I was wondering about the aspect ratio, too. It's the ONLY thing keeping me from buying what looks like an incredible deal. i'm hoping it's just a site gaff, but why would 20th century fox release abluray collection in an old TV format. i know that's not the original ration. The movies were filmed in Panavision, they should have a 2.35:1 ratio. Does anyone know?
Yup, I can testify to this -- all five films are in the proper 2.35:1 widescreen aspect-ratio. They've never been otherwise on Blu-Ray...in fact, to even put them out them at all in a cropped, "pan-and-scan" format would defeat the entire purpose of a high-definition BD release.
Someone at Amazon made a goof -- the 1970s TV series is the only Apes project to ever be shot and released in a native 1.33:1 (or 4:3) framing ratio.
