i see if i can do something first then reply u
and here it is...
if this is the effect ur looking for...
1: adjust the curves so as to bring out the max details while providing suitable contrast in photoshop first.
2: adjust the saturation and desaturate it a lil.
3: add a layer of black. set to a low opacity.
4: draw 2 black rectangles on top and bottom
i suggest that blue curve shld be adjusted till u get a stronger shade. cause mine not so strong i think

If you own a video editing software like APP(adobe premiere pro) or FCP(final cut pro) play around with the 3way colour correction settings.
from tiffenLow Contrast - Spreads light from highlights to darker areas; leaves bright areas bright; lowers contrast, mutes colors. Makes videos look more like film! Available in several grades.
Could this be the answer? if it is... then i think the filter rocks... bcuz in sch i did a few video work, trying to achieve this kind of cinematic "white balance" effect is quite a pain in post production especially from scene to scene where the lighting is different... and albeit trial-and-error, v tedious.
and yes u could use filters... but usually ppl do it in post edit. 1: incase u dun want the effect later on, u can always use the raw footage. one u add a filter, the lost colors are lost.
check out supernatural the series. they use the same color cast as shown in ur screeny. and i think they do it in post edit too cause i seen their gag reels.
maybe we should have a test, can someone get a standard pic and we try working to this cinematic feel on pp?
Another way to do it: Open a hue/sat adjustment layer and use the colorize option, with settings about like this ... then lower layer opacity. (I used 55%)
