Made a regrade using HDTV as source; why? Because, even if it has lower quality than BD, it has bigger frame size in the first part of the movie; it could also be used just for the first part, where the frame size is bigger, though…
Comparison: HDTV (DVD colors), BD 2009, regrade
Comparison of the whole movie:

This is good!
But can we explore this turquoise tint I did a quick test and here is the result.
50.44 - 4.62%
88.99 - 5.54%
232.25 - 6.08%
Saturation = -31.76
Contrast = -1.18%
Gain = 17.65%
Red = 18.82%
Green = 29.41%
Blue = 15.29%
Red = -18.82%
Green = -3.53%
Blue = 11.76%
Don’t know if anyone agrees with the turquise tint but I definitely think there is something in it. Basically I remember it being like a turqoise look on TV or something and those pictures also have the Turqoise look.
Not saying you should do this at all… But I wonder if there is any agreement on the turqoise as nobody seems to register the possible likely hood it was tinted differently in cinema than home media. Well I made a case for it. Hope somone agrees?
But still Andrea your Regrade looks really good. I am not saying the settings I used are right either but It might be a pointer towards getting it looking right somewhat?
