Yeah, now were talkin'

I didn't even bother looking at it, and was planning on getting the R1 version down the track. I may just wait for the WS version in November. I'm in no rush, although it was a pretty cool movie, it's something I can wait to own.

Great little article. Finally someone realising that all that R4 customers are getting is the Full Frame release. I had to import the R2 (Widescreen) version. Which worked out well cause I had it two weeks early!

Great news.
It seems to be reeeally bad in Australia, since the P&S version apparently offers only a third of the original widescreen frame. :D

It's a Super 35 movie. The P&S offers additional image content above and beneath the 2.35:1 framing with some (greater or lesser) loss at the sides. That is, unless the Oz P&S differs from the Stateside one, in which case you can forget what I just said...

The other interesting sentence in that story is that a widescreen version is rumoured for the end of the year.
The article also speculates if this whole P&S only now, WS 6 months later strategy is $2Warner's attempt to workaround a Federal Court order stopping them from having differential pricing for rental/sell-through releases....
Either way, $2Warner have successfully developed the mid-set in me that "Warner=BAD", so I won't be buying any version of Harry Potter any time soon :frowning:
