Godzilla 35mm Trailers 4K Scan

Postby Servanov » Sun Aug 12, 2018 9:22 am

Hey! I collect 35mm trailers and other things for Godzilla, and I got these two scanned, and we're working on collecting funds for a full 4K scan of a very exciting Godzilla movie! Here's the example of the kind of quality to be expected from the big project! These are 4K scans, downscaled and editing to the proper OAR of the 35mm trailers of Godzilla vs. Megalon and Godzilla 2000. I am working on getting some raw frames from the scanner to show full details and full aperture.

Godzilla vs. Megalon:

Godzilla 2000:

If you wanna help me and RedMenace out with a brand-new amazing project even better than these trailers, PM either me or RedMenace!

The Megalon trailer in particular really excites me. This is just the scan straight off the film, with no color correction or anything, and it's already light-years better than most existing copies of that trailer. To be able to bring this kind of quality, with color correction and a little bit of tasteful cleanup, to a movie that's had a long and troubled history in the US, is incredibly exciting, but we really do need your help to get it done!

Those trailers look great, and good luck with your project!
"It wouldn't be a true Godzilla film, if you didn't touch upon those things," says Dougherty. "Otherwise you're just making a big dumb giant monster movie. There has to be a sprinkle of it, otherwise you're not being faithful to the original intent of the series. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not a true Godzilla fan."

Thanks! This is all a test run for a much much bigger project in collaboration with RedMenace! I'm gonna post some raw frames from the capture soon.

Added in 10 hours 49 minutes 3 seconds:
Here are some raw frames from the Megalon trailer (the middle one isn't "raw" I corrected it but it is to show the sharpness of the scans):

Again, this is all a test run of sorts for a much bigger project of scanning a 35mm full feature of a G film never released past VHS in any country. Send me or omgitsgodzilla a message to help out!
