It seems to me that FOX had stopped using the "ENHANCED WIDESCREEN" banner...

    A look at their most recent releases and announced titles proves the claim.
    Aww,it's a pity.Those banner makes their discs look very special.

    I seem remember the days when people commended Buena Vista for removing their "WIDESCREEN" banner from DVD covers. [​IMG]

    I think the 'Enhanced Widescreen' banner is mostly for non-special editions. Most of what they've announced recently, POTA, Moulin Rouge, M*A*S*H are all special editions, so I don't see where they've given up on it altogether.

    I always thought that the "Enhanced Widescreen" banner was used to distinguish movies that had been released earlier without anamorphic transfers from the ones that replaced it. And since Fox has adopted an all anamorphic all the time policy, it seems unnecessary to spell out the "Enhanced" part.

    At the beginning of Dave's Studio Day, Peter Staddon (Fox) was showing off a gimme DVD they are releasing for the Christmas selling season. This disc (which he said would be available "everywhere") not only includes lots of scenes from Fox product but has a large section on widescreen and anamorphic. In fact, most of the material was from The Digital Bits' anamorphic/widescreen guide.

    Did I mention that Peter Staddon is my personal DVD Messiah? That should be his title at FOX - DVD Messiah. Just thought I'd share : )
