Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra restored 4K, Chabat badabada Chabat badabada

The film Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra by Alain Chabat (2002) will be released in theaters on July 5 in a remastered version in 4K and Dolby Atmos sound. Trailer made in Chabat. We savor.

The last trailer imagined by Alain Chabat was that of his Late Show on TF1, where he deliciously sketched the future King Charles III. This time, it's for Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, a cult film of French cinema shot in 2002 which largely infused pop culture and will be released in cinemas on July 5, at the single price of €5 per seat.

Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, visibly beautiful

Given the enthusiasm aroused by this re-release, a blow for that of Guillaume Canet who did not make an impression (it is the least we can say, see our review of Asterix and Obelix: l Empire of the Middle), but above all the opportunity to rediscover it in a version that promises to be visibly beautiful in terms of colors, precision, brilliance, relief and sound atmosphere.

It was also one of the first in France to have been shot in 35mm and post-produced digitally. The press release states: “To obtain the best possible quality, Pathé has chosen to start from the original unmounted negatives, spread over nearly 300 reels of film. Which is equivalent to redoing, not a simple restoration, but all the post-production of the film, 20 years later”. The restoration teams thus mixed traditional film restoration techniques and artificial intelligence to improve the definition of certain special effects and give the image even more brilliance and precision. All this under the leadership of Alain Chabat who, it seems, slipped in a few surprises…

Can't wait for 4K Ultra HD, right?

While waiting for July 5th, all you have to do is savor this trailer which is unlike any other (thank you!), extolling the merits of "Cine Boost", a miraculous product to wake up old reels of movie. Shattered Chabat. Can't wait, of course, for the 4K physical release that Pathé must concoct in secret in the process...
