Ultra Panavision aspect ratio of 2.75:1 on the above image.

I read this week that Quentin Tarantino shot Hateful Eight with anamorphic lenses on 65mm film to bring it to a Ultra Panavision 70 aspect ratio of 2.75:1. I’ve been experimenting with what aspect ratio to use for a hero image on websites while still bringing enough content above the fold to entice viewers further. 16:9 is too tall and even a CinemaScope-like aspect ratio of 2.35:1 still doesn’t quite cut it.

2.75:1 tho just might.
