I firmly believe the reason many studios want to release the full screen version, as opposed to the OAR version, is quite easily explainable. Dollars and cents. The studio executives are not morons. In fact, they are quite savvy in their attempts to make the largest possible profit (which is the reason why they make films in the first place). They have a clear agenda, PROFIT. At the present time, there are not many people who own a widescreen television, though sales are on the rise. But, as we all know, 16X9 televisions will be the norm in the not too distant future. Most network programming and sporting events will soon be in a 16X9 format (I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the sporting events). All those folks will soon buy the same films that they originally purchased in the full screen format, and they will repurchase those titles in the OAR to fill those 16X9 TV’s. Thus, increasing profits for titles that they have already sold. That's one of the reasons why I will never part with my laserdisc player. I really commend those that attempt to change the way these studios operate, especially with the recent Disney announcement that they are going full frame, but the studio executives have all anticipated this outcry from those that want their film presented in its original aspect ratio. Unfortunately, we are all in the minority on this issue. That’s just my insignificant opionion.
