Back during The Incredibles 2 theatrical run, certain scenes contained strong flashing lights. This decision ended up in people suffering from seizures while watching the movie. When the film was released on DVD and Blu-ray, the flashing lights were heavily toned down.
I sadly didn’t get a chance to see this in theaters so I started recreating the flashing lights for the scenes so that I could see it how it was supposed to be seen, or as close as I can get. When I was about 80% done on the first version of this recreation, I stumbled onto the Star Wars 4K77 trailer and checked out the forums. I then decided to scrap what I had, switch to a 2k version sourced from an SDR 4k version, and get to work so I could release it to the public so the theatrical version was available to see it in high definition.
Information about Incredibles 2 theatrical release and why the changed it, provided by CatBus:
There was a warning displayed before the film when I saw it, but apparently, it was not in the film provided by the studio but was added afterward by the theatres. Even with the warning, late-arrivers could easily have missed it with very serious consequences. I think it’s surprising that a big-budget film even made it to screens looking like that at all. A film that could potentially injure a viewer, where all the lawyers on vacation that week or something?

Edit 13/2/2019: I have finally got a high-quality version of this project released. Look for it on sharemania. Thank you for being patient with the project. It is currently in v2.3, and it looks fairly close to the original from what I’ve gathered from the trailer and a cam copy. I really hope everyone enjoys this release. The only major issue that I have seen is gradient banding, but that was present in the source I used. I didn’t notice it until I was working with v2.2.
Here is the comparison video between the 4K Blu-Ray and v2.0 of this project: https://vimeo.com/312985927
Once again, look for it on sharemania. Thank you for being patient! 😃
