Children of Dune 5/20....anamorphic???

Amazon's website says it is.

I've looked over the box and it doesn't appear to be. Anybody open it yet to see?

Duh, the review on this site says it is anamorphic....but the review also says that "Currently, there are no plans to release a special edition with more extra features and a longer cut of the film, if one exists. "

Which is incorrect. Also, the picture of the cover is different.

Help?

Just because the box doesn't specifically say it's anamorphic doesn't mean much. A quick search of other e-tailers, as well as other threads on this board, say it is anamorphic.

It is anamorphic. I've watched half of it so far, and the picture quality is better than the first anamorphic release of Dune. Also, on my progressive scan DVD player, Children of Dune plays in FILM mode, where Dune would play in Video mode. CoD looks a lot better because of that.

I guess I didnt hear, but is there supposed to be a future release with more extras and a longer cut?

The box clearly says "16:9 Widescreen Edition". Doesn't that usually mean anamorphic??

Typically 16:9 Widescreen only refers to the aspect ratio. I think you were refering to the "Enhanced for 16x9 TV" anamorphic tag.

I didn't have a chance to watch much of the DVD yesterday, but I did flip through a few scenes and I found the picture and sound quality to be really, really good.
