    Saw the preview before Blade Runner. Looks good.

    Not sure any theaters near me have 70mm.

    Hope the list of venues expands considerably to many of the places that screened DUNKIRK. The theater I saw both DUNKIRK and THE HATEFUL EIGHT in 70 at had top-notch presentation standards, and I could really get used to 70mm screenings there becoming a once-in-a-while thing, if not exactly a semi-regular one.

    How was the thing FILMED? Because for instance, if it was all done by video camera, what is the point of 70 MM? Is that like taking an all-digital Pro Tools recording and pressing to vinyl, because it will somehow sound better due to euphonious distortion? If it was filmed to film, that would be authentic, otherwise it would be a gimmick. Frankly when I first saw digital cinema I reveled in the LACK of judder and flicker and dirt and scratches.

    No gimmicks here. Director and star Kenneth Branagh shot 65mm, the same as his epic Hamlet. I took the kids to see projected on film during the annual See It Big 70mm series at the Museum Of The Moving Image.

    The large film format folks at in70mm.com only track films shot on film.

    I actually thought this was about the Sidney Lumet film from '74.

    I don't see the appeal of this, if you've seen the '74. But I guess there might be enough people out there (over 18) who haven't seen it, and have no idea who Christie was.

    Sorry about that. I just checked, according to IMDB the 1974 version was shot on 35mm and cropped to 1.66:1

    I remember being mildly excited when reading about this last year and thinking it would be great to see an intelligent 70mm Branagh version of Murder though due to the 1974 masterpiece it would be unnecessary.

    The trailer looks like a Ritchie Sherlock Holmes sequel so due to the massive CG action sequences I don't know why they shot 70mm or chose to adapt Orient Express at all.

    Um, so why is it projected in 70 mm? Or why is it not filmed in 70 mm? I recall there was another movie like that, I'm curious how that circumstance comes about.

    The negative for 70mm film prints is 65mm wide. You shoot in 65 and print to 70. The extra 5mm for release prints dates back to when large-format films had 6-track magnetic sound - it was originally for the four mag stripes that held the sound tracks.

    Ha! Me too, I was thinking this must be a new 35mm blowup to 70.

    Anyone else not s big fan of that film? I always thought it was kind of cheesy. The big ensemble cast up to that time was being reserved for the likes of “The Towering Inferno” and that level of film. Admittedly, at that age, All I really cared about seeing was Jacqueline Bisset. :p

    The AFI in Silver Spring MD has 70mm, methinks - would go there for this if they were to get it...
