DUNKIRK will be the biggest release of any film on 70mm in 25 years, according to Kodak's Facebook site. It will open at more than a hundred cinemas in the USA and Canada in both 70mm 5 perf and 15/70mm horizontal (IMAX). FAR AND AWAY (1992) was the last film with this large of a release in this format.

Tickets purchased for the first show of the day on 7/21 in 15/70! I'm so blessed that REEL Imax is only 10 minutes from my workplace! Hope the movie's good... the image sure will be!

Wow! Outstanding movie. Even the trailers before the feature were on 70mm film. I really wasn't expecting that. I thought that they would show the trailers from a DCP cartridge or show no trailers at all. One of the trailers was for the new Bladerunner sequel. It looks positively stunning.

I've seen it twice in 70mm 5 perf. It is not only a great movie, but great 70mm cinematography. Whenever I see a film print on the big screen anymore, it brings me back to the days when all theaters showed film and I took it for granted. Now, I don't know how long it will be until my next big-screen film viewing.

Next up "Murder on the Orient Express" Coming in November. Shot on 65mm and is going to be released on 5 perf 70mm. The 70mm Renaissance has begun.

Kenneth Branagh made a film of Hamlet, a 70mm release, which was rare even in the 90's. Now, something tells me working with Christopher Nolan has encouraged him to make a 70mm film again. Very comforting to see how film is still alive.

Great credit to Mr Nolan! He's certainly reinforcing the message that you can't beat film as a shooting and projecting medium, and hopefully this makes an impression on young, up and coming directors.

I just read this about "Dunkirk".
It was on Ignacio's website:
"The success of "Dunkerque" is very important for future filming and premieres in 70 mm. Moreover, not only it was also opened in 50 theaters in 35 mm anamorphic, but according to my source in Fotokem , the only film lab in Los Angeles, there have been a small number of positives in 16 mm. And Nolan plans to take a short print run in Super-8 Scope also, paradoxically In Germany!"
Does this mean a digest? [Eek!]

Here is his website. I used Google Translate:

Great stuff in there.

I simply cannot believe any 16mm prints were struck, let alone super 8. Maybe something has been lost in translation?

The references to 16mm and super 8 are pretty clear and don't require any translation. Though it is hard to believe. It can only be prints for people on the film or for Nolan himself. Maybe the BFI wants a 16mm print? Still, that is what it says...

'GREAT PREMIERE OF MOST IMPORTANT format in a quarter century.
The success of "Dunkerque" is very important for future filming and premieres in 70 mm. By the way, by the way, r funny t is using both Tarantino and his glorious Ultrapanavision 70, and Nolan give 70 mm, using it indoors reduced) in the United States, "Dunkerque" only is displayed in 31 rooms IMAX 70 mm with 15 holes and 70 mm 109 rooms with five holes, thereby achieving be the premiere of the much more important last quarter century cinema format. Moreover, not only it was also opened in 50 theaters in 35 mm anamorphic, but according to my source in Fotokem , the only film lab in Los Angeles, there have been a small number of positives in 16 mm. And Nolan plans to take a short print run in Super-8 Scope also, paradoxically In Germany!'

Hopefully these 8mm anamorphic prints will come to market. Thank you Christopher Nolan for renewing the interest in film to the mainstream masses.

If any of these do come onto the market in either Super 8 or 16mm can you imagine the interest they will create and the price they will command? Pure gold!!

In an ideal world Nolan would see the market for these and get them on sale when the DVD/Blu Ray versions are made available, especially as the pre-print work had already been done.

Well, regardless of what he does, it would be out of my budget. However, I'm starting to see an opinion that "Dunkirk" is less repeatable than other Nolan films in terms of level of interest and details to discover. A full-frame (Imax reduction) print of Interstellar would be an absolute dream, however.

This 16mm and Super 8 news is sensational - whatever the intention is - but I'd imagine that Mr Nolan has something more ambitious than simply watching them at home in mind!

If any film director is liable to take a look at this forum, it's him, so I'll add that members here would love an update on how it might be possible to see a 16mm or Super 8 print, and I'm sure that some of us would jump at the chance to at least buy the trailer on 16mm or Super 8 scope.

Interesting also to see the reference to the Super 8 printing being "paradoxically in Germany", as this helps to confirm that there's no other lab in the world capable of printing copies!

I was happy to have been able to see Dunkirk in three film formate 35mm, 70mm and 70mm IMAX. Shame more films don't get a release like this.
