"Rebel Moon" in Ultra Panavision 70? Well, sort of...

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: PR; in70mm.com Newswire, Hollywood, CA, USA Date: 14.12.2023
Egyptian, Hollywood. Exclusive engagement in Ultra Panavision 70mm for one week only! Ticketholders will have a chance to receive mini posters, while supplies last. Filmmaker Zack Snyder will appear on opening night for a Q&A after the 7:00pm show and an introduction at the 10:45pm show.

What they did is shoot "normally", (on digital something), and then create a few (by extra squeezing of the image) Ultra Panavision 70mm prints, strictly for the gimmick of it. I suppose they framed the image during photography to allow for this, although it's not referenced that way anywhere that I've seen so far. He states "it's an anamorphic movie anyway", which would be a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Maybe that's what it is for 95% of cinemas, and there will be a few (very few) places that show it in this weird 2.76:1 ratio, which may be simply a bastardized rendering of the original photography and the framing will be kind of goofy...

At that, scroll down about 1/2 page, and there is this quote from collider.com:

SNYDER: I have [Star Wars: The Despecialized Edition]. At the theater we'll put it on and it's really a great experience to watch that movie because you really can be transported back to the unicorn that is that movie in its design and everything. It's so exotic in a weird way. It’s unduplicatable. It's funny because we were noticing that when we went to watch the other day because we have the 70-mil print of this movie at The Egyptian for a week before the movie comes out. The thing that's cool about it is, we kind of did a crazy thing – I did it in Ultra Panavision, so what we did was we had to re-squeeze the movie, and then it's Ultra Panavision 70, so we printed the movie in 70-mil Ultra Panavision We had to do the math on re-squeezing because it’s an anamorphic movie anyway, but Ultra Panavision, they never unsqueeze the movie until it is projected, so you have to put a lens on the projector that unsqueezes the movie. We were watching in the theater and in that format you really feel the retroness of the movie in a really cool way. Anyway, it's a bespoke experience for a few people, but it's cool.

Sofia Boutella, Djimon Hounsou, Ed Skrein, Michiel Huisman, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, with Charlie Hunnam and Anthony Hopkins as the voice of 'Jimmy'. Also starring Staz Nair, Fra Fee, Cleopatra Coleman, Stuart Martin, Ingvar Sigurđsson, Alfonso Herrera, Cary Elwes, Rhian Rees, E. Duffy, Jena Malone, Sky Yang, Charlotte Maggi, Corey Stoll
After crash landing on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a stranger with a mysterious past, begins a new life among a peaceful settlement of farmers. But she soon becomes their only hope for survival when the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein), discover the farmers have unwittingly sold their crops to the Bloodaxes (Cleopatra Coleman and Ray Fisher) — leaders of a fierce group of insurgents hunted by the Motherworld. Tasked with finding fighters who would risk their lives to defend the people of Veldt, Kora and Gunnar (Michiel Huisman), a tenderhearted farmer naive in the realities of war, journey to different worlds in search of the Bloodaxes, and assemble a small band of warriors who share a common need for redemption along the way: Kai (Charlie Hunnam), a pilot and gun for hire; General Titus (Djimon Hounsou), a legendary commander; Nemesis (Doona Bae), a master swordswoman; Tarak (Staz Nair), a captive with a regal past; and Milius (E. Duffy), a resistance fighter. Back on Veldt, Jimmy (voiced by Anthony Hopkins), an ancient mechanized protector hiding in the wings, awakens with a new purpose. But the newly formed revolutionaries must learn to trust each other and fight as one before the armies of the Motherworld come to destroy them all.
