Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will break some new ground, as it’ll be the first movie to be filmed with Red’s new Weapon 8K digital cameras.

4K is becoming more and more common now, and the Avengers: Infinity War two-parter is being filmed in 6K as will Rogue One. With 4K UHD Blu-Rays just barely hitting the market, it’ll be a long time before this will mean anything at home…but the IMAX release should look stunning.
