Indeed Christie flew the pair of projectors that was used in the grading suite around the world. First to a demo at IBC 2016.Then a full length screening at NYC Film Festival (world premier) a screening in London, one in Singapore?, and I believe one in China, Hong Kong or Shanghai, I don't remember what I heared.

Terminator 2 is one of the best movies I saw so far in my live.

I cannot remember how many times in how many versions I watch it but I think more than 10 times for sure.
I remember that I had a Laser Disc Import from Japan that had a for Laser Disc very rare Anamorphic NTSC Version on!

So I was very impatient to see this new scanned and mastered Terminator 2 UHD and 3D BD.

A short look yesterday show for the 3D BD a very good picture quality but a big surprise I see some 2D to 3D artefacts that I have never see from such a big movie and I really wonder how this can happen when James Cameron did it?
Normally his name is a guaranty for a super good picture quality like for sample the super good Titanic 2D to 3D conversion.

We will watch the whole movie in 3D BD possible later today or over the weekend and let’s see if there is beside the bugs I have seen in the opening sequence other 3D bugs as well inside.
Beside this 2D to 3D Bugs the quality is outstanding and show a much better picture compare to all old other versions that show this movie see also the pictures down.
I never thing that I can see T2 in this quality in my live as all versions that are till today out not show a good picture quality but now this change.

So it was a surprise to me how good it looks but more than the 3D BD surprise me the UHD Version as I thought that the original Super35mm Film not contains much more than just 2K resolution.
So I expect a good 3D BD but doubt that the UHD Version are can show more.
This UHD Disc was the proof that it is possible and that S35mm Film can have more than 2K inside as compare to the 3D BD it show an even better picture quality.
More details are visible in some sequences and better color and HDR.
UHD version was a bit dim from my taste and strange some parts that should show a full black show not a full black so not sure if there was a near black bug inside as some other UHD Disc have.
Also what is a bit strange that normally the OPPO UHD Player 203 show when you hit the Info bottom for 2 to 3 sec. a detailed  information list.
In the section where the player show normally min. and max. nit was nothing inside at all!
This was the first UHD Disc I have seen that not show there any data.
Not sure what cause it and bad I can see this info.
At least the Oppo show in the beginning the HDR 10 Logo.

Will report when I have news and may there are other reader here that had this new version and like to report as well.

Just watch the whole T2 3D BD tonight.

WOW the best Version I have seen in my live.
Beside some minor 2D to 3D bugs I report already I not see any more big bugs.
I have ask my Family if they saw something but no one saw any bug :)
So we all enjoy the movie a lot even if we saw this movie many times.

3D Version was as I post very bright and show a very nice compare to all other versions
more detailed picture with better color less noise and yes first time 3D.

This will be likely my new Screen build from the V6 XXL Screen Material.

I found some very interesting things about this screen material but this is so hot that I can not  talk about it since I figure out if what cause what I found.
This can take some time.

I still have hope I have this Screen install till Christmas "this year"  :)

Looking at your pictures of T2 comparing the new transfer to the old is showing a big improvement. I will get this title based on your review.

 Looks like you are making some changes to your cinema, keep us posted on the progress of your screen installation.

I just screened Valerian, the PQ is outstanding with plenty of neon colors. A perfect title to show off the wide color gamut of an RGB laser projector.

I don’t know what version you saw but guess the UHD Version as you say that color looks so good.

I will get Valerian in 3D BD and UHD today and will for sure watch it over the weekend.

Im sorry, yes it was the UHD version. This movie reminds me of "The Fifth Element" just as the soundtrack of Lucy brought back memories of "The Fifth Element"...I wonder why:)

I check Valerian UHD Disc 2D and 3D BD today and shot some high resolution 4K Pictures.
All of them are real Screenshots from the Screen with a 50MP Canon Full Frame Camera in 8K down covert to 4K for posting.

I read many times in IMDb under "See full technical specs" that the Cinematographic Process was 2K and I wonder many times why when I compare BD 2D or 3D Version to a UHD the UHD show more details like Valerian and many other movies.
I doubt since long time that it was always the right info there.
Anyway watch the picture in full 4K and see for yourself.

What was also nice that even the computer animated Parts show more details see the closeup.

You can really see the difference between the UHD and BD in your last two pictures when watching full screen. The colors are also very nice in this movie. Eye candy if you have an RGB laser projector like the Barco Thor:)

We just see the 3D BD version of Valerian.

A nice interesting movie as you say with a very colorful picture.
The 3D BD was a good quality 3D BD and looks nice.

Direct after the 3D BD version I watch with my kids some may 10 min. from the UHD Version.
Well the color was visible much better resolution was better with a lot more texture and HDR on top hard to say
witch version is the better one when watching it with the Barco Thor.
My guess is that most Projectors that have a much dimmer far less good 3D Picture than the Barco Thor it is likely better way to watch the 4K UHD Version.
