    Studios are notoriously sketching when revealing actual cost and break evens on anything.

    It’s all assumptions.

    I’m sure Paramount and Fox still show Titanic in the red. ;)

    Probably why there was no (official) sequel. :P

    I recall that hilarious MTV Movie Awards skit with Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn trying to sell Cameron on a sequel idea.

    Titanie I think it was called. :lol:

    According to Bill Hunt, "Alita: Battle Angel" is going to get a combo 4K/UHD & 3-D release which is the only way you can get the 3-D version in the States. Looks like James Cameron still has some pull with Fox/Disney.;) Apparently, we don't know if it's an exclusive, but I'll be buying this combo release, no matter if it is or not on July 23rd.

    Thanks for the heads up. This is a definite buy for me. I hope it turns out to be a general release and not some lame Best Buy or Amazon exclusive.

    I will switch to Canada or USA Amazon whenever this becomes available, but I have had it on pre-order from Amazon.uk for months.

    Sadly, I can't do anything with 4k. I am stuck in HD world.

    Sometimes the spirit is willing but the pocketbook isn’t. I know that all too well.

    Same boat.

    The problem for me with having a dual display setup (TV and projector run from the same system) is that to upgrade formats, it’s more than just the expense of buying one thing. That’s why, when my HD plasma TV died and 4K was the only replacement option, I didn’t worry about utilizing the new set for 4K playback. To do that, I’d need to get a new receiver since mine can’t do 4K video. And since I don’t ever watch movies or content that would shine in 4K on the TV to begin with (that’s all stuff I watch on the PJ), then I’d have to get a new projector too. Not to mention the UHD disc player. As cool as it would be to have the latest and greatest, I can’t personally justify spending several thousand dollars on new gear when I’m still very satisfied with what I have on a daily basis. My stuff ain’t broke - it just ain’t state of the art anymore. I can live with that for now.

    Dolby Vision is a proprietary flavor of HDR, and this has been discussed in the other Alita thread.
