At the risk of embarrassing myself (I'm not sure of the best or appropriate place to post this), and also knowing that this is something controlled by the studios, making my suggestion nigh meaningless:

I simply want to express my deep desire for a 4k HDR version of the film's colour timing. It's such a stunning picture. Having just watched both Fargo and The Big Lebowski in HDR this past weekend, I can't get thinking about OBWAT out of my mind.

There is no chance of a 4K version (taken from the original negative) and I don't think it would look 'right' if there were one. The film was finished in a 1.8K resolution on a Virtual Data Cine machine. That was part of the 'look' and to go back to the original negative, if it even exists, and use updated technology would, in my mind, create another film altogether.
