What are you going to watch on an 8K display? 80-90% of all current film and television production is finished at 2K, the remainder at 4K. 35mm film is generally thought to have somewhere between...

World War Z would have been an upconvert, as well, as it was finished at 2K. Night at the Museum was shot on Super 35 and had a 4K DI, but its many effects shots may also have been uprezzed from 2K.

I saw Trumbull present and speak about his short, UFOTOG. Actually, he only supports HFR for 3D filming. For standard 2D, he thinks 24p is fine, and he even said he thought it was a mistake to shoot...

And there have only been three films made at 48fps, with none on the way anytime soon. It's not as if you're missing out on much content.

People watch for content. As long as the picture quality hits a minimum baseline - it's watchable and in focus, and the sound is intelligible - people don't care.

On the Waterfront was made early into the transition to widescreen, but was composed to work equally well at 1.37, 1.66 and 1.85.

When outputting PAL material, with the player set to output 1080p, is it directly upscaling the 576p signal, or does it downconvert to 480p, and then upscale that?
