    Warner is terrible about including original audio mixes.

    I saw a screening of the new 4K DCP last night. It looks excellent, very natural and film-like. Though anyone expecting it to look razor-sharp may be disappointed - there's an inherent softness to the photography. Interestingly, I'm pretty certain the sound was mono - I didn't notice any separation or surround activity. Maybe the disc will include the original mono mix.
