Downton abbey faster?

Hi,

We have noticed that the film Downton Abbey is faster than it should so it results on all voices pitch higher (it's funny to hear some actors!).

The runtime on nowtv is 1h57min but it should be 2h3m?

Thanks!

Hi @Downtown 

 

Thank you for your message. This has been bought up before.

 

Due the production of movie originated, the data conversion from US frame rate of NTSC (24fps) to Europe Frame rate of PAL (25fps), plus this effect can be vary in other factors, such as different made/model of devices/TV.

We are having the same problem with the Downton Abbey film. It is very annoying, I've never come across this problem with any other film!

Why is a UK-originated movie suffering from a US-originated problem?

It doesn't matter that it's a British film. It has been filmed on stock film at 24fps (theatrical production) but is being displayed at 25fps.

 

I'll hazard a guess that they've been supplied with the theatrical copy and not the retail dvd which has been converted and pitch shifted.
