and hopefully ZS:JL will be the same but without the switching ratios, i.e. just 16:9 throughout or close (1.66:1).

It's nearly always (excluding Joker close-up at the end) framed with vertical space in the frame to go from 70mm 1:43 down to 2.35. This makes total sense if your entire field of vision is 'filled' by an actual IMAX screen. Especially with the curved IMAX.

If Synder is framing tight on IMAX 1.43 and therefore can't crop to at least 1.6->1.78 .... he's doing it wrong.


Looks to me like he's stuffed it up... framing IMAX too close like it's the Academy ratio.

TBF that's not a fair comparison, you can take close shots from any opened up frame (say Super35) and compare it to the finished 2.39:1 scope framing and say "oh they framed too tight to crop" but the reality is that it all depends on the focus of that scene. Scope by its very nature limits close ups, it's a wide format. That shot of The Flash may look absolutely fine focusing solely on his face in 2.35:1, you may not have to see his upper body at all, and that lightning spark looks like little more than window dressing.

I'm sure we've all seen Justice League in its 16:9 theatrical ratio by now, did it look too tight at any point? Not that I recall!

Wasn't 90 percent of it reshot by Whedon though (presumably with 16:9 in mind)?

About three quarters was suppposedly reshot by Whedon, hence why i said "at any point". If Snyder had framed for 1.43:1 without it being safe for a wider crop then about a qyuarter of the film would stick out like a sore thumb.

Snyder's confirmed it's four hours long, 4:3 ratio, & it ends on a 'massive cliffhanger' for a follow up that may never happen.

Warners really should have paid him rather than give him complete control.

In other delusions of grandeur news, he's has started calling his DC movies 'The Snyderverse' and said all the other DC movies are a separate thing.

I'm out. 4 hours FFS. No wonder they got someone else in to finish his movie.

It never would've been released theatrically in anything like that length, but it makes you wonder if the film was basically unworkable with so much cut out that they just ended up rewriting most of it?

I take it this is still be presented as a 4-part series? I’ve sat through a lot more than 4hrs in one go for some TV series, so 4hrs of this isn’t a problem. You can even break it down over a few days.

It's been confirmed as a four hour movie.

Edit: I just remembered that Zak has also said it sets up story seeds for future films (as per his original vision) and it will end on a massive cliffhanger. But obviously, the future films will never happen.

It's a 4-hour movie, but apparently it will have 'chapters'. According to Snyder, the first two are:

Part One: 'Don't Count On It Batman'
Part Two: 'The Age of Heroes'

I'm guessing these are a holdover from when it was going to be a miniseries or whatever they originally had planned.

Let's face it, it's probably going to be crap regardless of how it's split!

If that's the original ratio what's the issue. Some of my favourite movies are 4:3 and 4 hours (AND Black & White!)

Always bothered me that they cropped the IMAX sequences on the home release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

I saw that twice in IMAX and the scale was awesome, I even took some sneaky pictures during the second showing and still couldn't fit the whole image in.

Yeah, apparently they are all the rage in the 21st century

Warner Bros must be wondering what the **** they've done.

There is a new home release version being released that has some colour correction and full IMAX ratios - I’m assuming the ratios will switch like Nolan’s home releases.

Aye saw it was also coming to NowTV. I guess its hard to judge really, not a lot new out there, I guess it'll do pretty well as something new to watch.
