Maybe I'm dumb but how is 4k on a big ass movie screen better than the original film version?


I think that’s because 35mm film projectors are pretty much gone from theatres (my job included) So 4K tends to be highest most of these digital projectors project at. Plus when we did these events at my theatre, they were mostly blu-rays or 4K discs sent to be played through a HDMI connected to the projectors’s receiver

Also this isn't the "original film" version according to Cameron in the video is the "film he set out to make" with "big surprises" so it's a special edition / director's cut type of thing with some restored footage it seems with all the footage restored to 4k.

 

In any case I trust he knows what he's doing since he's one of the best directors out there and knows what's good.

It's been a long time since I've seen this one, so I'll happily watch a Cameron approved remaster. I hope tickets are available for AMC A-List. For special events like this they are sometimes and aren't others, if it goes to AMC theaters at all.

 

Hopefully he'll get around to that True Lies remaster soon as well.

I think it's just the previous special edition/director's cut (Cameron's preferred version), now all remastered in 4K, based on the wording in the tweet. Not sure what the big surprises could be except a huge upgrade in audio/video but we'll see. Cameron does like to fiddle with his films - Avatar has 3 cuts, so it's possible. Right now for The Abyss there's just the theatrical cut and the "special edition" (which is basically a director's cut).

I do believe this is next with The Abyss done. He said awhile back that a True Lies bluray was ready to go and he just "hadn't had time to review it" yet. So I think it must be coming.

The Directors Cut makes some pretty massive changes to the ending of the movie if I remember correctly...

 

This used to be one of my favs and I haven't seen it since I was a teenager... I might actually go check this out.

 

Edit, so it's out one day only and that one day is a Wednesday???

I'm sure the remaster is being done for streaming on Disney+ as well.

More importantly, Aliens is finally getting the 4K treatment.

 

GIZMODO.COM

In the realm of home entertainment, one of the longest-running burning questions has always been “When is James Cameron going to release all his movies in 4K?” For years, there hasn’t been an answer—but finally, it's here.
