It doesn't say Pan/Scan, this is what it says:


Standard 1.33:1 Color


Even though right above it, it says 16:9 1080i. So like I said, it's probably a typo.

It doesn't say "Pan & Scan". However, when the OAR is 1.85:1 the term:

Video:
Standard 1.33:1 Color

usually indicates Pan & Scan (cound just be unmasked though).

I'm sure it's a typo. The DVD case stated that the movie was 2.35:1 when it's actually (and always has been ) 1.85:1.

Apparently Fox (and/or DVD Empire) just can't figure out what this movie's ratio is from looking at it.
