    And is that planned to be an exclusive for a certain amount of time, like Avatar with Panasonic, eventually to go into general release?

    I have no information that suggests it will be like AVATAR at all. In fact, it seems likely that PS3 download may be the only way to get this classic 3D movie.

    (Well, they did have "Spooks" but it disappeared after a while, along with all the 3Net episodes of "The Qube", and the Film Board of Canada shorts.)
    Well, get it for the Blu3D player, the streaming Netflix/Vudu apps, and the 3D Playstation games, then. :D

    Bravo Universal for including Creature in 3D on the box set, which were NOT the expectations.

    I'll thank them as soon as I see that they're giving us the correct aspect ratio.

    Which should be 2.00:1, correct? What where the DVDs?

    Ouch.

    Well, unlike Johnny Guitar, this one at least appears to be well known around the internet as being 2.00:1, from imdb.com to blu-ray.com's listing. One has to think Universal knows this by now, no?

    One learns to take nothing for granted in this industry.

    The early black and white widescreen films from Universal were marked for 1.85:1. According to Exhibitor, that's the ratio for CREATURE.

    Ah. Well, here's hoping Universal gets it right!

    The 2006 DVD release was 1.33:1 but lets hope the Blu-ray is 1.85:1.

    CREATURE has not been seen in widescreen since the original theatrical release.

    It's high time to correct this oversight, Universal!
    I don't know if anyone over there is paying enough attention, but at least we have a 16:9 video format in our favor- we may finally get a proper release inadvertently.

    But why is that? Or have we already been down this road, and I need to pay attention? (Feel free to just point me to a link.)

    I guess the question is: Why is that, with regard to not only Creature, but Dial M, and probably more? Oh yeah, Hondo. Is it somehow related to them having been 3D?

    It has nothing to do with 3-D. It's the fact that they are protected for 1.37:1 and that's how TV, repertory screenings and home video has released them. Other than theatrical, we lived in a 4x3 world for many years.
    So far as repertory, nobody did their homework.

    Yes, I saw Dial M for Murder in dual-projection 3D at the Film Forum in NYC years ago and it was 1.33:1. It looked fine to me at the time. For home use I would like it to fill my TV screen so 1.85:1 would be fine.
