Pulp Fiction is a Disney production - They have varying levels of separation and each subsidiary takes them on. Miramax/Pulp Fiction obviously being very extreme.

I dunno, I kinda like it more in some ways. It's kind of minimalist, but it does make sense as cover art, what with the human being a cave boy and all. The other cover was just a close-up of the main characters for the most part.

I'm wondering what the back cover will be, perhaps it would be the former front cover but more likely it will be a continuation of the minimalism.

From his posts, Krawk has a consistent dislike for any cover art that doesn't show the main characters' faces. Anything that focuses on a logo or symbol or an image from the film (much less something abstract), he doesn't care for.

For the most part, I go for something like the Movie Poster. I know Disney movies typically have about 15 different movie posters, yeah, mostly centered around the characters, but I would suspect in this case they probaby have one similar to what Zavvi is ending up with.
We've seen too many times people think they're getting creative and reinventing the wheel and then we wonder what the hell they were smoking.

Comparably speaking though, the USA Covers do show similarities to what Zavvi had started with:

Synopsis: Boyz 'n' the Hood is the critically acclaimed story of three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighbourhood. It is a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky's best friend Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond "The Hood." In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Laurence Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems the only recourse.

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook

Extras: NA

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.40:1, 50Gb disc

Synopsis: With a slash of his steely blade and the mark of a 'Z', he defends the weak and exploits and avenges the wrongs committed against them... It has been twenty years since Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) successfully fought Spanish oppression in Alta California as the legendary romantic hero Zorro. He transforms troubled bandit Alejandro (Antonio Banderas) into his successor, in order to stop the tyrannical Don Rafael Montero, who robbed him of his freedom, his wife, and his precious daughter Elena all those years ago. The Mask of Zorro follows Alejandro as he assumes de la Vega's mantle and embarks on a passionate journey of love and honor, tragedy and triumph in a swashbuckling epic of an adventure.
