Amazon gets it wrong pretty often, so I wouldn't start a protest just yet. FWIW, DVDPlanet lists it as anamorphic.

I think Disney is pretty much the only studio that still releases some non-anamorphic discs.

Somehow i doubt a release like this would be non anamorphic.

Different studios tend to use the term "letterbox" with varying definitions. Not all of them strictly mean non-anamorphic.

......multiplied by the fact that different etailers use the term differently.

Some etailer list everything as letterbox and don't indicate a difference between anamorphic and nonanamorphic at all.

Amazon IS THE LAST PLACE I would look for definitive disc specs (esp. anamorphic description).
With that said those are the people I trust:

Even Disney has been anamorphic for years. The only way you could manage to get a non-amamorphic version of this release is if you buy a bootleg. There isn't a major studio that doesn't release everything anamorphic nowadays, even most Hong Kong films are anamorphic.

That's not true. Disney/Buena Vista continues to release non-anamorphic dvds. The most recent one that I can think of is The Ref which was released in March.

not to mention films not in OAR (full frame/P&S). Most recently just got burned on New York Stories....didn't know it was a full frame dvd until it came in the mail.

Probably not the best example. I would think that Robin Hood would get a little more attention then The Ref.....

Phewwww!!! The thread title scared me a bit. Thought I went through a time warp to 1999 or something. No way this is non-anamorphic. Once in a while an obscure catalog title is still released non-anamorphic. An SE of a fairly high profile title would never be released that way in 2003 by a major studio.

I wasn't comparing the two. I was just pointing out that Disney still releases non-anamorphic discs.

ok...

Thank you everyone

I look at amazon cause it's release dates are fairly accurate and they have everything listed so never bothered to need another site...If I see a problem there, I will try the sites you guys mentioned to compare (and then panic!) hehehe

Thanks again.

I was worried about the first posts in this thread until I followed the link and realized you were talking about the Costner movie, rather than Flynn. Not that that would be in any sort of widescreen...

well, I knew just looking at this title that it was bull... Warner has always been a big supporter of anamorphic widescreen so I would NEVER expect them to dump a MAJOR release on disc as non-anamorphic... just goes to show that you should always check more than one source before posting!
