This is some bad news for Eyes Wide Shut fans.

In a story from The Digital Bits, it seems that there was some confusion about the new Warner Bros. release of this film. It was thought that the Eyes Wide Shut - Special Edition would contain both the Unrated and Theatrical versions of this film.

In a statement from Warner Bros. this appears to not be the case:

"On October 23, 2007, WHV released the Special Edition of Eyes Wide Shut on standard definition DVD, and on HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc, and as part of the 6-Title Stanley Kubrick Collection. It may be that some members of the press were inadvertently informed that the Special Edition release of Eyes Wide Shut included both the rated and unrated versions of the film and/or only the rated version of the film. In addition, some initially shipped product also was inadvertently labeled as containing both the rated and unrated versions of the film. The Special Edition release of Eyes Wide Shut contains only the unrated version of the film. WHV has taken steps to correct any possible misunderstanding in the marketplace by affixing to the packaging stickers stating "This package contains ONLY the Unrated Version of Eyes Wide Shut." and "Not Rated: Includes Unrated Version Only.""

However, if you bought the 2001 DVD release of Eyes Wide Shut then you do have the Theatrical version.
