So I was watching arrival and I got to the part where they are approaching the spaceship and I thought...why does this footage look so muddy? It looks gray and kind of muddy. It almost looks like they dropped the log footage into the edit without a color correct.
Obviously it's not quite as bad as all that, but I was looking at the trailer and found the same shot. Now THAT looks like how I would expect it to look. What's going on here? Is it just that when they released the trailer they hadn't finished the grade yet? You would think it would be easy enough for them to just grade the shots in the trailer how they were going to be graded for the final film. Also, is it just me that thinks the trailer looks better? I'm confused. What do you think?
