Any Released Film Theatrically with 35mm adapter?

Hi...
I'm in process of making a feature that will be released theatrically, using HVX200. I just want to know is there any other film released theatrically using 35mm adapter (sgpro, m2, mini35 P+S, etc) than Danny Boyle's 28 DAYS LATER?

I've heard that it will soften the image as the date is being printed on film. If so, by using a heavy Digital Intermediate, will it help the from causing more degraded image.

Any opinion or suitable workflow?

You are misinformed. 28 Days Later never used a mini35. There have been no widely theatrically distributed films shot on any 35mm adapter.

But they use Canon XL1 and when I take a look at the Behind The Scene, they use XL1 with the modified attribute in front of the barrel and big mattebox. I assume it was P+S Technik product.

There is suppose to be a film coming to the big screen this summer...

The trailer is suppose to be played right before the new Nancy Drew movie...

They used an XL1 with the FD to EF adapter which gives the possibility of using EOS lenses. In those adapters light from the lens doesn't pass through a ground glass to create a 35mm illusion so they're not 35mm adapters.

They added a mattebox, of course.

Nowadays people tend to use experimental digital HD cinema cams before using 35mm adapters but there's another thread here talking about 4 movies for the UK TV using Sony XDCAM EX and Brevis. Those cams are not HVXs of course...

Farishad, you might want to search in imdb.com (using technical section). I found a bunch of movies were made using mini35 and some using Redrock M2. And actually one movie is using Brevis, which is 'Heart of Now', will be released in 2008. But whether they're transfered to film or not, I'm not sure...

Not quite even that. They simply used an Optex adapter and put a Canon EC and EJ lenses on it. Just goes to show that some people still think that story is more important than picture quality. ;)

Hmm... the trailer and all the stills have a mask over them... hiding vignetting and/or soft edges?

If you are talking about my thread. They were 4 short films shot using the JVC 201 and the Brevis with some shots on the sony xdcam hd, not the ex

Again, you are misinformed. They attached their own lenses straight to the bodies of the XL1's, rather than using inferior stock lenses. No P+S Technik product was used.
