We just love trailers
As you will have noticed we have posted some of our own trailers. That is trailers we have that Wrench scanned for us. We have a bunch more to do in the future as well, but we thought we’d point you towards some trailers that others have had scanned in their own respective seedy film labs. These are trailers you won’t find on any blu-ray or DVD – well that’s not true, you’ll find most of them actually. But what you might notice is that often they’re of really low quality on official releases. We hypothesise that in most cases this is because they were scanned as prints on Telecines configured for positive or negative film, resulting in those really crushed blacks and muted colours. So kudos to people who scan their own, and here are some places you’ll find them…
The 007 Dossier
Posted by a guy who goes by the handle “Williarob”. This guy is prolific, he has so far scanned more than 50 trailers that we know of, mostly Bond, and has posted most of them to his website and associated Youtube channel. He posts the non-Bond trailers on his other Youtube channel. Hours of fun lie ahead there!
