Justice League Snyder cut question
Posted by: Racer X
Date: August 12, 2021 05:57PM
Just started watching the recut version based on Zack Snyder's original vision, and the damn thing is 1440x1080! WTF?

Why the 4:3 format? Its not like everyone is watching this on Sony Trinitron tube TVs.

Any ideas?

Apparently, director's choice: [www.denofgeek.com]

Scanning briefly, it sounds like it has something to do with IMAX, which I suspected when I read your question.

And if it was 2.35:1, you'd have black bars on the top and bottom anyway, so you're just trading the horizontal black bars for vertical black bars (although it is jarring since we're no longer accustomed to seeing major motion pictures this way).

I can see IMAX as the reason.

Snyder filmed with IMAX in mind, thus the 4:3 aspect. The same shots used in the Theatrical version are severely cropped:




San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater
