Sneakers (1992) Trailer - AV Elements

Looking for a 35mm scan of this trailer and/or a stereo audio track for it:
Sneakers (1992) Theatrical Trailer - YouTube

I've got the 480i version from the BD, but the end credit anagram effect is very blurry, and the audio is mono.  All I need is that end sequence showing the main credits unscrambling.

As for the audio, any stereo source would be fantastic, regardless of the quality of the video to which it's attached.
The youtube clip is stereo - opus 160kbps and AAC 128kbps; sure not the best, but not that bad for a stereo track.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

It's 2.0 mono.  Sad  I thought it was stereo as well until I opened up the track and saw that the left and right channel waveforms were identical.  It just blows my mind that a trailer for a 1992 film doesn't have stereo audio.

No it's not; albeit the tracks seems identical - and I must admit they are pretty much such - left and right channels are not the same; just load them on an audio editor - Audacity for example - invert phase on one and mix them; if they were identical, mixed track should be silent.

Well, better to have a weak stereo track than a mono one! Wink

Hmm, well…it certainly sounds mono to my ears.  I could of course increase the separation a bit, but that typically leaves the resulting audio with a bit of a flange effect.  I don’t even hear any stereo imaging in headphones.  Everything sounds like it’s coming from the center.  If it’s stereo, it’s the most subtle stereo I’ve ever heard in my life. I think this may be a situation where “technically” stereo makes little to no difference. For all practical purposes, it’s mono.

I’ll just do my standard “fake stereo” fix (offset one channel by .01 second). Works wonders in these situations.
