little ugly I am not going to lie. But apparently the average consumer is so stupid that they would buy the blu-ray version when they only want the dvd. This should help...I guess

Well if thats the case then they might as well go all out and have a feature that kicks you in the balls and/or vagina. All the while it belittles you while your writhing in pain on the floor.

DVD? THIS. IS. BLU-RAY!

Kinda ugly but it's probably only a promo cover, at least I hope so

All the cover art that TheManRoom has posted in the past all ended up being the final design.

Yeah, that looks horrible. Thank god for custom covers. Luckily, I don't plan on buying those 2. Is this new for all BV releases?

Some movies are being released without the "swoosh" or the banner.

The Rookie for example.

Those are not final covers. I work for a media company as well and the marketing department adds huge, ugly type to promos sent to media outlets.
