Black Adam (2022) Trailer 2 4K DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1 1

Black Adam (2022)

The past month or so did not go as planned. You would not know it judging by the lack of new content on the site, but I have spent a lot of time working behind the scenes to keep the site up and free from internet baddies. I believe I have closed all the holes that were causing issues. It is a total pain though, so hopefully I can spend as much time on content moving forward. Especially since October to Christmas usually sees a lot of new trailers being released as the summer blockbuster films seek a showing at the big fall films. Then there is usually almost nothing in January and February.

Speaking of big fall films, Black Adam (2022) should fit that category nicely. The Black Adam (2022) page has been updated with Trailer 2, which took longer to get a 4K version with an official 5.1 mix than I thought it would. Nevertheless, here it is.

An update on the Shazam trailer: That was a totally bad encode, and it has been unpublished. I did spend time trying to find out what exactly happened so that it would not happen again, but I have no idea what happened. I am going to do some new encodes and republish shortly.

That is it for now. Head on over to the Black Adam (2022) page to get Trailer 2!


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Trailer 1 1080p Lossless 10 bit video 2

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022)

Last night Marvel Studios dropped the trailer for their next theatrical film. Yes, we now have the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022). With the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, director Ryan Coogler stated that T’Challa – played by Boseman, would not be recast. In this trailer, and the image above – we get our first glimpse of the new Black Panther. I expect to get the 5.1 mix later this week. Head on over to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) page to get the new trailer.

Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) Trailer 1 1080p Lossless 10 bit video 1

HASBRO, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS AND ALL RELATED CHARACTERS ARE TRADEMARKS OF HASBRO. © 2022 HASBRO.

It looks like the first trailer to coincide with San Diego Comic Con International 2022 is Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023). Not much is known about the plot, but it stars Michelle Rodriguez, Chris Pine and Sophia Lillis and arrives on March 3, 2023. Stereo audio only at this time but I am sure we will have a 5.1 version, and maybe 4K too before long. You can get the first trailer at the Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) page. As a side note, I used to play Dungeons & Dragons when I was a kid. It was great fun and really helped me learn how to read. My mom first worried that I was going to commit suicide, but after she saw the improvement in my reading she wasn’t so worried.

Bullet Train (2022) Trailers 1 and 2 1080p DTS-HD MA and AC3 5.1 1

Bullet Train (2022)

Download Trailers 1 and 2 for Bullet Train (2022)

As promised, here are the two trailers for Bullet Train (2022)! From David Leitch – director of Deadpool 2 (2018) comes an action (comedy) about Ladybug (Brad Pitt), an unlucky assassin who finds himself facing off against other assassins on the world’s fastest train – in Japan. Although as I learned from Top Gear, it is not as fast as a Nissan GT-R. It’s Deadpool meets Kill Bill in this summer action film arriving in theaters on August 5.

Trailers 1 and 2 contain the official 5.1 tracks and are there are a variety of video encodes. You can download them at the Bullet Train (2022) page.

San Diego Comic Con

Tomorrow is the kick off for San Diego Comic Con 2022. Back when this site launched on July 22, 2015 (two days until the 7 year anniversary), one of the first trailers I uploaded was the Comic Con trailer for Batman vs. Superman. Those were good times. If you are interested, You can find it at the Justice League (2017) page. So, will we get a Comic Con trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom? What about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever? Or Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)? I will be keeping an eye out, and will upload what I can find. Just don’t expect it to be instant. It takes a lot of time to do the transcoding, encoding, uploading and posting. But I am sure by the time the weekend is out we will have at least one cool new trailer.

Site News

I am still having problems with email forwarding. So, if you use the Contact Us function, I don’t actually get it in my email – but it does show up in the admin portion of the site – so it just makes it harder to get back to people in a timely fashion. And if you do not provide a valid email, I can’t reply.

Black Widow (2021) Inside Look 1080p PCM and AC3 stereo 3

Black Widow (2020)

Black Widow (2020)

Happy 2020! It is time to get back into the swing of things. First up is the Black Widow (2020) Featurette, which doesn’t seem to have any spoilers, which is always a good thing. The featurette was only released in 1080p and stereo and you can get a mkv with PCM and AC3 stereo, or a mp4 with just AC3 stereo below. I plan to also upload the 4K Black Widow trailer either later tonight, or early tomorrow. I am also working on Morbius (2020), but I want to wait until I get a better sound mix before I post it, and I hope it will be available before the weekend. I also plan to upload the second trailer for Birds of Prey (2020) very soon as well. Stay tuned, there is more to come!

New Rogue One Trailer on the way. Trailer 2 drops on July 15th.

Rogue One

Rogue One

Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 is in London from July 15th to 17th and it is widely expected that a new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be shown to fans attending the event.

Making Star Wars has found that a 3 minute trailer for Rogue One will air on ABC from 8 PM – 9:01 PM EST during the special “Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey.

I will have the trailer on the site as soon as I can, and Disney is usually pretty good at including the PCM 5.1 tracks in their press kits. However, at 3 minutes this is not a theatrical trailer so there is no guarantee what we will have in terms of audio. Either way, I will add it to the site as soon as I can.

I have been reading that there is some concern over the quality of the film, a large number of re-shoots, and perhaps a change in tone of the film to be more family friendly than a “war film” as described by director Gareth Edwards. I thought that the first trailer looked fantastic, so I hope the new one keeps that same level of tone and intensity.

In the meanwhile, you can get the 5.1 version of Trailer 1 at the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story page, including 3D and Lossless Audio versions.

4K UHD Blu-ray discs to be available March 1, 2016

4K UHD Blu-ray

4K UHD Blu-ray

4K UHD goes from streaming to high quality physical media

March 1 is now less than 3 weeks away, and this is the day when the first batch of 4K UHD Blu-ray discs hit the streets, in what promises to be the best video presentation in the home to-date. Physical media, not being constrained by the bandwidth limitations of streaming services are best suited for the large file size and bit rate of 4K Ultra HD video. The UHD Blu-ray spec allows for three disc sizes: 50GB with 82 Mbps bitrate, 66GB with 108 Mbps, and 100GB with 128 Mbps.  For comparison, Netflix streams 4K somewhere around 15 Mbps.

 

HDR – What is that all about?

You may have heard the term HDR being used a lot lately. HDR is “High Dynamic Range”, and many of the first UHD Blu-ray discs to be available will be mastered with HDR. This provides a greater level of contrast – whiter whites, and blacker blacks, for a more life like picture. While the discs will be HDR, and UHD players HDR compatible, current 4K TVs for the most part — are not. So, if you are in the market for purchasing a 4K TV, you may want to wait until later in the year, because HDR will be what you want. If you already made the jump to a 4K TV….well, things will still look good until you upgrade. If you do not care about HDR, you may also be able to save quite a bit on existing sets once the certified sets hit the market.

I want to buy a new 4K TV, how can I tell if it meets the HDR standard?

Ultra HD Premium

Ultra HD Premium

The easiest way to be certain, is to look for this logo. The “Ultra HD Premium” Logo will appear with TVs that meet the HDR standard set out by the UHD Alliance. Just to add some confusion, there is also Dolby Vision, which is Dolby’s version of HDR. Dolby Vision has support from LG, TCL, and Vizio on the manufacturing side, and Universal, Warner, MGM, and Sony on the studio side. Dolby Vision is a more advanced spec, and requires compatible Blu-ray players as well as Dolby Vision mastered content. The good news is that Dolby Vision equipment still meets the Ultra HD Premium standard – but not the other way around.

Dolby Vision will likely come with a higher price tag to Ultra HD Premium. So, if you are interested in getting the best possible picture and are not concerned with the cost – waiting for the Dolby Vision TVs, Blu-ray players, and Blu-ray discs may be your best option.

4K UHD Blu-ray discs available for pre-order

If you have a 4K TV and want to start watching content on March 1, there are several titles available for pre-order, including The Martian, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Hitman: Agent 47. You can pre-order those (and more) here: 4K UHD Pre-Orders

4K UHD Blu-ray players available for pre-order

Samsung UBD-K8500

Samsung UBD-K8500

The first 4K Ultra HD Player from Samsung – the UBD-K8500 is also available for pre-order here: 4K UHD Blu-ray players

Watch out for 4K Upscaling players!

A warning on players!  There are a lot of Blu-ray players out there that are listed as 4K Upscaling players. Those are not 4K UHD players. Those have software that convert a 1080p source to 4K. They are not native resolution, and will not playback any 4K UHD Blu-ray discs.

 

I hope that this information has been useful to you. It is always confusing when new standards and products hit the market, and I wanted this post to clarify some new concepts without being too detailed. If you think that I have made any errors in my assessment please let me know.


IMAX Pre-Show Trailers are on the way 2

IMAX

IMAX

I have been working on few IMAX pre-show trailers over the past few months. I must admit, I got started on this and then got a bit distracted. However, I am working on putting these together and in some multiple formats – PS3 compatible and HTPC versions much like the other demo trailers on this site.

I found a multi channel source of ‘Never Compromise’ which many have asked for, but it needs some adjustments. The surrounds seem too loud, or the narration in the centre channel is too low. One interesting point is that it is 5.0, not 5.1. Needless to say, the rumble of the jet engine is not very convincing. So I am working on a better mix for use in home theaters – that mix may be perfectly fine for an IMAX theatre, which has much larger speakers than what people are using at home. This will be available in 1080p and 4K as well.

In terms of Theatrical Trailers, there has not been a lot of new content available as of the past couple of weeks. Angry Birds Trailer 3 will be up soon, although I have had some syncing issues with the audio. It is fine in the beginning and the end, but off in the middle. I spent way too much time trying to figure out why, and I am just going to start over on that one.


Batman vs. Superman Trailer 2

Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice

The latest trailer for Batman vs. Superman has been released by Warner Bros. I will need to do some work on it, and I will be uploading it later today. I would expect it around 8PM EST – if all goes well. To be notified when it is ready for download, you can subscribe to this site, or follow me on facebook at facebook.com/thedigitaltheater
