iTunes Movie Trailers App Updated for iPad Retina Display

Apple has updated their iTunes Movie Trailers App with support for the new iPad's Retina Display. The trailers app mirrors the content on Apple's own Movie Trailers site and offers a good showcase of the iPad's new screen.

Here's a screen capture from Pixar's upcoming movie Brave does show a lot of detail, though it's hard to say exactly which resolution Apple is streaming.

The app works on both Wi-Fi and LTE, though if you use LTE, you may find yourself using all of your LTE bandwidth allotment rather quickly. [Direct Link]

It's not Apple it's the movie studios.

I exported the raw of the trailers from the app through hdmi.

I tested 12 different trailers from all over the app.

All are 1080p high profile .264 5.1 with a bit rate of 4-7Mb/sec

The only difference I can find between the app and the downloadable trailers on apple's site is a rather large color adjustment. Not saying one is better than the other, but there is consistently a difference.

To confirm, they are all 1080p and the same quality as any other Apple trailer online/Apple TV 3 etc.

Trailers for what? There's hardly any decent HD movies on iTunes anyway. 720p or 1080p. I've just started buying BluRay disks again coz the HD content available on iTunes is so limited.
Considering the example in the post is for Brave, the answer obviously isn't "just iTunes movies". It's all movies.

EDIT: Just tried to download the app. Not available in the UK. Pity.

yeah this is stupid, I can watch trailers on my Apple TV, I can go to trailers.apple.com and watch and download them, but I'm not allowed the Trailers App outside the US?

What does it have that we're not allowed to see in the UK or anywhere else in the world for that matter?

It doesn't look like its streaming properly. The graphics and artwork look amazing, and the trailers look incredible for ~5seconds -- then the screen flickers to black and it switches over to a very low quality stream. I tried 8 trailers and they all did the exact same thing.

I'm on my home WIFI, and speed shows I'm getting 21mbps down right now, So I dont think that is the problem.
That *is* the problem. Same thing happened to me, you can watch what happens - watch the bar showing where the play is at, you can see it buffer ahead, and then eat that buffer, and then it switches. You can turn that off and make it pause to buffer instead, the settings are in the general iPad Settings app.

I don't understand what you're saying.

The article states that they have updated the "iTunes Movie Trailers App".
What he's saying is, Pixar's "Brave" is a movie coming out this summer in theaters, it is not on iTunes. So the fact that this article is showing a screenshot of the new app showing a movie that's not on iTunes, means it's not an app just for showing movies that are available in HD on iTunes, but all movie trailers.
