Please post the link to the trailer that you viewed and I will check it out as well.
I think it was someone else who mentioned a trailer. As for Prometheus, watch the movie's intro from the first second all the way through when the engineer drinks the liquid. There are tons of brightness pops, especially on the waterfall and sky as the camera approaches the engineer standing on the cliff, and massive pops on shots of his body and especially face.
I am downright shocked that you say you are not seeing them. What could the discrepancy be? Is it a matter of settings? I've been waiting for months for this issue to be fixed and with each update its like torture. Hearing you claim that the issue is fixed in this update when it plainly is not on my set is the ultimate tease.
EDIT: You didn't mention if you tested with Motion Judder Canceler on or off. I'll poke around my settings and see if I can come up with some settings that solve the pops. Also, I have not unlocked the Cal Day, Cal Night modes. Were you on one of those specific modes?
EDIT 2: Did some testing with different settings and the only way I could eliminate the 3D brightness pops was to have Dynamic Contrast set to High. Then, of course, the PQ was way blown out, so not an acceptable solution, IMHO.
I managed to eliminate some of the pops by cranking the Contrast to 100 and Brightness to 65, but then with those black levels I might as well buy an LCD.
Motion Judder Canceler had no affect on the pops either way.
Also, I saw you commented in your earlier post that you have neither buzz nor IR. I have buzz and IR on all three PN60F8500's I've owned, including my current one. In fact, after testing with Prometheus I see IR of the black bars on my screen as happens after I watch any letter-boxed content. Have you not seen this, as well?
