Joker (2019) Trailer 1 1080p AC3 5.1 upmix

Joker (2019)

A number of people have been asking for the trailer for Joker (2019) and until recently there was a user uploaded trailer, which is no longer available. Since Joker is a Warner Bros. production, I do not have access to masters, like other studios. I have placed another request for access to Warner, which is pending. I don’t expect the result to be any different than before. With that in mind, this is the best I can do. The source is Apple’s encode of the official trailer. The video has not been changed. The audio on the Apple encode was AAC 128 kbps, which is not super, so I opted to only do an AC3 encode of a 5.1 mix I created using the DTS:Neural upmixer. This is the best I can do for Warner Bros. films.

Joker (2019) tells the origin story of the DC villain the Joker, aka Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix). Don’t expect a happy ending. Trailer 1 can be found at the link below.

Top Gun: Maverick (2020) Trailer 1 1080p DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1 2

Top Gun: Maverick (2020) Trailer 1 1080p DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1

Top Gun: Maverick (2020)

Tom Cruise returns to the role of Top Gun fighter pilot “Maverick”, and Val Kilmer is even back as “Iceman”. The first Top Gun was released in 1986 and I was 12 years old at the time and I could not wait to see it. The 12 year old me was hoping for a lot more action from being pumped up by Kenny Loggins Danger Zone. Wow, I almost forgot how terrible 4:3 Pan and Scan was, that music video is a nice reminder of how far we have come.

Top Gun: Maverick is not in theaters until June 26 of 2020, but I am already excited. I don’t care, I love Tom Cruise. I enjoy his movies. I can’t wait. Sadly, we don’t have a 5.1 studio mix of Trailer 1. But I am quite impressed in the information that the DTS:Neural upmixer was able to pull from the two PCM channels. There are a lot of directional sounds but it isn’t overly aggressive. Until a true 5.1 mix surfaces, this will fill the gap.

Ad Astra (2019)

Directed by James Gray, Ad Astra is about an astronaut (Brad Pitt) who discovers a mystery surrounding his father that could lead to the destruction of the solar system. Originally set for release in January 2019, and then rescheduled to May it is now set for September 20, 2019. Let’s hope that this release date holds. Ad Astra also stars Liv Tyler, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland. I created a DTS:Neural 5.1 UpMix from the stereo master, which you can get from the link below.

The King’s Man (2020) Trailer 1 1080p DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1 1

The King's Man (2020)

The King’s Man (2020)

Exciting news. The new trailer for The King’s Man (2020), which is the third film in the “Kingsman” (2014/2017) series was released by the post production company that normally creates the trailers for Disney films. So, now that 20th Century Fox is part of Disney, it appears that 20th Century Fox trailers will now be released from the same firm. Why is that exciting you ask? Because Disney releases their trailers with a 5.1 mix. Now the bad news. While Trailer 1 for The King’s Man (2020) had a title card indicating the 5.1 channel assignment, the file itself only contained a 2 channel mix. I am hoping that this is just an oversight, and that in the future the full 5.1 mixes for 20th Century Fox trailers will be provided. Nevertheless, I will contact the distributor to see if there was an error. In the meantime, I have created a DTS:Neural upmix from the 2 Channel master and it sounds pretty good. The King’s Man will be in cinemas on February 14, 2020.

Mulan (2020) Trailer 1 1080p DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1 2

Mulan (2020) Trailer 5.1 audio

Mulan (2020)

Disney continues with live action versions of their popular animated films. First up for 2020 will be Mulan. For those new to title, it is about a young Chinese maiden who disguises herself as a male warrior. The trailer doesn’t give too much away, and I think it has some of the best directional sound effects (swords swishing through the air) found in a trailer in a long time. Turn it up and enjoy.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Trailer 3 1080p DTS-HD MA 5.1 3

Hobbs and Shaw Trailer 3 - DTS-HD MA 5.1

Hobbs and Shaw (2019)

Just completed a DTS:Neural Up-Mix of Trailer 3 of Hobbs and Shaw (2019). I am a little scared that this trailer is showing way too much information – actually the other trailers have showed a lot of the movie as well, I almost feel like there is little left to see in the actual film. Hopefully they held a few things back. The Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) page has been updated with trailer 3 if you want to check it out.

Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Thank you all for your patience over the last few months, it has been a crazy spring. I have been working behind the scenes to make some site improvements. I am happy to say that things are getting back to normal, and I do have a bunch of new trailers to post. I meant to put this up a few weeks ago, but it didn’t happen. I got my hands on a foreign language 4K version of Trailer 1 – and like the 4K IMAX Avengers: Endgame trailer I have swapped out the foreign titles for upscaled English from the 1080p master. You will see a lot more detail in the non title scenes. The file is big – 1.2 GB @ 80 Mbps.
Head on over to the Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019) page to get the first trailer in 4K with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio
