Rediscover the Mythical World of NARNIA
on Blu-ray and DVD on April 8th
 
 
 
LOS ANGELES, CALIF (FEBRUARY 1, 2011) – Return to the magic and wonder of C.S. Lewis’ epic world in this third installment of the beloved The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy-adventure series when THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER sails into Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on April 8th. Imagination comes to life with stunning special effects that bring the vast oceans and sprawling landscapes to life. The release comes just in time for Easter, making the family favorite a perfect gift for kids of all ages.
 
Precocious siblings Lucy (Georgie Henley, The Chronicles of Narnia series) and Edmund Pevensie (Skandar Heynes, The Chronicles of Narnia series), along with their cousin Eustace (Will Poulter, Son of Rambow), are swallowed into a painting and transported back to Narnia. They join King Caspian (Ben Barnes, Dorian Gray) and a noble mouse named Reepicheep in a quest to rescue noble lords who had been lost fighting evil on another island. Aboard the magnificent ship The Dawn Treader, the courageous voyagers travel to mysterious islands, confront mystical creatures, and reunite with the Great Lion Aslan on a mission that tests their characters to determine the fate of Narnia itself!
 
Academy Award®-nominee Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List) is featured as the voice of Aslan the Lion, Simon Pegg (Mission Impossible III) as the voice of Reepicheep the Mouse, and Academy Award®-winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) appears in a cameo as Jadis the White Witch.
 
THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER be available on Blu-Ray for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada and on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada. Pre-book is February 23rd.

We have representatives from Fox on this forum, right?

If so, can someone from TCFHE please explain how or why the aspect ratio is 1.78:1 for the new blu-ray release when it was a scope presentation in the theaters (2.35/2.40:1)?!?

According to Matt H. in the other thread:

So it was done with the director's blessing, which will satisfy some.  Personally, I still think it was a bad decision, and would like to have the option to purchase the version that Apted original filmed and released in theaters.  But I guess that's pretty unlikely at this point.

Because the director is a f#$%ing idiot, who actually thinks that somone watching a film can be "intimate" with it if it fills their TV screen.

Worst of all, how can it look intimate when many shots are simply opened up?

Question: Was Steven Soderbergh a f#$%ing idiot when he had the DVD of The Good German released as 1.33:1 despite the theatrical exhibition being 1.78:1?


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Not that it makes any difference to your argument, but the theatrical aspect ratio of The Good German was 1.66:1

Wasn't that because many theaters (if not all) aren't able to project a 1.33:1 movie any more? That's not the case with 1.85:1 If a director wants an aspect ratio, then compose for that ratio and release it in theaters that way. Don't alter it for home video.
