Charly May Be Released March 15th
Mon, October 18, 2004
It is now apparent that Charly has definitely been delayed. It was originally scheduled to be released on October 19th, (that’s tomorrow) in a Full Screen only version, but the online retailers have changed it’s release date. Most of the online DVD retailers are saying that Charly will be released on March 15th, 2005. But Amazon says the release date has yet to be announced, so the new date can not yet be confirmed.
The real reason for the delay is unknown at this point. My source has told me that people involved in the production of the film were notified that it was going to be pan & scan, and that they weren’t happy about it. Hopefully their involvement with the film is important enough to get the Studio heads at MGM to come to their senses and release the film in it’s proper aspect ratio. I will keep you posted if any official information comes out.

Fri, October 8, 2004
I am happy to announce that Widescreen Advocate is expanding it’s content. Jeffrey Forner, a friend of mine, has generously created an Advanced Widescreen/OAR Primer for the site. His primer not only covers letterboxing, but it also covers aspect ratios, open matte/Super 35, and even 16×9 televisions. Please take a few minutes to read our new Advanced Widescreen/OAR Primer. I would also like to thank Jeff for his efforts.
