    This from the Digital Bits makes me wonder... Is the theatrical version of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle only going to be available MAR?

    This seems to be happening alot lately. Artisan is doing the same thing with 'Boat Trip'. Not that I care about that film. And Dreamworks did it recently with 'Old School' (although the unrated us in both widescreen and fullscreen). To me this is pretty bad considering places like Wal-Mart will only stock the rated version, thus many people taking home a fullscreen DVD.

    Just ridiculous. Just make the movie available in OAR in all versions. Or, just give us a Superbit Deluxe right off the bat because we know it's coming.

    This is a somewhat stupid move; they seem to think that the enthusiasts who care about OAR will always buy the unrated version. It is like that in some cases...but not all.

    Well you (the collective "you," the royal "you") would have complained if they'd done what American Pie did, which was to release four versions

    Unrated Widescreen
    Unrated Fullscreen
    Rated Widescreen
    Rated Fulscreen

    Frankly I think Charlie did a wise thing releasing his angels in one two rather than four DVDs. It's tough enough hunting for the widescreen versions, I don't want to have to hunt through 3 versions I don't want to find the one I do.

    So I am correct in my understanding of what I wrote in my original post?

    Remember when we use to be able to trust this studio to do the right thing...? [​IMG]
