    Did Galaxy Quest have 3 aspect ratios in the theaters, and will (or even should?) we ever see it on the home release?

    Exactly. If you were lucky enough to have a 720p TV in 2000 when Galaxy Quest came out on DVD, and they left the matting as is, it would have looked kinda like this. But for the rest of us who watched dvds on our good ol cathode ray tubes, it would have been more like this... People wonder...

    With various degrees of Left-Right black matte in the first 20 minutes.

    It probably is a better idea to have 2.39 all the way through anyway on home video. I mean the way this would have appeared on 35mm prints isn't the most tv friendly Look at all that black!

    Wrong. Panavision. If it was 1.85:1 theatrically during that bit it would have been cropped.

    Unless there's another movie titled "Galaxy Quest" I'm not aware of, the one made in 1999 was shot anamorphic all the way through. And that includes the 1.33:1 bit at the start.
