Here is the first trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper (2018). The .mp4 contains the official stereo mix in AC3. The .mkv file contains the official stereo mix in PCM, DTS and AC3. I added a PCM 5.1 upmix as well.
Here is our first look at Disney / Marvel Studios Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), which is due July 6, 2018. I am quite looking forward to this sequel having watched the first installment just a few weeks ago with my son. We have been on a Marvel Cinematic Universe binge the past month, in anticipation for Avengers: Infinity War (2018). We are all caught up, and are waiting anxiously for Thor: Ragnarok (2017) to be released on Blu-ray – hopefully in time to catch Black Panther (2018) in theaters.
Now, the release of the Ant-Man trailer actually puts more emphasis on the missing trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018). Some are beginning to speculate that the trailer has not been released because the film’s release date may be pushed back to December from May. It would also be a neat experiment to see how well the marketing goes without a trailer – as in, the absence of a trailer creating as much buzz as having the trailer – and everyone will go into the film completely unspoiled. That would be a new approach for such a big name film, and one that could likely work in this case. The other speculation is that there will be a 30 or 45 second clip during the Super Bowl (Disney has purchased two spots), with the full trailer to drop on-line immediately after. If that is the case, I will be ready on Sunday. If the trailer does not show up on Sunday, I think the odds of the release date changing will go up – or the marketing strategy for this one is not going by the book.
The latest trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018) has been added to the Pacific Rim: Uprising page.
I am working on the On-Line spot for Ready Player One (2018) and more.
Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer release date update:
The latest rumours suggest that the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) will drop today, or during the Super Bowl. Or anywhere in between. The lack of a trailer so close to the release is causing a mix of excitement and concern. I am not worried yet, but what is the hold up? If you want to know when I upload the trailer, be sure to subscribe by email, or follow thedigitaltheater on facebook or twitter. You will be notified as soon as it is available on the site.
The second trailer (Trailer C) for Red Sparrow was released today, and you can find high quality stereo encodes at the Red Sparrow (2018) page.
There have been a few rumours swirling around about the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) would be released tonight on ESPN, but apparently it looks like the third trailer for Black Panther (2018) will show tonight. I expect to have it here before too long. If that is the case, it is expected that the Solo trailer will debut on Good Morning America on Friday, January 12. The last time I checked, this was unconfirmed – and it still is as of this writing. And since Disney, Lucasfilm and Marvel has been consistently supplying 5.1 mixes, I expect those two trailers to have official 5.1 mixes.
That is it for now…
This will likely be the last update of 2017. I am heading out for holidays in a few hours, and I am looking forward to the break. I have added a lot of trailers in the past few hours. First up is Trailer 1 for Sicario 2: Soldado (2018), which as its name implies is the sequel to the 2015 film, Sicario. Sicario is a film that I have had all the intentions of seeing, but it has not happened yet. It is still on my list. The first trailer was mixed from the individual dialogue, music and effects tracks.
The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) page has been updated to include the Russian official 5.1 mix. Also updated is Annihilation (2018), to include the new second trailer. Like the first one, this contains a 5.1 upmix from the PCM stereo source. And finally, Ready Player One (2018) includes Trailer 2A, which was also mixed from the dialogue, music and effects tracks.
I want to thank all of you for making 2017 so great. I look forward to continuing to provide you with the best quality trailers in the world, in 2018.
See you next year!
Here is the first look at the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which will be released next December. The animation style is really beautiful and you can find the trailer at the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) page.
Another up-mix for 20th Century Fox. Trailer C for Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been released today. The film will be released on January 28, 2018. As this is an up-mix, I included the official stereo track on the .mkv file, for those who are interested.
Alita: Battle Angel, written and produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez is set to be released in July. The first trailer has been released, and is available at the Alita: Battle Angel (2018) page. This is an up-mix as stereo is all that I can get from 20th Century Fox. If you are interested in the original stereo mix, it is also included in the .mkv file.
Here is an up mix from the stereo master for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018). I expect to have an official mix in the coming days.
