Backcover of latest 3 discs edition

So the German Blu-ray from Platinum Cult / Digidreams is in an unknown aspect ratio in between 2.10 and 2.35... :(

The upcoming French release should be in a proper 2.35 cinemascope and will feature an interview with yours truly (in French).

Actually I found out that most widescreen DVD releases all have different aspect ratios, ranging from 2.20:1 to 2.39:1 (commonly referred as 2.35). By doing comparisons and calculating ratios, it seems that it was shot on film with 2.20 ratio but that does not mean this was the intended framing... The thing is 2.20 is usually for 70mm. Inquiring about this puzzling matter...


MOW was on the cover of "Pariscope" (the Parisian "Time Out") on its theatrical release (July 12, 1995)

Isn't this shitty Super-35?

That gives a 1.37:1 AR that can be cropped to anything a distributor sees fit.

Not this one, you can tell, and it was confirmed to me by Perry Lang, that they shot the movie in real anamorphic.

Maybe it was a not the same anamorphic lenses commonly used in Hollywood that the Thai or Hong Kong rental company provided.
