The 2003 film, THE RECRUIT starring Al Pacino, is to be released on May 27. In theaters, this was a 'scope presentation (2.40, derived from a Super 35 negative) and looked very nice. But check out this ad copy from Touchstone regarding the DVD release:
Director's Original 1.78 Aspect Ratio Shows More of the Film Than Was Presented In Theaters.I'd be very curious to find out why the director wanted a 'scope theatrical release and a 1.78 video release. Roger Donaldson isn't exactly Kubrick, so I can't imagine what his reasoning is.
