Thanks to a kind user, I was able to get the stereo HD Master for the Ready Player One Comic Con trailer. Since I only have stereo, I put together a 5.1 upmix which you will find on the .mkv file with PCM, DTS and AC3 encodes. I also included the PCM 2.0 and AC3 2.0 track on the .mkv file for purists. If you prefer the .mp4 file, there are two: one with the 5.1 upmix, and one with the 2.0 stereo track. You can find these at the Ready Player One (2018) page.
What’s the deal with Universal?
You may have noticed that I have not been uploading trailers from Universal as of late. The reason is that they have not been releasing their assets with split or 5.1 tracks. I followed up with Universal, and was in contact with their director of creative content; who informed me that they will only be making stereo assets available. What a shame….they released the first trailer for The Mummy in 5.1 which I thought was the way they would go forward, but everything since has been stereo. So, if anyone out there has access to Universal and Fox (or any other – for that matter) trailers with 5.1 tracks, please let me know.
As I mentioned earlier, I am heading on vacation – so I may be out of touch for a bit. I am looking forward to all the great content that will be coming in the fall – new trailers for The Last Jedi, Avengers: Infinity War and a whole lot more.
