Didn’t see post here. Variety spilled the beans.
“The picture blends different flavors of high-tech â€” 3D, 4K and high frame rates â€” to push filmmaking beyond anything the public has ever seen, even beyond the capacity of the worldâ€™s movie theaters.”
Think we got best director winner here?April 15, 2016 at 9:34 pm #1201746556
Maybe, though it would be quite something for Ang Lee to be a three time Best Director winner without ever having won Best Picture. I just got the book and can’t wait to read it.April 15, 2016 at 10:31 pm #1201746564

The novel is great. I hope the film delivers. Can’t wait to see the first trailer!April 16, 2016 at 1:19 pm #1201746638

Love him, but there is no way he gets any awards consideration with this tiny role. It is more like an amusing recurring cameo.
I had thought the same thing about Alan Arkin in Argo but that was enough for a supporting nod.April 16, 2016 at 1:40 pm #1201746642
The few reactions on Twitter to this are absolutely GUSHING in admiration. All saying this is getting plenty of tech love at the very least!April 16, 2016 at 4:25 pm #1201746673

Not an exact match since John Ford won an Oscar for Best Director for How Green Was My Valley which also won Best Picture, Ford did win three additional Oscars for directing The Informer, The Grapes of Wrath and The Quiet Man – none of which won Best Picture.April 16, 2016 at 4:42 pm #1201746677
To be honest I doubt Ang Lee can win a 3rd at this stage unless Billy Lynn ultimately becomes the frontrunner for Best Picture, taking Lee along with it.April 16, 2016 at 4:59 pm #1201746686
I don’t think Ang Lee can win this unless the film is the frontrunner. It would have to be fucking earth shattering.April 16, 2016 at 5:47 pm #1201746711
I know this is not the right thread but why isn’t anyone talking about James Gray for Best Director? It’s a BIG, Revenant-like project, and been owed some respect by the industry. Lee and Scorsese have won before. Parker is still a nobody. I can see it happening.
With respect to JackO’s original post, I could be wrong, but didn’t Wim Wenders do something similar in that awful film he did with James Franco?April 16, 2016 at 10:24 pm #1201746748
They showed 11 minutes of it and it wowed!
The presentation of an 11-minute sequence from the film in its native format (3D, at 4K resolution and 120 frames per second for each eye) electrified the conference in Las Vegas, leaving even experienced pros grasping for superlatives to convey what they had seen. Their praise wasnâ€™t reserved for the technology, but for the film itself as well.April 17, 2016 at 12:20 am #1201746751
I hope enough theatres shell out the money to project this in the way it is supposed to be seen.
I think I will be covered in Toronto, at least.April 17, 2016 at 11:20 pm #1201818146
I have no Answer about this thing till the time, so give me sometime for it……..April 18, 2016 at 7:13 am #1201818192

This sounds eerily like the statements many were saying this time last year about AGI and The Revenant, yet……
