Hi-Def Ninja Exclusive video:

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before and is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.

I have not seen it yet, but I'm a fan Linklater & Tomer Hanuka's artwork. Groundbreaking film for sure. I'm really intrigued with variant runs of steelbooks like they do with prints. :)

I'm confused by the term "variant edition". I hope that doesn't mean that Mondo will start releasing two colour schemes for each SteelBook like they do with their prints -- one regular, one variant.

I guess I'll wait for the official announcement tomorrow!
This movie is currently one of the best of the year and holds a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. I personally think that this movie does not deserve a Mondo steelbook release however, just my opinion.

I guess we'll find out at the announcement, but maybe by "variant edition" it means that they have chosen the variant edition of the poster as the artwork rather than the regular release edition, instead of meaning there is a regular and a variant edition of the steel? Either way that is definitely a variant edition of the Mondo poster anyway, the regular version has more colour and a green background behind his face.
