I picked this up Tuesday.Looks and sounds great on BR.
The digital copy also looks great on the laptop.When I get a chance,I will put the digital copy on the desktop too. :)
EDIT/UPDATE : WB has limited the rights of the digital copy,for use on one PC only.I think I will leave it on the laptop,for the time being.

It did the same thing in the theater, correct? My understanding is that the portions that are shot in IMAX were puposely left in their OAR instead of converting them to the non-IMAX shots.


i saw it at imax and regular theater.

the AR at the regular theater was the same the entire movie. it did not change like in the imax.

I actually saw this in my local BB....there were 2 different versions of it as well. If you're into collectior's items (it comes with a figurine in a box...its a nice add.

If not, get the regular Blu Ray version and save your money for the next BD.

I've now watched it twice this week...and originally saw it in the commercial theatre when it came out.....I'm still noticing new content every time I see it....boy Heath did a heck of a job.

There were a couple Blu Ray reviews that came out today...here's one...its a keeper.

The 3 disc WALL-E sounds like it will have a digital copy disc included smiddy.
Just take the digital copy disc,if it is included,and insert it in the CD/DVD drive on your PC.
Most likely,the disc will automatically give instructions for installing on the PC.The instructions popped up automatically on my laptop during install of 'The Dark Knight' digital copy.
In regards to the digital copy disc,there should be some kind of an authorization key/code included.If you don't have that key/code,you won't be able to install the digital copy on the PC.
Another note of interest:
AFAIK,digital copies are limited to one PC.If you have more than one PC,choose whichever PC you want to view the digital copy on before installing it.

Yes...it looks and sounds good...I actually had it on my laptop Monday night when I had my 1-day trip to San Juan...a nice way to make a couple hours on the plane go by...

Yup...that's what I watched on the return flight! :D

I believe that the OP was referencing the one that does already come in the package.

A joy to watch on the plane this past Monday... :)

Guys, I have a Zune, so can it be put on that? One PC is ok with me, so long as I can transfer it to my Zune.
