In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike tells Drew all about the two most controversial aspect ratios in Star Trek history, those of The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek Into Darkness. What are the actual intended aspect ratios of these two films? What is the difference between 35mm and Super 35? What shape should IMAX be? Find out all about film and ratios in the final part of our aspect ratio series!
