What the hell does that even mean?

I can't help but think this is going to become a Battle Royal situation where nobody wants what Richard P. Rubinstein is selling: an overly expensive mandatory theatrical 3D release with Blu-ray 3D release. Then 5-10 years from now after Rubinstein's looked at the red ink long enough on the 3D conversion he sells cheaper rights without mandated 3D and theatrical releases optional. By then 8K is the new transfer standard and his decade old master is too obsolete to make for a decent release.

I can't see anyone walking away happy from this. Not the fans, not Rubinstein, not even the distributor who will be underwhelmed by the meek sales for the dated master. The saddest thing is I don't think Romero will be around long enough to see an 8K (or beyond) remastering of Dawn because of this dipshit.
The combined weight of the horrors I have authored wrought would crush your carbon hearts into perfect diamonds of terror!

A Few Ants Short. And what the hell, check out my DVD Collection won't you?
