    Looks incredible!! I can't wait for December 18.
    So, is there any word on whether "Romeo + Juliet (SE)" will be released on the same date?

    Wow. That looks beautiful. I wonder how the "audio track for the visually impaired" will be. I am so looking forward to this title. These next couple of months are going to break me...

    I can't wait to hear the DTS track in my theater. We'll also get to see nasty Christina in the "Lady Marmalade" video. Yipeeeeee!

    It will be mine........oh yes.....it will be mine. [​IMG] They list the wrong AR however, but I am sure it's just a little mistake on their part.

    Back to the aspect ratio question again. I brought this up a while ago on another "Moulin Rouge" thread and I kept getting different responses and emails on this very subject. I saw this movie twice, and both times I saw it, it was in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. It was in different theaters too! Now I know the many folks said they saw it in 2.35:1 and I know some theaters are known to give at rats ass about proper framing, but now every sight that I have seen advertising it says it's 1.85:1!(IMDB say's 2.35:1)I also saw some other folks post that they saw it in a 1.85:1. This will be interesting to see when I get my hands on it myself.
    P.S. The trailer is in 1.85:1 here;

    I believe Mr Peter Staddon chimed in on the aspect ratio issue and confirmed that it would indeed be 2.35:1.

    Moulin Rouge was shot in 2.35:1 anamorphic, and was exhibited that way at its premiere engagement at the Ziegfeld in New York City. Oswald, maybe you live in one of those cities where the multiplexes show everything in the same aspect ratio?

    Actually Bryant I saw this movie in two different states. My job has me traveling all over the country and I get a chance to go to many different theaters. I saw this movie in Seattle, and in Los Angeles. The Seattle theater might of done something like that but the theater in Los Angeles was first class! They even brought the curtains in and out for the trailers! I hardly ever seen that. Also is the trailer for :Moulin Rogue" I provided then cropping the image?
    I did read your link and it clearly states that it was shot in 2.35:1 and I know Peter said so as well, but after seeing it twice in 1.85:1 and now seeing it advertised incorrectly all over the place it makes me wonder.

    Hi all,i'm new here but i'd like to throw my 2 cents.
    I work as a film projectionist in a theatre which currently shows Moulin Rouge and i can tell you all without a shadow of a doubt that this film is indeed presented in 2.35:1 ar(cinemascope).
    You can clearly see it while looking at the film itself that the picture is stretched,and the film needs to be projected through an anamoprhic lens to be displayed correctly.
