Restoration
THE FRIGHTENERS has been exclusively restored by Turbine and is presented in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The original 35mm negative was scanned in 4K resolution at Universal Post, USA. LSP Medien restored the scan in 4K in Germany and graded it in HDR/Dolby Vision in consultation with Peter Jackson. In New Zealand, Peter Jackson approved this restoration.

Dolby Atmos Mix
The Dolby Atmos mix was created based on the original Director’s Cut ProTools project. This allowed dialogue, music and effects to be re-embedded into the 3D sound mix. Thus, an additional Dolby Atmos mix was created for the English language version.

Open Matte Version
The film was shot in the Super 35 format, exposing an image that contains more information at the top and bottom than the theatrical format matted to 2.35:1. This edition contains a widescreen version authorized by Peter Jackson in 1.78:1 and 16:9 respectively for the first time, showing more content at the top and bottom.

I didn't buy that French edition in a metal case earlier this year, because that digipack was worse, than my old DVD one, and rumors of UHD release been around for two years.
Arrow will probably release this as well, but I'm not sure their edition will be as good - here there's a beautiful digipack and disc art.

Love the Frighteners. Finally 4k. Gonna get both options!
Ordered both editions :)
Why? They're the same.
