Is there any word on whether or not this will
be shown in DLP format?
Nope. If they were going to show it in DLP format, they would've done the same for Fellowship of the Ring. All three movies were shot on non-digital cameras, and I haven't heard of any films shot non-digitally shown in DLP format.
Well Harry Potter & TCOS was show on dlp here in Waterloo, Ontario. Pretty sure they shot that one on film
The DLP theaters don't sit empty. AFAIK.
Signs, Scooby Doo, Windtalkers were all shot on film and released in DLP this summer. Other film to DLP presentations included Mission to Mars, The Perfect Storm, and a number of others.
It was VERY well documented that Episode I was shown in DLP theatres and it was shot on film.
The real question is: what's the advantage unless it's shot digitally, or, why would you WANT to see it in DLP? Do your theatres have a history of running awful prints?
Well, Mitty, where I live that is unfortunately true. Even going to Memphis doesn't necessarily mean a crap-free presentation. But I do take pause at a non-digital film being shown digitally. That is simply because I don't know enough about the picture conversion process to know if it muddles with the colors or contrasts. If I can find a well-presented film print, I'll stick with that until it's proven otherwise that the DLP is superior.
I'd almost bet they will -- the Extended Edition of "Fellowship" was shown in DLP at the special fan screenings earlier this month. Someone I know who attended told me it looked incredible, better than a film print, and she had seen the original cut theatrically several times.
I saw Chamber Of Secrets in DLP and it was stunning. As an added bonus, all the trailers were in DLP also. They showed the Two Towers trailer and I was blown away at how crystal clear it looked and how awesome it sounded.
Rest assured I will see TTT in DLP next month, probably in Edgewater NJ.
Many disagree, but to my eyes, every DLP presentation has been perfect and looked and sounded much better that their 35mm counterparts.
DLP for me.
Currently New Line hasn't any plans to release TWO TOWERS in DLP.
Film is better than DLP, but there are so many variables in film presentation that can lead to poor presentation. Once set up properly, DLP is vastly superior to the majority of film presentaions, IMO. But thats because in most theaters, film presentation is handled rather poorly.
I saw FOTR EE in DLP - it looked good, a bit more detail in some scenes, but overall, I didn't notice any significant improvement over film projection. I would imagine some theatres will carry TTT in DLP, but I won't go out of my way to check it out.
I've seen SIGNS and FOTR:EE in DLP, and there are positives and negatives to the presentation. Positives: great sound and really vibrant colors (and of course the lack of rips, scratches, etc later in the run). Negatives: you can still see scanlines occasionally, especially with titling and near areas of high contrast -- a white highlight against a darker background, for example.
