Yeah, this is awful. If they're insistent on making "Pop Art" for this particular movie, why not at least try to do it in the style of the original graphic novel?

Synopsis: Acclaimed Swedish horror film based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the screenplay for the film. Oskar (Kare Hedebrant) is a sensitive, fragile, 12-year-old boy, living in the suburbs of Stockholm in the early 1980s, who is bullied at school and spends his nights dreaming of revenge and rehearsing knife attacks in the courtyard behind his apartment building. There he meets his new next-door neighbour Eli (Lina Leandersson), a mysterious girl of his own age who turns out to be a vampire. With Eli on his side, Oskar is finally able to face up to the bullies who have made his life such a misery, but Eli's unquenchable thirst for blood brings problems of its own.

Comments: NOTE: This is a Swedish language film. Previous releases have been region-free.

Theatrical Trailer


Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 7.1, AR 1.78:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

Synopsis: Derek Vinyard is dangerous, a coiled fury of hate who leads a neo-Nazi gang. But time and events start to change him. He reassesses his ways while doing time for manslaughter and emerges from prison eager to keep his younger brother (Edward Furlong) from falling victim to the thug cycle of violence and payback. It may be too late.

Weaving in and out of events past and present in Derek's life, American History X is revealing in its look at white-supremacist gangs and impassioned in its message that hatred and bigotry can be unlearned. Edward Norton (Fight Club, Pride and Glory) portrays Derek, giving a powerful, persuasive, Oscar®-nominated* performance.

Comments: Region-Coding -- although the spine has the WB logo, proceed with caution. The WB version is known to be region free but the Entertainment in Video version to be B (locked)

This is the same generic cover art that all previous releases have had.
They did not change this one to their latest trend because it was already bad enough.

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 7.1, AR 2.40:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

Synopsis: SEVEN DEADLY SINS, SEVEN WAYS TO DIE. Two Cops (Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman) track a brilliant and elusive killer who orchestrates a string of horrific murders, each kill targeting a practitioner of one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Gwyneth Paltrow also stars in this acclaimed thriller set in a dour, drizzly city sick with pain and blight. David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, The Social Network) guides the action which looks razor sharp and brutally clear on Blu-ray, as the improved sound and picture quality take you in to the heart of the horror. The suspense driven plot line is brought to life in dramatic detail and heart-stopping clarity, letting you feel the fear, and experience the thrilling twists in a whole new world of sin.

Comments: *All previous versions of this have been region free, no reason to believe this will change for this release. WOW - has been quite some time since they have listed a Steelbook with original art that is not Mondo, Pop Art, Coloring Book, Comic Book or any other disgusting look.

Nope, just a big fat spoiler instead.

Extras:

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.40:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

Synopsis: When The Iron Giant arrived in theaters in 1999, it was hailed as an "instant classic" by Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal, and the world soon learned that another "giant" had arrived as well: filmmaker Brad Bird, who made his stunning directorial debut with this film and has gone on to win two Oscars, as well as worldwide acclaim for his work on both animated and live-action features.

Winner of 9 Annie Awards, remastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition is the tale of an unlikely friendship between an alien robot from outer space (voiced by Vin Diesel) and a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal), his bedraggled mom (voiced by Jennifer Aniston), a paranoid government agent (voiced by Christopher McDonald), and a sympathetic beatnik (voiced by Harry Connick, Jr.) all conspire to turn Brad Bird's The Iron Giant into a gigantic, out-of-this-world adventure.

Comments: Although relatively new to the UK, the previous disc is region-free, no reason to believe this will be any different. Traditional cover art , no creative flair!
