That’s not in full rez. Dm me.

Open the Streamable link, it’s in HD there. Reddit’s video player screws it up for some reason. And I didn’t post it, someone else did.

I think What Abrams could have done is include the full uncropped 1.44:1 sequence as a bonus feature in the Extras section of the Blu Ray (in addition to the shifting ratio on the 3D BD). In that way we could see both the standard 2.39:1 version of the film as well as the original IMAX framed sequence as it was shot. 2.39:1 to 1.78:1 is not bad but we are still missing a lot of image vertically from the original IMAX framing.

From the IMAX stills I have seen, the 1.44:1 framing is beautiful and has that sense of vertigo and immersion, but a 1.78:1 crop will lose all that feeling.

yeah complete agree
it’s so frustrating to not at least get them as an extra!
and a branching option would be nice, you could chose to see it all 2.40:1, switching to 1.78:1 or switching to 1.44:1

that scene was astonishing seeing it on a giant IMAX laser screen!

PS: Did anyone see the Dark Knight in 15/70 IMAX? I didn’t care too much for the film, but the EXPERIENCE was out of this world. The detail was jaw-dropping.

no, but I saw Dark Knight Rises in 15/70 IMAX, it was insane, so sharp, you felt like you were right there on the streets of NYC looking around, incredible

My problem with IMAX scenes is that the AR shift wouldn’t have to happen if they just did the whole thing in IMAX. Either use IMAX or don’t use IMAX.

I like the shift, it was like wow boom you immersed into the MF escape sequence scene.

I like the way Nolan handled the shifting aspect ratios of his films for the blu ray releases. It was the closest he could get to replicating the IMAX theatrical experience on current home theater tech.

HOWEVER, I think ALL of these blu rays should’ve included the full frame IMAX footage as bonus features.

I’ve been incredibly fortunate to see all four of these films at a 15/70 presentation (even got to see TDK twice thanks to a revival screening!) and there is nothing else like it in the world. Interstellar on IMAX was possibly the single greatest theatrical presentation I’ve ever experienced. The escape from Jakku on 15/70 was mind blowing. It was so visceral and nearly overwhelming. You felt like you were right there, in that chase. And you DEFINATELY lose something in the cropped scope version.

agreed

I’ve got it too, but it’s from another forum, and I don’t think I’m allowed to share it with you

I stated and I quote “I don’t think I’m allowed to share it with you.” Because the forum I am in has strict rules and regulations on sharing links to random people, especially you, where in this case just kept a eye on this one thread with no other posts in other topics, sorry to burst your bubble bud. Plus I find it more suspicious that you joined on May 7th, 2017 and no posts in topics up until this point, and no PFP (Profile Picture). Hate to sound rude, and I don’t mean to be, I’m just following the rules on now sharing links outside the forum that I’m on.
