Just picked up the game The Thing for my Xbox and received a promotional DVD of the movie as well. I already have the original collectors edition. Imagine my shock when I looked at the labelling on the disc which states it is a promo DVD and that is 2.35 widescreen and anamorphic! This is one of my favourite movies that I was dying to see get an anamorphic re-release! Well thinking this might be a labelling error I rushed home to check the disc out. Sure enough the disc is anamorphic and sports the advantages of the process. I'll do some more comparisons between the 2 discs to see how much of a difference there is. What a nice bonus - this is a movie I would have gladly rebought if there was an anamorphic re-release! And now I have it for free! The audio seems to be the same mix but I'll reserve judgement until I view it further. Can anyone else verify this?
