Aspect ratio issues delay John Carpenter’s latest film The Ward…
The HCC news editor described this as “a real shock as Carpenter has always been a major proponent of Panavision-style 2.35:1 framing in his previous work.”
The difference can be seen by comparing grabs taken from the original trailer and the new Blu-ray.
Warner Home Video today contacted HCC to confirm it would be delaying the release date.
“The current Blu-ray and DVD configurations of The Ward are not in the preferred aspect ratio of Warner Home Video UK. In order to release The Ward in the theatrically shot aspect ratio of 2.35 we are moving the release date to October 10,” a Warner spokesperson said.
