Have you tried iTunes and a 4KAppleTV?

Apple uses the least compression of anyone. Their 4K digital looks fantastic.

My Dunkirk streaming HD is in constant image height format, and not full screen similar to iMax in theaters. Is Dunkirk UHD streaming full screen for the action set pieces or just constant height as well (with black bars on top and bottom)? Thanks for the info. As will only get UHD if it has available full screen as well.

If the movie is in MoviesAnywhere, you can buy it on iTunes and watch it through VUDU or your other favorite app.

I have Dunkirk on my DVR from HBO, but the 4K image [blu-ray.com] sounds worth it...


Quote :
Dunkirk was shot by Hoyte Van Hoytema, with whom Christopher Nolan first worked on Interstellar. As noted in the introduction, the movie was shot on film with a combination of IMAX 65 and Panavision 65 cameras, yielding a large-format negative, which has been scanned at 4K for this 2160p, HEVC/H.265-encoded UHD. Color correction and HDR grading were performed under Nolan's supervision, and the master went through numerous passes before he was satisfied with the image.
...
Dunkirk's UHD image is stunningly vivid and refined, with a level of fine detail rarely seen on a home video display. Wherever one looks, the tiniest minutia are vivid and immediate, ...
The large groups of soldiers on the beach remain distinct and separate even in the longest shots, and the effect of seeing all those individual helmets when the entire beach has to duck and cover against aerial attack is breathtaking. Dunkirk isn't a particularly colorful film, but the disc's HDR encoding has subtly differentiated its many shadings of blue and brown to provide a superior rendition... . Every color and highlight in Dunkirk's frame appears to have been carefully tweaked for maximum impact.

Leaving aside my concerns about the film itself, the UHD of Dunkirk immediately leaps to the top of Warner's growing list of 4K presentations that fully deliver on the promise of the latest home video format. I don't know whether it will prove to be the 4K "killer app" for which the studio is hoping, but it certainly belongs in every UHD enthusiast's collection.

The Blu-Ray and 4K Blu-ray are presented in "shifting aspect ratio" but I can't be sure of the 4K stream.

From the review I just posted:

Quote :
Dunkirk was released to theaters in multiple aspect ratios, including 2.39:1 for standard 35mm projection, 2.20:1 for 70mm exhibition and both 1.43:1 and 1.90:1 for IMAX venues. For the film's Blu-ray and UHD renditions, the director has chosen a shifting aspect ratio in which scenes filmed in IMAX appear at 1.78:1, while scenes filmed in Panavision 65 are framed at 2:20:1. Nolan has previously applied shifting aspect ratios to other films, including Dark Knight Trilogy, and the practice remains controversial. Some viewers find it unacceptably distracting, while others barely notice it. I fall somewhere in the middle, but the shifting aspect ratio has played no part in the disc's video or 4K scores.

I've read that Nolan's Dark Knight 4K discs have shifting aspect ratios, but when I bought the 4K digital it was only constant aspect, so was disappointed with it. If it's the same treatment for Dunkirk, then I won't be interested in buying the digital version. I already have the Blu Ray disc which has shifting aspect, and the digital hd which is just constant aspect.

Honestly, buying 4K digital doesn't do full justice to combined intended 4K resolution and audio format. Even though most may not like it, discs are the only way to get the most out of it. At times, digital content is way off for many movies, at least the ones that I own on 4K discs ( Nolan collection, Harry Potter, John wick etc) . I have tried movieanywhere, vudu, iTunes , and neither of them come close. So it's good to make these collections, unfortunately knowing what you loose disappointments me.

I just bought it on iTunes and watched a bit through VUDU.

It looks like it is, indeed, a fixed aspect ratio. Frown
