Daddy’s Home (2015) Trailer 2 1080p PCM and AC3 5.1 and other news 2

Daddy's Home

Daddy’s Home

Trailer 2 for Daddy’s Home is now available. It can be found at the Daddy’s Home page. I think I prefer trailer 1, but this has some laughs as well. Daddy’s Home opens December 25th.

I also updated the Spectre page to include the trailers for all the Daniel Craig Bond films in 5.1 audio. If you are having a Bond-a-thon before the release of Spectre you may want to pick those up.

To follow up on the big event from last week, the release of The Force Awakens Trailer 3, it appears that it will not be in theaters again this week. The trailer listing from deluxe includes Joy Trailer E, Don Verdean Trailer 1, and The Night Before Trailer 4 (which we will likely have soon). There is still no sign of The Force Awakens Trailer 3 coming to theaters. I will keep an eye out to see if it is on schedule for next week in time for Spectre. I know a lot of people are hoping to see it in IMAX when they go see Spectre. And that may provide a more dynamic mix for us as well. Here’s hoping.

 


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Trailer 1 1080p AC3 5.1 and PCM 5.1 1

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Finally, a film adapted from a Jane Austen novel that will also appeal to husbands and boyfriends. I would apologize for the gratuitous use of the image above, but I think it captures the tone perfectly: Victorian era garb and setting – plus some weapons to kill (re-kill?) zombies. Anyway, Trailer 1 can be found at the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies page. As usual there is an .mp4 with Dolby 5.1 and an .mkv with PCM 5.1.

I mixed the audio on this trailer from the split audio tracks, which included stereo dialogue, stereo music and stereo effects. It took me about 4 hours to do the mixing and encoding. I hope you enjoy it.

3D Side by Side (SBS) and other news 2

3D VideoI have converted the .iso files to 3D SBS .mkv files. Goosebumps is still encoding so it will be uploaded later today when I get home from my day job. The completed ones are Angry BirdsThe Finest Hours, The Martian and Teasers 1 and 2 of The Force Awakens.

I will also have 2D files for The Revenant with PCM and AC3 5.1 available later today. The next film to add to the site will be Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I normally hate zombie films – but this one looks quite different. Coming later in the week will be Trailer 2 of Daddy’s Home. I am going to be completing some research and compiling a 4K buying guide to help those who may be thinking about getting a new 4K set this before year end. I will also be reviewing Terminator Genysis and adding other trailers as they are available.

Finally, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who visited and interacted here over the last week. I have received a lot of positive feedback, which is just wonderful to receive. And some critical feedback as well, which has helped me to make improvements to the site. I also saw a lot of people who were quick to help others with technical problems. It was a very rewarding week. Thank you.

Apple Encode of The Force Awakens Trailer 3 with PCM 5.1 Audio

The Force Awakens Trailer 3

The Force Awakens Trailer 3

For those who prefer the Apple encode of trailer 3 for the video, but my encode for the audio, I have remuxed the Apple encode with the 5.1 PCM audio track. This one has the MPAA rating card and the “tickets now available” tag at the end. The files can be found at The Force Awakens page.

The 3D Side by Side conversion is still on my to-do list. I have not forgotten.

Update: The International Trailer with “December 17” instead of “December 18” at the end has been added. I am not sure if this mix is a theatrical version from Europe, but it is louder than previous files. I will let you decide on which you prefer.


Updates Part II 2

The Force Awakens One Sheet

The Force Awakens One Sheet

Good news and bad news. The good news is that I have uploaded the trailers for The Force Awakens to mega.nz and provided the download links on The Force Awakens trailers page. There are now two download options for the Lossless and 3D iso files. This should solve the issue some have had with downloads disconnecting. That is the good news.  The bad news is that the other trailer file I received sounded exactly as the first, except the dialogue was in French. If there is an interest in the French version please let me know and I can upload it. The other bit of bad news is that I completely ran out of time to do the Side by Side 3D conversions of the first two trailers. I will have to leave that to tomorrow. My wife is going away for the weekend, and demands that I spend some time with her. She has been very patient this evening.


Updates

detailsI just received a new file for The Force Awakens Trailer 3. This one has 12 channels of which 2 are online stereo mixes, and 2 are broadcast stereo mixes. I will see if the dynamic range is different on this file for the 5.1 channels. It may since the first had all tracks as (Broadcast). This also appears to have originated from a different facility. I probably will not be able to do anything further with this for several hours.

To help with those who are having difficulty downloading the Star Wars trailers, I will be generating some additional download links to mega.nz for those files. I think there has just been too many people trying to access them at the same time. I am also going to do Side by Side conversions of the 3D .iso files since some have been asking for that.  To recap, we have a new source for The Force Awakens Trailer 3, I am going to provide alternate links to hopefully get better download performance, and upload additional 3D trailers in Side By Side format. Look for that over the next 12 hours or so!
