R2 Ed Wood, Sir? One Layer or Two?

I'm currently on holiday in the homeland, the UK. Right now there are a lot of sales in the vein of "3 for 20".

Recently I picked up a UK copy of Ed Wood. That night, while looking at the back of the box, I was surprised to see that it proclaimed SINGLE LAYER FORMAT - for a two hour film with extras.

A day or two later, I came across Ed Wood in another sale - but on the back, this copy, although looking identical to the one I picked up, now claimed DUAL LAYER FORMAT.

Keeping my eyes open, I have found that both versions are knocking around, although apart from the layer designation, the discs look identical.

I think this is the only time I have ever seen a disc quietly available in two ways like this. If I had notice earlier, I would have picked up a dual layer copy, but how many people would have even noticed this?

on the cover of my UK ed wood R2 it says single layer. the disc itself is dual layered. guess it was a typo they corrected in a later pressing. can't go wrong either way then.
