Trailers with DTS-HD Audio!
As posted on our social networks earlier this week, we’re officially kicking off our weekly newsletter. We had a soft launch last week just to test out the system and everything went pretty smoothly.
Many times when we get trailers with 5.1 audio, it often comes encoded in DTS-HD, a lossless audio codec. Very high quality, but not supported by the mp4 container. It also tends to be very large in size. I’ve been trying to figure out how to properly deliver these to our fans and decided to test it out via our newsletter.
We posted the Ant-Man trailer with 5.1 audio this weekend, re-encoded in AC-3:
Now we’re going to share the trailer with its original high quality DTS-HD audio:
- Video: English, 1920×1056 (16:9), at 23.976fps, AVC (Main@L4.1) (2 Ref Frames)
- Audio #1: Unknown / 1509Kbps, 48.0KHz, 16bits, 6 channels, DTS (MA / Core)
- Audio #2: 640Kbps, 48.0KHz, 16bits, 6 channels, AC-3
Here are the hot new trailers released this week:
- Melissa McCarthy plays a clumsy secret agent in Spy. Comedy is definitely her cup of tea.
- It’s weird to see Selma Hayek in such a big action role, but Everly looks like a fun mindless movie to watch.
- The premise for Death Squad is rather ridiculous, but maybe that's why it’s worth watching.
- Kidnapping Mr. Heineken stars Anthony Hopkins being kidnapped by Jim Sturgess and Sam Worthington. They’re trying to play the mind games aspect of it, but I’m not quite buying it.
- The new animation The Tale of The Princess Kaguya from Studio Ghibli is a wonder to watch.
- Underdogs is a cute little animation where little foosball people come to life!
Here are our recommendations for movies opening this week:
- The Boy Next Door is a psychological thriller where Jennifer Lopez has an inappropriate relationship with well… the boy next door.
- If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, Mortdecai features Johnny Depp in a role much similar to Austin Powers.
- For something the whole family can enjoy, you may want to check out Strange Magic, a new animation coming out of Lucasfilm that spins the fantasy tale of little tiny creatures that live in the forest.
- A little obscure, but critics are saying Jennifer Aniston delivers an award-winning performance in Cake.
- If you’re into musical romantic pieces, Song One may be the one for you starring Anne Hathaway and Johnny Flynn the musician.
- Finally, Black Sea is for all you treasure hunters out there with Jude Law leading a team of misfits.
