The first footage from “Brokeback Mountain” director Ang Lee’s upcoming Iraq War film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” at Sony Pictures is set to screen April 16th during Lee’s keynote address at NAB Show’s Future of Cinema Conference in Las Vegas.
The footage will be shown in its intended display format: 4K, 3D, and at 120 frames-per-second, the first time a feature film has ever been displayed that way. Only a handful of cinemas will likely be capable of displaying the film in its intended form when it opens in cinemas November 11th.
Based on the book of the same name by Ben Fountain, the Texas-set story follows the surviving members of a squad of soldiers who embark on a media tour at Texas Stadium as they prepare to return to Iraq. Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, Garrett Hedlund, and Steve Martin star.
