    And by remastered, they probably mean upscaled. Adding HDR to this, the way it was lit and colorgraded (Very muted) just doesn't make sense without taking away the intended color palette IMO. And if you aren't turning color saturationg up to 11, then you are just adding the extra brightness information which again doesn't feel like much of a point. (Especially since OLED is the only display capable of truly displaying the full contrast of an HDR signal but is limited by brightness in common consumer sets. All other displays still only have a true native contrast ratio of 1k-7k:1)

    I really hope they went back and re-rendered the entire film in true 4k but I doubt it. I can't think of any examples besides maybe recent Disney movies that have actually done that.
    ST:Traitor of Mars for example is a pretty bad looking upscale, though that film in this case does make decent use of HDR due to the content of the film itself. (Which was already lit vividly. Unlike AC)
    But if that youtube video is a preview in SDR at 1080p of what they've done, I have low expectations.
    Then again even the 2k release of AC on regular BD looks upscaled at some times.

        Looks like they still won't be including Last Order? Guess I'll need to hang onto that LE DVD still...

          Not expecting this to look native by any means, but I'm hoping it is a worthy enough experience.
