What is the goal - the most accurate reproduction, like the producer meant it to be, or simply set up your system to give the best experience.
To me, I have actually not considered the "accurate" path to be something to strive for when it comes to low frequency reproduction for movies, and that is for a number of reasons.
I was trying to demonstrate differences in tactile feel caused by differences in sound field intensity, when one of the persons attending made the comment "..yes, different, but how is it meant to be..".
(Audiophiles are unfortunately very often more interested in how things has to be "right", like it is meant to be, rather than seeking the best experience..)
To me, that does not make much sense, as whatever makes the experience of that spaceship landing more physical and realistic, is the one I would choose, regardless of what the producer heard in the studio.
To make the reproduction "accurate", you must then mimic the situation in the studio - same frequency response, same playback level.
However, there are tricks you can do to make the experience different according to taste, and in many cases it will then be perceived as a better experience.
As an example - I am not sure I would want a 30Hz cut-off.
