As the new trailer for the new Batman 2020 is creating a fresh wave of buzz, we’ve been receiving a ton of enquiries for a tutorial on recreating a similar grade inside Premiere Pro and Davinci Resolve. While this might not be the final look of the movie, but the overall muted palette is intriguing enough for anyone to try it in their own short film.

In our case, we have used Medland LUT from our Daytime category to mimic the Color Palette of The Batman 2021 trailer. This LUT is a part of our Ultimate Colorist Toolkit 2.0. You can find the free LUTs along with our Ultimate Colorist Toolkit towards the end of this blog. We modified our LUT to replicate the Color Pattern of the Batman 2022 trailer and renamed our LUT as “The Batman 2022 LUT”.
