    This seems more like a press release than a news post.

    My personal prediction: A gimmick that will be short-lived.

    I predict about the same level of success as Barco Escape.

    Actually, with the exception of the quote at the end, those are my own words. Press releases don't usually offer up what critics of a product are saying.

    My apologies, Martin. I read the headline, saw the promotional image, read the first paragraph, and didn't get any further.

    Poor man’s Cinerama. I saw one movie with Barco Escape, the two side screens weren’t used for the entire movie but the two extra projectors made fan noise all the way through.

    We discussed this a little in the Spider-Man Far From Home thread.

    In the end, I have little interest in setups like these where the enhancements are not created by the filmmakers, but rather, by a third party company.

    This is why IMAX is still the gold standard - when they have presentations with enhanced footage, that footage was created by the original filmmakers.
