TitleFormatOpeningSoundStudioNotes
Around The World In 80 Days (Re-Issue)Todd-AOApril 29 (USA)6-Track Dolby StereoWarner Bros.70mm engagement in Seattle, WA (and perhaps elsewhere) featured a shortened 140-min Dolby Stereo version. This re-issue version was reportedly blown-up from 35mm reduction element (which is why it is included on this list). Re-issued nationwide in 35mm.
Blue ThunderPanavisionMay 13 (USA)6-Track Dolby StereoColumbiaThe first of many John Badham movies released in 70mm.  Sneak preview with 70mm prints prior to release.  70mm trailers: “Krull,” “Breathless” and “Return Of The Jedi.”
BrainstormVariousSept 30 (USA)6-Track Dolby StereoMGM/UA100+ 70mm prints. Objective scenes shot in 35mm (1.66:1) -- subjective “brainstorm” scenes lensed in 65mm (2.20:1). Original prints (both 70mm & 35mm) featured the aspect ratio changes in the horizontal plane. The DVD changes them in the vertical plane, creating a viewing experience that makes little sense to those unfamiliar with the theatrical presentation. 70mm trailer: “Yentl.”

MahaanNAApril (India)6-Track StereoNA
Never Say Never AgainPanavisionOct 7 (USA)6-Track Dolby StereoWarner Bros.World Premiere: Oct 6 (Los Angeles).  A bogus James Bond movie for sure, but we’ll take anything that’s offered in 70mm!  70mm trailer: ‘Deal Of The Century.’
