Trailer 2 is here! Get it with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 at the Avengers: Endgame (2019) page!
Here is the second trailer for Brightburn (2019). I hoped to have this up yesterday, but it took me a little while to get the mix together. In other news I just came back from a screening of Captain Marvel (2019) and it was a really fun movie. There were not many people in the audience, but since it was a 4 PM showing I hope that explains why. Not long until Endgame!
Trailer 2 for Hellboy is now available at the Hellboy (2019) page. Please note, this is the RED BAND version, however it does not have any MPAA Ratings Bands attached.
Trailer D for the upcoming X-Men film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019) is now available with DTS-HD Master Audio!
I recently received a higher quality version of the IMAX Sonic Anthem – Celebrating 1000 Theatres. This version has a video bit rate of 40 Mbps compared to 3.4 Mbps of the earlier one on the site. In addition the new file has a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track instead of a lossy AC3 5.1 like the original upload. You can get the new version at the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers Page. Thanks Noah!
Here is trailer 1 for Angry Birds 2 (2019), which will hit theatres in August. You will notice that the lossless audio is encoded in DTS-HD Master Audio. Going forward it is my intention to drop PCM and DTS and use DTS-HD Master Audio instead. This should solve some other issues like odd channel mapping with PCM tracks in VLC, as well as issues some experienced with the old DTS 1536 kbps tracks. AC3 will still be included as a backup on mkv files.
With regards to HEVC (H.265), I am not going to be uploading any more trailers in H.265 until I can work out some issues I have experienced. I did an HEVC encode of Frozen II which, ironically, would freeze my computer when played and could only be recovered by doing a hard boot. It is my intention to provide HEVC encodes in the future, but it still needs some work.
Here is trailer 1 for Frozen II (2019) is now available. Some really nice low frequencies in those crashing waves! Frozen II hits theatres in November.
I recently completed a 5.1 mix for Hobbs and Shaw, which can be found at the Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) page. I also added a 10 bit H265 encode.
A few people have been asking for the Super Bowl big game spots for Captain Marvel and Avengers. Unfortunately, I don’t have those.
Star Wars: Episode IX is probably the most anticipated movie of 2019, although it has a lot of competition from Avengers: Endgame (2019); thankfully they are spaced over half a year apart. There has been a lot of speculation over the past couple of weeks as to whether we will see a first glimpse of Episode IX during the Super Bowl, which will be held on Sunday, February 3, 2019. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 pm ET, and will be broadcast on CBS in the United States.
The rumors that I have seen suggest that Disney has purchased three 30 second spots for Episode IX, which together will comprise a complete teaser. While the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) premiered at the Super Bowl last year, it served as a place to generate interest especially considering the huge amount of negative stories and attention that Solo was being bogged down with. And with the release of the teaser during the Super Bowl, it also served as a trailer announcement, as the first full trailer dropped the following day. Considering how well known the core Skywalker Saga is, and there is no bad press surrounding the production of Episode IX, I tend to think that Disney would be better off spending the money on other films. But I could be wrong.
When will we see the first full trailer?
The first trailer for Episode VIII – The Last Jedi was released during Celebration Orlando, on April 14, 2017. It specifically dropped on Friday afternoon just after it premiered at Celebration Orlando. Celebration Chicago takes place this year from April 11 to 15th. If they follow the same pattern, then it will likely drop on April 12, 2019 at around 2 PM Eastern. To me, that sounds like a good bet. But if it does show up next week, I’ll be ready.
