Yep, Schrader made a huge misstep.

avatar
sadly Fincher has been tinkering with Se7en since the laserdisc and with every subsequent home video release. I'm quite impressed they did an 8K scan of a super 35mm negative then 'grain managed' it
avatar
I really hope Fincher didn't touch up too much up
avatar
Fincher did an 8k scan & some touch ups: https://www.indiewire.com/features/inter...234974911/

All you have to do to make a trailer green band is convince the MPAA that any blood is actually rusty water
avatar
avatar
avatar
well, this is dumb as hell. I no longer trust this guy https://www.joblo.com/james-cameron-4k-r...n-defense/
avatar
I read that a red band trailer can become green, all they have to do is turn the blood shades darker.
avatar
the new Crow trailer is MASSIVELY red-band material.. yet no red band (unless they fixed it)
avatar
Interesting. Thanks for letting me know guys.
avatar
@PDB nope... blood, like shown in the alien romulus, isn't an issue if trailers are shown in front of movies with a FSK12 rating and above.
avatar
I do not think that this blood would be had to be censored, maybe they preemtively did it, to just be absolutely sure to avoid any issues. As the trailer does not get a FSK rating, it still MIGHT be considered harmful for youth, but only if some institution would file a report, to get that checked it might cause issues. Not by general law, as it is neither pornographic, nor glorifying any nationalsocialistic past...
avatar
Nice.
avatar
avatar
Since its a teaser not meant for theathers you can have blood for the US. I assume local laws in Germany would require censoring the blood?
avatar
In the US if you do that, you can get a "Green Band" trailer that could be shown before any movie.Opposed to a "Red Band" that can only be shown before R rated films.
avatar
Common trick in trailers is to color the blood to black so it looks like dirt for a trailer. See Kill Bill Part 1.
avatar
Funny thing: The blood on the door in one shot of the teaser is colored black in the german version of the teaser.

@HippieDalek sent u a DM
avatar
@SpaceBlackKnight Yeah I bought it as soon as I could to check it out. I'm contemplating getting in touch with Entertainment Distribution to ask about it; I'd love for it to get a physical release (with the PAL speedup corrected!). If I could get my hands on a Web-dl of this it would make my International Cut HD restoration a much less painful task, and it would certainly help out with my fanedit.
avatar
@HippieDalek, I sampled the trailer off PV UK, it's a legit recent HD transfer and totally different to any other masters out there. Looks to be off an interneg or IP. I'd rent it if i'd were you!
avatar
PSA: The US Cut of Highlander 2 is suddenly available to buy and stream on Amazon UK! If I had to guess I'd say it's an old, fairly soft, HD transfer made for a DVD that was never released. It's certainly different from every transfer I've seen before. Bizarrely it's even got PAL speedup. I wonder if the UK distributor is planning to finally update their old pan and scan DVD.
avatar
Damn, I've had to RMA a few drives before but never been sent a DOA replacement. A good reminder for everyone to make backups
avatar
Ever since Seagate shut down all its live phone support (Chat only now; mostly India based) their support quality has TANKED. I have been fighting w/ them since JANUARY when my warrantied drive failed; they shipped me out a replacement drive that was DOA. Its now March.. *STILL don't have a replacement drive! Beware.. I've told them I've been loyal for 20 years but had to say I'm prob going to Western Digital moving foward. Sad. Fun fact: may have lost all my files for my fanedit I've worked on for over a year now Sad we'll see.
avatar
I know each of their films (judging from how they printed out The Boy and the Heron) have two forms of 35mm negatives (standard colour and three-strip Technicolor). https://online.stereosound.co.jp/_ct/17650657
avatar
Studio Ghibli still makes filmouts of their films to this day for archival purposes, they most recently did this for The Boy and the Heron. Unfortunately, digital prints are pure digital transfers that have the Ponyo Filter, instead of being scanned from the 35mm filmout OCNs.
avatar
Even Earwig and the Witch (the Ghibli film that was 3D CGI) used the Ponyo Filter. But I would admit, filming out to 35mm is much better when done properly.
avatar
The likes of Steve Yedlin's film emulation techniques were merely building upon what Studio Ghibli started with 2008's Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. I know other studios can use their tech too, as Studio Ponoc uses this Ponyo Filter 35mm emulation tech.
avatar
Before Studio Ghibli came along, it was some goofy and wacky effects that looked like Windows XP Movie Maker.
avatar
I know Studio Ghibli invented the first actual good film emulation techniques for when they made Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. They called it the Ponyo Filter, and they used it for all their later films and remasters of their earlier digital films like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle.
avatar
nice!

new controls to auto-convert SDR to HDR in MPC! https://i.imgur.com/BYzDA79.jpeg
avatar
I'd image the cost would be pretty similar if not cheaper then filming on 35mm and scanning it for DI
avatar
Weren't we told digital was superior in every way to film? Why emulate an inferior format
avatar
Costly though I'd imagine.
avatar
I really like the look of going from digital to film to digital. I'm surprised it isn't done more often
avatar
They transferred the digital to film again, used anamorphic lenses for the 2.39 and spherical lenses for the full sensor for the 1.43 shots, the infared cameras, etc.

Was a good source as well.

avatar
@DoomBot yes. It upscaled an SDR 1080p image into 4k HDR in realtime and also captured it on that same card w/out dropping frames
avatar
@Bilbofett is the source blu-ray?
avatar
here's my auto SDR>HDR+1080>4k upscale test. My Nvidia screengrabbed this Superresolution upscale+HDR conversion on the fly from the card's output in realtime. This is pretty damn good https://gofile.io/d/3X2Xdb

Interesting. Only works in chrome though so not sure how useful it would even be. I'm more interested in them adding an AV1 encoder finally

avatar
Usually CPC London post something online whenever they strike digital 35mm prints for new releases but they haven't mentioned Poor Things, so this may well be a legitimate 35mm print run (ie printed from an interneg)
avatar
Pretty cool
avatar
Saw POOR THINGS in 35mm last week and it was absolutely lovely!

and the B&W scenes in Dune p2 might in fact be infrared: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lDYXrR08IE&t
