Well according to Samsung your home theatre adds the black bars.TVs do not shrink the image and add black bars.
Most current films have an aspect ratio 2.35:1. Many recent theatrical releases distributed on DVD and labeled as "widescreen" retain this very wide aspect ratio. Because the image of these movies is wider than a widescreen TV, your home theater places black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. Most widescreen DVDs on the market will not fill the entire screen on your TV because they have been recorded in an aspect ratio that is different from your TV's.
Back in the DVD days they were added by the player/TV but Blu-rays and now UHDs have them encoded as part of the image.Well according to Samsung your home theatre adds the black bars.

Yeah that would be a logical option however not all TVs allow that option with a 4K signal, don’t know if that’s something that’s changed recently but my Panasonic certainly doesn’t allow it.If people want to watch it in widescreen then just zoom it, nothing wrong with providing the full image and letting people choose, same goes for grainy films where it is far better to offer an accurate presentation complete with grain and if people want the super sharp de-grained look they can just use the settings on their TV to alter it rather than scrubbing it clean resulting in a waxy mess being the only option.
Granted a bit of the framing might be off but if they had put out a 1:85.1 release it would have just been the 4:3 release we have with sections of the top and bottom masked, sure some fans are already hard at work doing their own "Widescreen" version on their computers by doing just this.Zooming it is not watching it on widescreen, that's just making things worse.
This is the last I am going to talk about the aspect ratio (he says and 10 minute later there will be 10 more posts ) the issue isn't that it is in 4:3 or wanting to watch it widescreen, its that it is a odd decision to begin with. How many times will the average person see this in a IMAX? How many people have IMAX screens at home? It seems like people are talking more about this then the actual film.Granted a bit of the framing might be off but if they had put out a 1:85.1 release it would have just been the 4:3 release we have with sections of the top and bottom masked, sure some fans are already hard at work doing their own "Widescreen" version on their computers by doing just this.
What are you meaning by menu screen?Does the menu screen spoil the factis in this movie like the original did? I never saw the trailers so maybe the trailer ruined everything like they always do.superman
