Night of the Comet/Actual specs known???

Does anyone know for sure yet whether this title is indeed widescreen and anamorphic WS??? I have read contradicting info on this title from it being FS to WS as listed on Amazon.com! Anyone that can verify what it truly is? I am not so sure I will be able to find this tuesday in BM store and do not want to order it until I am sure. Any info would be appreciated-

The first review of the DVD has appeared online at dvddrive-in.com. Specifications for the disc are: an anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer, audio in both stereo and mono, an additional Spanish-language mono track, and optional English and Spanish subtitles. The disc is also, as expected, a bare-bones release with no extras.
Night of the Comet is scheduled for Region 1 DVD release on 6 March 2007

It is indeed anamorphic!!!!!!! It's playing as I type...

But according to Fox/MGM you would never know by looking anywhere on the case. No wonder why everyone including all the etailers are confused.

The transfer apparently wasn't cleaned up but the source print carried over pretty nicely. A bit soft, but it looks pretty darn good on my crappy little 27" ... Shame though they couldn't even throw a trailer up.
