textless movie intro?!?

13 Replies, 9819 Views

Looking for RE4 open matte version (that I have not found so far...) I encountered a 3D top/bottom version, bad quality, cropped on the sides, which has the intro completely textless (we are talking about 4 minutes here) - and I don't mean only text credits, but also title animation:

I wonder from where it comes, and if someone else has ever found anything similar.

Perhaps some workprint/screener? But I couldn't find any information on Google.
Quality is quite low, but it's due to compression - geometry and colors are the same found onto a BD. Dropped the whole file, retained just the first minutes, for the "who knows?" reason! Big Grin

Well, something similar, sure, but not to the extent that even the titles are missing, even the title of the movie, that's very weird.
However, Universal and MGM outside of the US have been doing stuff kind of like this on many movies ever since the DVD era because of multilingual reasons. Thus, you do not have the on screen introduction text in Scarface, nor the article about riots typed "live" on screen. The Terminator collector MGM does not have introduction text either. Intertitles for time and locations are missing on Scarface, Terminator, Usual Suspects, Silence of the Lambs, Carlito's Way, the Jason Bourne movies, to name a few. These texts end up being pourly made in a subtitle form for each language. And for some of the aformentionned titles, it only concerns the DVD.
Yes, I'm aware of this... but this case is unique, I guess!

Sometimes, when I discover things like this, I feel myself a bit like "Indiana Jones and the lost movie cut/grading/put_something_weird_here"! Big Grin

I might add, titles are missing on BOurne 2 & 3 french Blu-rays, they are however burned in on the american discs. I forgot to check the 4K versions but they might be the same.
Also the french Bourne 1 Blu-ray, DVD, and even 4K have an additional scene where Bourne drink beer with the people at the house about two third of the film.
I have no clue why this scene keep being added in all european versions masters, as it was missing from the US cut.

Any of those on blu ray?

Yes. The Universal ones.
Oh, and there's also a Scandinavian Blu-ray of John Wick free of all fancy and regular burnt-in subtitles.
Finding movies without burnt-in subs is not that easy, but still possible - like, for example, HP8 and True Lies.
