Hello, I was curious if anyone had this in their possession? I’ve been hunting this down for a while, and sadly haven’t been able to find it. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Maybe? I’m somewhat new to this, so I apologize if i’m not using the correct terminology, but I’ve seen pictures of an “open matte” version that shows stuff like boom mics, the motion sensors, parts of the set; etc.

The IAR (Intended Aspect Ratio) was 1.85; the 1.78:1 version shown on HDTV has a bit more image on top and bottom; the 1.33:1 fullscreen DVD has much more image on top and bottom on most shots, while loosing some on left and/or right side; but only the original film frame was full open matte, containing the whole 1.85:1 width, plus more on top and bottom - sometimes not intended parts, too, hence boom mics etc, that you will never see on any official versions.

No, I know that. But there is a version out there with this stuff. I’ve seen a few places I could get it, but typically the…uh…way to get it takes a few days.
