Question Leaving Las Vegas - is this right?

I just got my copy of Leaving Las Vegas in from EzyDVD and I'm confused.

Everything that I've read before states that this is in 1:85 aspect ratio but the back of my box says 2:35 and my screen is displaying a 1:66 (almost filling the screen but with the side slightly chopped off)

Is this correct or is the Australian HD-DVD fucked up?

The movie was shot on Super16. It was matted to 1.85:1 in theaters, but home video editions have been 1.66:1 per the director.

Ok, thanks Josh.

I was really afraid that the Australian version was gimped or something.
