Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters and no background noise.
Most of the magic of cinema comes from sound. It’s an often unnoticed component, partly because it’s working so well. However, when not employed correctly, it could be disastrous.
IMAX, which boasts about their state-of-the art sound technology, recently put their money where their mouth is and accidentally released a trailer for The Mummy with the wrong sound. What did that mean exactly, well, they forgot the background noise. So every time Tom Cruise screams, it is completely isolated and completely hilarious.
The accidental IMAX upload of The Mummy trailer without sound effects is amazing and this Tom Cruise screen is DEFINITELY the best part pic.twitter.com/IdDgZSn1tg— Ryan Broderick (@broderick) December 20, 2016
Please release the movie like this, IMAX.
