The aspect ratio changes to a letterbox format at various times throughout the movie whenever it airs on television. Sometimes the changes occur within edits in a single scene or set piece, resulting in a very unusual viewing experience. It turns out HBO is airing the airplane edit for this movie instead of the theatrical cut. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts took to Twitter to ask HBO why they were not airing or streaming the original edit of this movie. Filmmakers often have to provide an airplane edit of a movie so that their films can properly be shown on such small screens. Vogt-Roberts says he switched to a letterbox format for some shots on the airplane edit so that it could maintain the same scope and size as the original, but on a smaller screen. Peter Atencio, the director of the Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key-starring comedy Keanu (2016), responded to Vogt-Roberts and revealed he faced a similar issue with HBO on his movie, one that has never been corrected. "HBO refuses to play anamorphic movies in the correct ratio unless they're contractually obligated to," he said. "Completely ridiculous that they don't do it, when even television commercials are letterboxed these days."


Bill Randa: Mark my words. There'll never be a more screwed up time in Washington. But we can't let it stop us.


When Randa inadvertently snaps a picture of the skull crawler before it kills him he flips the camera over and reacts to his impending doom however no camera from this era would had that feature like a smart phone or digital camera.
