Spider-Man: No Way Home and the other Marvel of 2021 films, namely Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, Black Widow and Venom: Carnage's Fury, have generated almost the total in the US: 1.35 its 4.45 billion dollars.
These days, while browsing the Internet with 'Spider-Man' after watching 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', I remembered that in 2002, when I was 10 years old and a whole fan of comics, there was a teaser trailer of the arachnid in the one that appeared the Twin Towers. With the tragedy of the attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, all the content where they appeared was eliminated, and at its premiere in 2002 they were not seen. The teaser could be seen circulating on the Internet, but the order was not to show promotional images of 'Spider-Man' with the dilapidated buildings.
The Twin Towers were going Spider-Man: No Way Home free streaming to be very important in the film, so this trailer was scrapped, and the videos that were on the Internet allowed it to be Spider-Man is able to watch online full movies seen but in very poor quality, because Sony did not officially distribute it. Thus, since it was shown in theaters in a promotional way in 2001, it had never been officially seen in its 35 millimeters, or in Full HD or 4K. Until youtuber YoshiKiller2S came to our rescue by uploading a restored 4K copy. This is his story.
An impressive quota, legacy gives a part to the pandemic and the way in which it has influenced the abitudini degli appassionati di cinema, dall'altra allo straordinario success of the già citato Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has incassato 1.37 miliardi of dollari to livello internazionale e si è imposto come il film Sony di maggior successo di semper.
There were about Spider-Man four hundred films screened in the American exits during the year that has just ended, although in fact and absolute numbers were not lacking but people have decided to go to the exits only to watch certain films.
Give aside it is certainly positive that cinemas have been rewarded after a long time and the quarantine, but at the same time with they are also quite noble productions that have flopped.
In short, something has certainly changed in the habits of fans but we do not know anchored when it will be possible an eventual return to a previous situation, which could now be irrecoverable.
YoshiKiller2S told SyFy Wire that he bought a 35mm film copy of the teaser on eBay, which he was looking for after reading on the OriginalTrilogy website that in 2013 someone wanted one to preserve it. When he finally got hold of it, he began the scanning process at a specialty store in Toronto to be able to work with digital video files. AI has demonstrated its ability to improve the quality of old videos, but nothing like scanning the film to extract all the original detail.
Once he had it, YoshiKiller2S contacted Nutelu, a friend who does remastering and restorations of old content, and sent him the videos to make them color correction with Sony Vegas Pro. They were trying to eliminate a green tint that had appeared as a result of the scanning process .
Another OriginalTrilogy user, UK.08, sent him a better audio track than the one on the roll of film, and he just had to sync it up. RU.08 had it from a DVD copy of the trailer, so it was already digitized.
The result, as can be seen in the inserted YouTube video, is spectacular, maintaining the analog look and detail. It looks better than many trailers that even today are uploaded in 1080p, and as YoshiKiller2S himself said, it is a shame that what was seen in the teaser did not reach the theatrical version of the film (or some special edition in DVD or Blu-Ray). Not only is it a perfect introduction to Spider-Man's New York, but it uses an iconic element like the towers to add a ton of tension to an action scene.
