Just curious if I'm missing something... does anyone know of a good source for D-cinema trailers (or just a good source in general from the studios) for older trailers?

This month my theater will be running Fight Club, Starship Troopers, and American Psycho. It would be great to have a nice copy of the trailers to run before our feature.

I know, I know, these can be found on the DVD's or Blu-ray's for the most part, however it's generally in 480i quality, if it's on the disc at all. (The Starship Troopers Blu-ray, for example, has no trailer for the actual film on it.)

I'd appreciate any suggestions!

I would very much like to know the same , because in two-and-a-half years of showing digital re-releases we've received a total of one digital trailer (the original UK trailer for LABYRINTH).

It is of course up to the distributor to provide such material and they just don't seem to have much interested in doing so.

We rely mainly on 35mm trailers that we happen to still have or can find around the place... which can be annoying because they often look better than the digital transfer.

Here in the UK, for some older releases I have been able to download trailers, from the likes of distubutors Park Circus for some older titles. Failing that using a DVD version or finding the best version I can find online, and using something like easy DCP to make my own.
