(Enquiry) Spider-Man (2002) - Open-matte Film Restoration

I’d love to see it in open matte 35mm! I did find an open matte HDTV capture on some Russian site which is my favorite way to watch Spider-Man 2

I assume 16:9 open-matte? I’ve seen those Russian HDTV caps but yeah 16:9. Would be very cool to see 4:3 HD too, since it’s only available in SD atm via fullscreen edition DVDs.

(Enquiry) Spider-Man (2002) - Open-matte Film Restoration
Time

This thread isn’t a project initiation thread, just an enquiry.

Back in December last year, I saw the Spider-Man (2002) movie’s open-matte film reel being sold on eBay (can’t quite remember the price).

It’s gone now, of course, but I saved an image that was there on the eBay listing:

The listing’s name was “35MM FEATURE FILM: SPIDER-MAN (2002)” and I even still have a link to it from my browser history (but there’s nothing to see anymore): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35MM-FEATURE-FILM-SPIDER-MAN-2002-/302821956345

But yeah, I didn’t buy it, though I wish I could have. I was wondering, though, did anyone here happen to pick it up? Or was anyone aware of this particular sale and has any idea whether a fan restoration of it could be taking place?

Or, also, has a different open-matte 35mm film reel of Spider-Man (2002) been purchased by a community member here with the intention of a HD open-matte fanres release?

Had a go at colour correcting this.

I didn’t really use anything as reference though, except for taking a glimpse at the Blu-ray remaster and seeing the walls being blue and not brown-ish; and also skin having a bit more of its own tone, rather than looking plain white. It was very quick, and just experimenting, so by no means what I’m saying it should look like lol.

Also, yeah, I did DNR, not because I’m preferring it over keeping the grain and such, but just to go ahead and add another layer to the experiment.

But yeah, what is the best reference source for colour, of this movie? And do you guys think it’ll be impossible to have as much dark detail visible as the blu-rays, with this scan?


edit:
So I only now managed to get it into my preferred colouring tool, and found a different way to CC it. Much more naturl-looking imo and it does involve less subjective adjustment:

Though, yes, still without reference

This was quite an interesting watch (for noobs like myself).

Ah yes, my good friend AnimeAjay. If you check the tags of the video, you’ll see he included my name there…for certain reasons 😛

Yo, guys. How’s it groovin’.

I am willing to give my higher quality DBZ audio along with the original broadcast video cleaned up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH6z9O0TqJ0

On the other hand, if you would rather have me colour correct the whole series for everyone, to match the original broadcast video (minus, of course, the degradation it suffers of its own), I can do that.

Or, if you would rather have me colour correct to match the original cels, I can do that.
