    I was trying to find out whether "Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines" will be FS or the correct 2.2:1 70MM ratio it was filmed in. Amazon list it as WS but Netflix list FS. Fox has no info. It comes out in March.

    I think Fox has committed to always provide an OAR version of their DVDs, even if a MAR version is released separately or in the same package. At least I remember Peter Staddon stating that here.

    It is anamorphic widescreen. I have done a screen capture of the image on my PC, and the dimensions (via Photoshop, isolating just the movie image) work out to be right at 2.20:1--just as it says on the packaging.

    Thats great. I saw this film in the Century 21 Cinerama theater when it came out and watching those old planes was a real treat.
