    Did anyone notice slight differences between the IMAX and Standard showings of Rogue One?

    IMDb lists only two theatrical versions of the film:
    1. 70 mm (horizontal) (IMAX DMR blow-up) (Kodak Vision 2383)
    2. D-Cinema (also 3-D version)
    My first viewing of Rogue One was in IMAX 3D. My second viewing was in standard digital cinema.

    One difference that I noticed -- and my brain may be playing tricks on me -- happened on Yavin IV during the scene where Mon Mothma and Bail Organa converse in the hallway shortly after Jyn's failed vote to organize a team to infiltrate Scarif. Bail Organa mentions that he must return to Alderaan to inform them that there will be no peace. Mon Mothma then asks Bail for additional help from his friend the Jedi. He agrees and implies that he will send for him with someone he trusts with his life. We know from Episode IV that he sends his adopted daughter Leia, whom he trusts dearly. Her name is not mentioned in either the IMAX or the standard showings of Rogue One. However, I swear I heard Bail Organa mention his Jedi friend, Obi-Wan Kenobi, by name.

    I can't imagine there being two different cuts of this one minor scene, much less two different theatrical versions of the film sent to theaters.

    Which version do you think you hear that in? I haven't made it to an IMAX theater yet, but Obi-Wan is definitely not mentioned by name in the standard version.

    I thought I had heard Bail speak OB1's name in the IMAX version. I definitely didn't hear it in the standard version -- I anticipated it, and when it didn't arrive, I was a little surprised.

    2D was better, especially on the cgi Tarkin and Leia. Looked more realistic. ;)

    Did I read that one Twitter post right, that there's some difference in a Vader scene in the IMAX version?

    I don't recall a difference, but now I think I must check out an IMAX showing again!

    I was just at an IMAX showing, and Mon Mothma and Bail definitely didn't mention Obi-Wan by name.

    I think there was a small difference in the Vader in the bacta tank scene. You see more toward the front of Vader's face as the bacta drains a bit. I think. Sorry I'm not more descriptive, but I didn't really notice exactly what it was like in the 2-D standard version that I saw before. :oops:

    I dont understand why there would be different story cuts. I think your mind might be playing tricks on yourself :rolleyes:. Honestly, I've only seen it once and in regular 3D (my local theater doesn't have IMAX) and I dont remember if it's there or not
