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