Rumour has it, the blu-ray has no black bars on top & bottom Can't Post

The Hobbit was shot in a way that it could be cropped to fill an IMAX screen. Apparently, because an IMAX screen is almost the same shape as a TV, they've decided to put the IMAX-cropped version on the Blu-Ray (or maybe just the 3D Blu-Ray?) to fill your TV too! If you're wondering what the result might look like. Here's some clips WB have uploaded from the Blu-Ray!

Note: This isn't the WRONG aspect ratio, it's just the IMAX version. The film was made to work in both ways.
