Default Hd dvd problem

I recently just purchased the toshiba hd-a3 and it has the black box over the movie and one under. The movie is the Bourne Ultimatum. Is this how the movie was made to look like? Is there anyway to get the image the whole screen like some hd channels do? I'm connected by hdmi on a samsung 32 720p tv.


BTW guys i'm a total noob at this stuff. I spend hours trying to fix this but still can't get it.

Some movie's are enhanced for 16:9 (widescreen tvs) if the original aspect ratio is close to that, other's are in there true aspect (2:35:1), Although you may have leterboxing the effect isn't as drastic as a 4:3 tv. If you have a stretch function on your tv (usually labeled ASPECT on the remote then you can get ride of it, however most cases it will blow the video reducing resolution and possibly cutting off part of the image.
