Scott saw "Pixels" and he enjoyed it because it appealed to his inner nerd. The graphics are gorgeous. He went to see it because it was shown in Dolby Vision's High Dynamic Range. There's only five theaters in the US that support it. The next movie in HDR will be Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.

Can you convert a movie to HDR or must you shoot it? Scott says you have to shoot your film with HDR in mind and then post process it. in TVs, Samsung is the only TV that's come to market with true high dynamic range displays and they're just stunning. Leo says he's confused because of HDR in still photography. Scott says it's the same idea but has a different approach to it that makes it more natural, rather then by tone mapping, which makes it more ethereal. So HDR is excellent for movies. It really does make the image far more vibrant and alive, without being plastic-like.
