digital movies

Wired is running a story on how the film industry has finished up on a standard that would allow digital distribution from filmakers to the theater, ending the actual film prints from being created. This article states that the movie studios could end up saving anywhere from $600 million to $900 million and the viewers (that’s you and me…) get a better user-experience thanks to the quality of the original. So, to all my fellow Fight Club fans, that means no more cigarette burns and spliced-in extras.
