THX Eclipse Trailers (long and short) added 5.1 Dolby 1080p HD and site update

I uploaded two THX trailers – Eclipse Long, and Eclipse Short. Both feature the classic “Deep Note” with some rather hypnotizing visuals.



You can get them here or you can use the Audio Format Trailers menu at the top of the page.  I have more THX trailers that I will be uploading before too long.  To keep up to date, you can sign up for email alerts, or follow us on facebook at www.facebook.com/thedigitaltheater to get notified when trailers or features are added.

This site is still in its very early days, as of today (August 12, 2015) it is just 3 weeks old. So if you are just stopping by for the first time, and are surprised by the lack of content – well, that is the reason.  I have lots of things that I want to do, but it is taking me longer to get them completed than I had originally planned.

One aspect that I have started working on is 4K and the home theater of the future.  4K is very much like this site – in its early days – but there is going to be a lot of great content coming over the next year. I hope to put together some practical buying guides to help those who are interested in going 4K. Look for that soon.

I am also going to be reporting on the new object based sound formats Dolby Atmos and DTS:X so that you can make good buying decisions.

The other part of the site I want to develop is technical reviews of films and equipment. This will probably have to come last as it will take time to get the other site components together as well as taking the time to watch a film and then write a review about it.

One thing that I am not going to do, is to attempt to please everyone.  If I watch a trailer and I do not like it, I will not post it on this site. That is the great part of owning a corner of the internet, you can make it what you want it to be. I want this to be the part of the internet that has the good trailers. Quality over quantity.

So stay tuned, there is more to come.


Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day - Resurgence (IDR)

Independence Day – Resurgence (IDR)


The long anticipated sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day has finally been revealed. Independence Day: Resurgence or IDR, is scheduled for release next summer. The film features many of the original cast – Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Bill Pullman (minus Will Smith) and Brent Spiner as Dr. Okun. Now, you may recall that Dr. Okun appeared to have died in the original film so it will be interesting to see how he makes it back. Needless to say, Independence Day was a great movie for home theatre 20 years ago but the effects are looking very dated now. I am certainly adding Independence Day: Resurgence to my list of upcoming films that I am looking forward to see. No word on when the first teaser will be released, but I would expect sometime this fall. We will have it here.
