    I got my ticket yesterday. I’m sitting in the same spot as for TFA.

    Midnight? Moat people will be in bed for that time zone.

    • November 25, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      I’m not a Moat people.But living within a moat would be cool.

      Sound like the dream job.

    I’ll continue to not forgive how the Lincolnshire IMAX got rid of their 70mm projector…ugh.

    • November 25, 2016 at 5:46 pm

      Rogue one wasn’t shot in 70mm I don’t think. However, some of those 70mm theaters already upgraded to IMAX laser which is very cool and would be the ideal theater to see Rogue One since it was shot 6k digital. Which state is Lincolnshire in? I live in Chicago & a laser projector was just installed there.

      70mm projectors will probably only be used if Dunkirk or if Episode 8 was partly shot in IMAX format… did Rian film any of 8 in IMAX or is it all 35mm?

      • November 25, 2016 at 6:07 pm

        Yes, Rian did shoot part of Episode VIII in IMAX.

        Lincolnshire is in Illinois as well, north of Chicago. I forgot that the Navy Pier IMAX installed the laser, how does it look?

        • November 25, 2016 at 9:19 pm

          Very cool!

          I haven’t seen the laser yet, but I can say with confidence it will be the best theater to see it at for several reasons (asides from the inconvenience of getting there/ expensive parking).

          #1. It’s HUGE. I saw Interstellar there on real 70mm and it was very impressive.

          #2. It will be a better image fidelity than any other IMAX in Illinois (better contrast levels, deeper blacks & brighter brights/ more color), + IMAX laser theaters also have 3D sound systems with overhead channels.

          The only exception to that would be the AMC PRIME theaters which actually do get brighter than IMAX laser, but will not show the film in 3D… only IMAX laser will do 3D. On brightness scale, AMC PRIME can do 22 foot lamberts, IMAX laser can do 18 foot lamberts, vs. old IMAX’s which are 12 Foot lamberts and most other cinemas are 8 foot lamberts. Rogue One & all other Disney/ Marvel films will be mastered to take full advantage of these theater’s capabilities 🙂

        Umm… Actually it was. Was shot with an Arri Alexa 65, in ultra panavision 70 (70mm film includes the 5mm audio. So really, the picture itself is 65mm).

        So… Yeah lol

        • November 26, 2016 at 5:08 pm

          When TFA showed in IMAX digital it wasn’t displayed in 70mm format/ aspect ratio… it was cropped compared to the film version which was only displayed in several U.S. theaters, so 95% of anyone who saw TFA in IMAX didn’t see it as it was intended to be seen. Maybe it will be different this time since it was filmed digitally, assuming IMAX digital is capable of displaying that aspect ratio.

          • November 27, 2016 at 2:58 am

            I get what you’re saying… but that’s not “real” 70 mm. The IMAX 70mm displays as a large square that can fill the entire IMAX screen. Even if Rogue One is printed to 70mm film to be projected in a 70mm IMAX theater, it will still display in the Ari Alexa aspect ratio (rectangular image not filling the full screen, as opposed to IMAX which fills the entire square)

            To get a better idea of what I’m talking about, look at the graphic on this site that shows the sensor/ aspect ratio comparisons in the middle of this page:


          • November 27, 2016 at 2:59 am

            Or in other words, if they want to make Rogue One fill the square IMAX format they’d have to crop off a significant amount of the frame to make it fit the screen… highly doubt they will do that.

          • November 28, 2016 at 12:36 am

            I am not sure what “real” 70mm is. You must be talking about IMAX 70, which uses an IMAX ratio. Rogue One uses Ultra Panavision lenses, thus, the Ultra Panavision 70 ratio (which i believe is the widest?). Never the less, it doesn’t make it ‘not real 70mm’. If anything, since it is ultra panavision, it is ‘real’ 700, since that has been used way before IMAX.

            It’s the same lenses the Hateful Eight was shot with.

    This news is agonizing for me because when 7’s tickets went on sale I was held up @ the doctor’s office with a cell phone drained of power… so I was only able to get tickets for a 2 AM show on premier night 🙁

    On Monday I start my new job and am concerned they will go on sale while I’m stuck @ work or in traffic… I work 8 am to 6 pm central time… I hope they go on sale midnight.

    • November 25, 2016 at 9:03 pm

      Check your theaters website. I have Cinemark where I live and they go on sell at 12:01 am eastern time. I’m hoping their system allows me to buy tickets early like it did for episode 7 so I don’t have to deal with it crashing.

      • November 25, 2016 at 9:20 pm

        Very cool, I’ll check it out. So far I haven’t seen anything for AMC theaters… hope some info hits soon. Thanks for the info!

  • November 25, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    OMG these are the best posters yet!

  • November 25, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    The first poster looks really good!

  • November 26, 2016 at 5:51 am

    I adore the L.A. times poster.
