Alien - 40th Anniversary Screenings
#1
Alien is getting a new 4K restoration (audio and video!) and is heading back to the big screen in March 2019!

I wonder if they have remixed the audio into Atmos for this new release? 

Means a UHD release will be on the horizon.

Sweet, hope it swings by my neck of the woods also.

Alien DC on 35mm is still the single most beautiful 35mm print I have ever seen. I hope this new scan can match that experience.

On one hand, I'd imagine it to look more natural than the previous releases since it's the original negatives, but at the same time, I feel like the color timing would be redone and would look very green like it's been with past more-recent releases?

I think we need a new thread, sharing opinions and facts about "negative scanning and subsequent digital color grading Vs interpositive scanning Vs release print scanning"... that thread will surely be long and stuffed with great info... but I'm too lazy to start it! Happy
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

40 years?! Christ, has it been that long? I think this warrants another re-watch next weekend. I only wish I could get my hands on the new scan.

I was recently in Glasgow but couldn't stay long enough to go see it in February. I imagine this will be released on 4k UHD next year.

Wasn't the first Blu-Ray release also from negative? In any case, we know fine well the color timing will be very different from the theatrical run, when was the last time anybody in the industry cared to match the theatrical colors after a re-master from negative? (except The Matrix)

I preserve movies as they first appeared in Italy.
