Angel S2 widescreen in UK only - confirmed
Over at The R2 Project, they have posted confirmation of our story yesterday that Angel S2 may not be in widescreen in Region 4. The following paragraph is included in the UK press release:
Following the monstrous success of Angel Season 1 DVD, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have responded to the overwhelming demand for this amazing 6 disc set to be in widescreen. The UK will be the only country offering this release in the widescreen format and with a mouth watering array of special features this is a boxset you can really delve into.
It looks like Fox have finally listened to the demands of fans here in England - but unfortunately, the same cannot be said worldwide (presumably the demand for a widescreen release was much higher here in the UK). This seems a weird decision, as it means two separate DVD masters are required - one widescreen, on pan & scan. Whatever the reasons, the result is that here will be no cheap R4 option for UK fans, and international customers will have to put up with 4:3 (or import the UK version - an expensive option).
