    What in the world is going on??? Why couldn't they have offered both versions when they originally released it??!!!

    I think they have (belatedly) realized that not releasing a widescreen edition of the theatrical cut was a mistake. I'm sure there were a lot of lost sales because people wanted widescreen but didn't want to spring for the collector's edition.

    It is good that they are releasing the theatrical cut in Widescreen.
