I see that The International is shooting part of their scenes on 65mm via an Arri 765. Does anyone know much about the production and why 65mm was chosen?

I'd bet dollars to donuts that it has something to do with "The Dark Knight". That, or perhaps they're using it for plate work, although nowadays, if it isn't regular 35mm or digital, it's Vistavision. IIRC, "The Patriot" was one of the last films to use 65mm SFX plates.

As far as I know 65mm was used for plates. The film features a mix of 65mm, 35mm and 16mm.

Looking at the IMDB page, it looks like you're probably right Max.

Hopefully they'll put the whole thing through a 2K DI to mask out all of that pesky detail in the 65mm and all of that pesky grain in the 16mm :rolleyes: . . .
