Philips 56" LCD TV ULTRA widescreen

I can't find a anyone else putting a thread up..so I will...this spring Philips Electronics are gonna release a new aspect ratio. a new ultra widescreen 21:9. here's the full article I found for this


So I have mixed feelings...movies that are shot in the cinemascope and released on blu-ray and dvd....gonna look hot on this tv....watching normal tv and movies that aren't shot in that format.....hmmm is there gonna be "ultra" black bars....

what do you think?

Looks kinda cool, it would be nice if another mfg would make them also i.e. sony or samsung, since philips isn't controlling their US sales anymore new tech from them is scary. Im not to fond of the lost resolution though that would bug the hell out of me.
