Hi guys. I really need to know the name of this font, even if it's made specifically for the movie. Here's the source to the video:

The font is based on an old metal font, Atlanta, designed by Carl Schraubstadter, Jr. for Central Type Foundry and patented October 19, 1886. US Design Patent D016946. He also did a normal-width version named Victoria.

Rick Mueller drew a free caps version called Atlantis. P22 Foundry has a commercial version name Victorian Gothic although changes to some characters were made.

In the case of the original as well as both digital fonts, they vary from your image in minor respects so the movie company made their own changes, plus it has been through PhotoShop.
