It has been a bit of a slow week, but I finally have something to post. Trailer 1 for ‘Rings’ has been uploaded and is available at the Rings (2016) page. Rings is a sequel to the 2002 horror film ‘The Ring’. I normally do not like horror films as I tend to find them to be lame, but I did find the 2002 ‘The Ring’ to be properly good. My wife on the other hand, loves horror movies but can not watch them. I will show her this trailer later tonight and she will tell me never to show it to her again.

I have had a lot of people ask about where these trailers come from. I get some of them from others who have access to the source. Some of them I mix from HD masters that I have access to being a publicity site. For ‘Rings’ I mixed it from a source that had individual tracks for narration, dialogue, music, and sound effects tracks. To give those who are interested a sense of what goes into the process, the .mkv file for Rings Trailer 1 has an additional 8 tracks that demonstrate the progression of the mix. Pass 1 has just the sound effects in the surround channels and it evolves to Pass 8 which is the version before the final mix on the file.

Tonight, you may be able to catch the theatrical screening of Rogue One Trailer 2 in 4K. It was released to theaters this week in 4K and is likely to be screened with ‘The Mechanic: Resurrection’. It is odd though as The Mechanic is only being released in 2K so I am not sure if the Rogue One trailer will actually be screened in 4K. But if you want to see it in the theater, your best bet is ‘The Mechanic: Resurrection’

I planned on adding ‘Arrival’ to the site last week. Unfortunately, I am not happy with the result of what I have available. I do have individual music and effects tracks to work with, but the dialogue is only available as part of the stereo mix. I find the dialogue to be unintelligible, especially Forrest Whitaker, who seems to be very muffled. With that in mind I have decided to hold off on posting until I have something better to post.

  1. Just a quick note about theatrical displays – where I worked, a Regal Cinemas with Sony 4K Digital Projectors, all of the projectors would scale any of the source files to their native display of 4K, so it didn’t really matter whether the source was 2K or 4K because it all displayed at 4K. That said, a 4K source would look better because it didn’t have to be scaled. I actually tried this out with the 2K and 4K versions of The Avengers trailer back when I was working there. I played both back to back after hours and compared and could see that the 4K trailer was a little bit sharper.

    All that to say, likely the Rogue One trailer will be displayed in cinemas (that are 4K capable) at 4K and then the feature would be displayed at 2K scaled to 4K. In general, I don’t think that people would notice without seeing the same content back to back and looking for the differences.
