Cinema cinema, upcoming films and their technical characteristics | October 2022

In Italy there is no public database for access to technical characteristics of new films that will be shown in cinemas on the peninsula. In light of the interest that Avatar’s controversial return has generated in Italian cinemas, we’ve decided to paint it ourselves, month after month. However, cinematic releases are weekly, with technical characteristics often announced close to distribution. The list will then be updated when we get the official information. Glossary – 2K and 4K denote the resolution of the film, respectively 2048 x 1080 pixels and 4096 x 2160 pixels at full size. However, this resolution can be slightly different to adapt to the different “flat” or “band” aspect ratios of a cinema projection. Here are some of the most common examples: – 2D, 3D, IMAX (2D/3D): All 2D movies are always rendered with a 14 fL (Foot Lambert) screen illumination equivalent to approximately 48 nits. In the case of 3D (always with goggles) the luminance drops to 4 fL (about 14 lumens) or to 6 fL (about 20 lumens) depending on the projection system used in the room. For IMAX theaters, which adopt special projection systems with a wider aspect ratio, the luminance can reach 22 fL (about 75 nits) in 2D projection. Anyway, these are SDR shows: in Italy there are currently no cinemas capable of offering HDR shows. – Fps refers to frames per second of projection. In most cases, movies are shown at 24 frames per second. Some titles not designed exclusively for the theater instead are shown at 25 frames per second. Beyond these beats we’re talking about HFR (high frame rate), which can be 48, 60 or 120 frames per second. In terms of sound, all movies in theaters are shown with 48kHz/24bit PCM loss. The number of channels can be 5.1, 7.1 multi-channel or immersive Dolby Atmos (maximum 128 speakers in the room). In the case of IMAX projections, IMAX 6 Track (6 channels) or IMAX 12 Track (12 channels, including ceiling speakers) formats are used from the week of September 29 to October 5 of ANNA FRANK and classified diary distribution: Lucky Red Genre: Animation Video: 4K 2D 24fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1DANTE Distribution: Rai Cinema Genre: Biography Video: 2K 2D 25fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 DRAGON BALL SUPER: SUPER HERO Distribution: Warner Bros Genre: Animation/Action Video: 2K 2D 24fps Flat (1.78:1) Audio: PCM 5.1IN VIAGGIO Distribution: Rai Cinema Genre: Documentary Video: 2K 2D 25fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 Night 12 Distribution: Theodora Genre: Drama/Thriller Video: 2K 2D 24fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 MURDER IN THE WEST END Distribution: Walt Disney Genre: Thriller Video: 2K 2D 24fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1DICCITY Distribution: Vision Distribution Genre: Drama Video: 4K 2D Band 25fps (2.39:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 SMILE Distribution: Eagle Pictures Genre: Horror Video: nd Audio: ndALL o n BOARD Distribution: Medusa Film Genre: ComedyVideo: 2K 2D 24fps Scope (2.39:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 WEEK 6 to 12 OCTOBER EVERYWHERE EVERYWHERE AND ALL AT THE MOMENT Distribution: I Wonder Genre: FantasyVideo: nd Audio: nd THE BEARS DON’T EXIST Distribution: Academy Two Genre: Drama Video: 2K 2D 24fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1HATCHING – LA FORMA DEL MALE Distribution: Adler Entertainment Genre: HorrorVideo: nd Audio: ndLA LIFE IS A DANCE Distribution : Bim Distribution Genre: ComedyVideo: nd Audio: ndPSYCHO Distribution: Cineteca Di Bologna Genre: Thriller / Horror Video: 4K 2D 24fps Flat (1.85:1) Audio: PCM 5.1 (subtitled in English to Italian) approx Orfano Distribution: Ray Cinema Genre: Comedy Video: nd Audio: PCM 5.1 Ticket to Heaven Distribution: International Pictures Genre: Comedy Video: nd Audio: ndSETTMANA October 13-19 Distribution: I Wonder Genre: Drama Video: nd Audio: PCM 5.1 THE BOY AND THE TIGER Distribution: Medusa Film Genre: Family Video: nd Audio: PCM 5.1 THE GIRL OF THE SWAMP Distribution: Warner Bros.
