I rented Identity the other day and noticed it was in a 2.35:1 ratio... I thought this was a little odd for a mystery thriller type film basically shot on a set... in the dark. Then, last night I watched Anger Management and noticed it also was in a 2.35:1 ratio. I mean, it's not like there's any huge epic-style shots in this film... it's Adam Sandler. Is it entirely the director's choice? Or (here's my theory), is the film industry pumping out more 2.35's to combat the popularity of 16:9 TV's? Like in the 50's when 4:3 TV's became popular, films began being shot in wider ratios to incent people to continue to come to the theaters. Your thoughts?
