I’ll be interested to see if 3D is still a thing by that point in time.

That’s what I thought until I saw Jurassic Park 3D: unwatchable.

At least the 3D version of Jurassic Park was from a newer scan than what the blu-ray used.

The OT, on the other hand, still hasn’t even been projected theatrically at modern 4k quality. To the best of my knowledge, that dcp of Empire that’s been shown here and there since last summer is still based off the 2011 master.

Damn, I never thought about that.


Even with the 4k master finally available at home in late 2019 / early 2020 (after apparently being in the works for years), Disney still puts out the 2011 revision of the 2004 HD master of Empire for actual movie theaters to show.

That right there makes me think that they don’t want the newer masters being shown theatrically at all until they’ve been prepared for a rollout in grand fashion. That means remastering them for dolby cinema, Imax, and 3D.
