Re: Question about Dark Knight and IMAX
As someone who's very excited to see TDK, I'm considering making it the first "real" movie I will see in an IMAX theater. I've seen documentaries and the like in IMAX, but never a Hollywood movie.
My question is this: How do they handle the aspect ratio? Is it going to be where the scenes in TDK shot specificaly for IMAX will fill the screen, and then for the rest there will be black bars on the top and bottom to make it 2.35 to 1 or whatever aspect ratio it has?
A movie doesn't have to be shot in IMAX (I believe TDK is the first to have done so) to be shown in IMAX. All the shots will fill the screen, just the ones shot in IMAX will have a great deal more detail and resolution.
