Alvin and the Chipmunks FS edition???

So I just got back from walmart, and my Alvin and the Chipmunks BD "FullScreen Edition" written on the top of the front cover.

I flip to the back, and it is "4 x 3," "pan-and-scan"

WTF is this?

an april fool's joke?

there's no point in having a FS edition of something made specifically for a WS TV.

Don't be surprised if we eventually get 16x9 "fullscreen" versions of 2.35:1 films.

I think the joke is that he actually looked at Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Can you post a picture of the back cover so I can see what you're talking about?

I remember seeing a Blu Disc being FS. Since I don't have a Blu player, I didn't pay much attention other then thinking it was strange that the BB flyer was advertising it as FS.

There's a possiblility for Blu-Ray disc to be 1.33:1...
The Wizard Of OZ is fullscreen.. I mean may going to be

but only to the old flicks.. I don't think they'll do it with alvin!
