A first: James Cameron's Avatar is being released in a wide array of formats. For digital cinemas that have top movable masking Fox will be sending a 1.85 version to maximize the size of the picture. Digital cinemas with side movable masking will receive a 2.35 copy. Imax classic cinemas will have a picture in an approximate 1.66 ratio, whereas the smaller Imax digital theatres will probably be around 2:1. For Imax, the ratio information I was given is only approximate. The 35mm cinemas, both 3-D and flat versions will be in 2.35. I'm very curious to get everyone's reaction to this new type of multi-purpose theatrical release. Trust James Cameron to have figured out a way to get his audience the biggest possible image during the picture's first-run digital and Imax engagements. No matter how the screen or projection system is configured.
