Fathom Trailer and more videos
Here is the official trailer from Fathom events.
Last month Paramount+ released a fun video that features the Director’s Edition team discussing their fandom and their mission to bring director Robert Wise’s preferred cut of the film into the modern era.
And YouTube movie fan My moonization has put together a nice collection of a few scenes from the 4K/HDR versions of the theatrical version of TMP that was released in 2021 and the new Director’s Edition to compare. The video is available on YouTube in 4K and HDR with compatible displays, and is best viewed on such equipment.
