But, for the most part film restorations usually offer a new experience from movies you may have watched a dozen times before.
There are hundreds more, if not thousands of movies that could be considered for Ultra HD Blu-ray or Digital 4k. Even with the Disney re-issues there are no new 4k editions announced. But imagine Star Wars: A New Hope with a new 4k transfer, HDR to expand the color range with some degree of subtlety, hopefullyand improved soundtrack? The upgrade would certainly remind us that Stars Wars is the best of all the franchise films, followed closely by The Empire Strikes Backalthough some would argue the reverse.
Read this article. Charlton Heston stars as Judah Ben-Hur — a rich Jewish prince who is sent to slavery during the 1st century. The movie was shot in Technicolor and printed up to 70mm at 2. Even the audio was ambitious for the time, mixed in 6-Track Stereo on a Westrex system. Ben-Hur in 4k would be rich with detail, and it would be interesting to see what an HDR spec would do to the color rendition. The film has great performances by Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, and Max Pirkis that are only enhanced by the spectacular imagery.
This is one film that could look benefit from a 4k upgrade and even better with High Dynamic Range and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Avatar is one film that could really impress at home with High Dynamic Range expanding the rich color depth and contrast the film is memorable for. The film is on the darker side and one might worry about the imagery losing some of its dramatic qualities. A new Dolby Atmos soundtrack could also put this film at the top of the best 4k Blu-ray releases.
Roizman is also known for The ExorcistThree Days of the CondorNetwork and Tootsieall of which would be great to watch in 4k. The French Connection was shot in 35mm at 1. A restored edition of the film would be something to look forward to in home viewing.
There were plenty of other movies considered for the tenth spot in this list again, in no particular order among them Taxi DriverBraveheartand Lawrence of Arabia. But as soon as Kill Bill came to mind it was a must include. Both Kill Bill: Vol. Maybe Tarantino will get around to 4k upgrades when he completes his tenth, and supposedly final, motion picture. How about you? Is there a film you really want to see in 4k Ultra HD? Let us know in the comments below! Pulp Fiction. Forest Gump os a pos piety movie.
Not even 3rd Of Lawrence of Arabia is available in 4K digital streaming on Amazon.It's been a decade since Avatar broke the all-time record at the box office — and it's now lost its crown to Avengers: Endgam e.
But that doesn't worry James Cameron as we continue to wait for Avatar 2. If anything, it's given him hope that this seemingly endless quest will be worth it. Cameron has always had a plan to return to the world of Pandora — it's just one that is taking an awfully long time. But let's not get too ahead of ourselves and just focus on Avatar 2 for now. What do we know about the sequel?
To cut a long story short, Avatar 2 is finally going to be released apparently on December 17,having been pushed back from December This presumes that, as previously confirmed, production will continue despite the ongoing world situation.
As mentioned before, a new Avatar movie will follow every other year all the way until Avatar 5 on December 17, Well, that's the plan anyway. If you want the full story of the sequel's long and drawn-out journey to the screen, here goes. Looking back on it, it seems almost absurd that Avatar 2 was scheduled for release in Decemberand Avatar 3 was scheduled for December Now scheduled to land on Pandora December 17, pic. Those dates got pushed back, you will not be surprised to learn.
In April filming was meant to start on Avatar 2. But April came and went, and filming never got under way. In January the following year, it was announced that work on the motion-capture element of the film would start by Augustbut it actually began in September. However, a fourth Avatar movie was announced, which pushed the whole lot back to December, and respectively.
All of the sequels were pushed back againwith Avatar 2 planned for December and the rest set for and presumably. James Cameron blamed the "very involved" writing process for the delays. Through it all, Cameron has been completely chilled out about any delays. Luckily for Cameron, the Disney-Fox takeover hasn't hit the Avatar sequel the way it has hit other movies.Avatar 2   also marketed as James Cameron's Avatar 2 is an upcoming American epic science fiction film directed, produced, edited, and co-written by James Cameronproduced by 20th Century Studios.
Cameron is producing the film with Jon Landauwith Josh Friedman originally announced as his co-writer; it was later announced that Cameron, Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silverand Shane Salerno took a part in the writing process of all sequels before being attributed separate scripts, making the eventual writing credits unclear.
Cameron, who had stated in that he would like to make sequels to Avatar if it was successful, announced the first two in following the widespread success of the first film, with Avatar 2 aiming for a release. Preliminary shooting for the film started in Manhattan Beach, California on August 15,followed by principal photography simultaneously with Avatar 3 in New Zealand on September 25, Performance capture filming wrapped in Novemberwhile live-action filming began in April Everything changes when the R.
Vin Diesel   and CJ Jones   have been cast in undisclosed roles. InCameron stated that if Avatar was successful, he hoped to make two sequels to the film. The storyline, although continuing the environmental theme of the first film, would not be "strident" since the film will concentrate on entertainment. The sequels were confirmed as continuing to follow the characters of Jake and Neytiri in December InCameron mentioned a possible third sequel for the first time; it was officially confirmed the following year.
In AprilCameron announced at CinemaCon that there will be four Avatar sequels, all of which will be filmed simultaneously, with release dates in December,andrespectively. New crew members include cinematographer Russell Carpenterwho worked with Cameron on True Lies and Titanicand Aashrita Kamath, who will act as art director on all four sequels. It was highly optimistic that we could start quickly until scripts are written.
If there's no scripts, there's nothing, right? The scripts took four years. You can call that a delay, but it's not really a delay because from the time we pushed the button to really go make the movies [until now,] we're clicking along perfectly. We're doing very well because of all the time that we had to develop the system and the pipeline and all that. We weren't wasting time, we were putting it into tech development and design. So when all the scripts were approved, everything was designed.
Every character, every creature, every setting. In a funny way it was to the benefit of the film because the design team had more time to work. Most of the actors, the key principals, have all read all four scripts, so they know exactly what their character arcs are, they know where they're going, they know how to modulate their arc now across the first two films".
He was optimistic that the delays would not harm the films' success, comparing it to his films Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Alienswhich were both commercially successful sequels released seven years after the original films. In Mayit was reported that the release of Avatar 2 had been pushed back to December as a result of the announcement of three upcoming Star Wars films  to be released respectively in DecemberDecember and December InCameron stated that the sequels were being written as "separate stories that have an overall arc inclusive of the first film", with the second having a clear conclusion instead of a cliffhanger to the next film.
I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they'd tune out every time we were talking about the other movie. The writing took longer than expected, forcing Cameron to delay the release of the films further in Just refining.Contacted by Varietysources close to Disney in Asia said the studio is not involved in the re-releases, and that these are matters decided on by China Film. More than Chinese cinemas across the country have already reopened their doors so far, although takings have so far been minimal.
Larger numbers of theaters could re-open in the next month as China re-emerges from the various national and state restrictions on movement — and it is now up to distributors to ensure that cinemas have product capable of reeling in enough viewers to make it worth the health and financial risk of remaining open. It is listed on ticketing apps as debuting April 30, but other sources show different dates. Other U. Re-releasing well-loved older titles minimizes financial risk and does not require audiences to experiment with untried content.
With the Chinese public still uncertain about whether and when to venture back into crowded places such as cinemas, none of the Chinese-made tentpole movies which had their planned Chinese New Year releases are yet willing to commit to a post-virus release date.
To overcome the current dearth of content, China Film Group — the government-backed giant that controls distribution of all revenue-sharing Hollywood movies, and also dominates physical distribution in the Middle Kingdom — is preparing a slew of other older Chinese blockbusters.
