Default Vertical Format Films?

https://deadline.com/2020/02/searchi...er-1202859091/

I can't imagine the benefit of this format. Everyone's phone flips to landscape. Is Bekmambetov just trying to be different? Maybe shoot it both ways, just in case?

He's set to start filming the first feature in vertical format. What am I missing? I know TikTok is popular, but it's not a movie.

Agreed. And I also agree with finalact4’s question of whether the director is “just trying to be different.”

Plus, it’s going to be difficult to pull off scenic mountain range shots when necessary. Maybe instead of “Vertical Format” it ought to be called “Non-Panoramic.”
