That's quite possible seeing as how we only have average multiplexes in the area with basic DLP projection systems. However, I may not like the modern, heavily stylized digital IP "look" and modern amber/teal color timing in general. Give me real 65mm any day. The cinematographic work of Ron Fricke, who normally shoots with large-format film and custom cameras, is breathtaking and far more natural than the work of today's Hollywood DP.
Wasn't Arri supposed to be coming out with a 4k capture and workflow version of the Alexa to compete with Sony, RED, etc.?
It'll be interesting to see what Panavision comes up with in the 4k and 8k arena, seeing as how their Genesis camera wasn't all that great and very video-ish.
