As many of you know, the in70mm.com web site maintains many 70mm and other large-format film lists. The in70mm.com web site is now home to the most comprehensive list of 70mm blow-up movies ever compiled. The newly posted list was the culmination of many years of combined research. There is no other list of this magnitude available in print or on the internet. We believe this is the most detailed list of its kind.
Mike Coate & Bill Kallay, masters of the blow-up lists

Our initial concentration and knowledge focused on U.S. releases. We have since begun to account for worldwide 70mm releases. There is still much work to be done in this area, however.

Nearly all of the titles have been verified as having had 70mm release prints. Any titles that were questionable (i.e. "Flash Gordon") have notes citing the source of information. Over the course of our research, we've found some helpful (and some not so helpful) leads as to whether certain movies played in 70mm somewhere in the world.
The list includes an alphabetical listing of titles within a given year, along with notations for the original photography process, the soundtrack format, the distributor, the earliest known release date and our favorite feature, a column for "special notes," where any specific or noteworthy information can be listed.

The list is considered a work-in-progress, so any information readers and 70mm fans may have is helpful. Check the In 70mm web site for updates as new information is added on a regular basis.

The 70mm Trailer Anomaly
By Brian Walters
Some of the excellent sounding 70mm trailer examples were for “The Fly“, “Commando“ and “Full Metal Jacket“, all wonderfully dynamic sounding trailers that far exceeded the sound of the feature presentations which were to be in 35mm stereo optical sound only. The picture quality of these trailers, even though only blow ups from 35mm, was also usually superior because of the improved brightness, picture stability and improved definition from longer focal length lenses employed with 70mm projection.

Grant's Blow-Up Blog
By Grant Lobban

Just in case there are any of you unfamiliar with the wonderful world of 70mm, a blow-up isn’t a print which ends its useful life by exploding in the projector. Sadly, most old 70mm copies, at least those printed before the early 1980s when more stable colour stocks were introduced, have a far less dramatic demise, they just fade away with everyone appearing in them ending up with a pink complexion.

A blow-up is the term used to describe a print made by enlarging, or “blowing-up”, smaller formats, usually those on 35mm film, but 70mm prints have also been derived from 16mm and even 8mm originals. When they first appeared, I was rather sniffy about them and didn’t consider them to be “proper” 70mm, which like to original Todd-AO process, has to be photographed on 65mm negative with the same large image area. I must say now, before we start, that although it wasn’t love at first sight, I did come to appreciate blow-ups later.

Grant's Blow-Up-Tagebuch
Von Grant Lobban
Mit "Blow-up" bezeichnet man eine 70mm Kopie, die durch optische Vergrößerung eines kleineren Formates, meistens 35mm, hergestellt wurde.
