Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might receive a 70mm release

Warner Bros. is reportedly mulling over a 70mm release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

With all of the movie hoopla going on right now surrounding the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is getting some good press, and it's spreading across the US with special 70mm screenings of the film - including a longer cut of the movie, with an intermission.



Well, THR is now reporting that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might get a 70mm release, thanks to the increased availability of 70mm-ready screens - courtesy of The Weinstein Company getting cinemas to prep their screens for The Hateful Eight. Zack Snyder directed part of Batman v Superman in 65mm IMAX, which as Slashfilm reports "makes a 70mm projector the best possible way to see the movie on the big screen".


It's obviously more expensive to show 70mm, but Batman v Superman would be something that's worth it. With Warner Bros. reportedly spending up to $410 million on the movie, making it the most expensive movie ever made, I don't know why they wouldn't go the extra mile (or extra 70mm at least) and show off Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 70mm.
