While it's true that John Krasinski is in the film, if there are only two names on the front cover, should he be one of them? (If it were a "Directed by" credit, that would be different, of course.)
I hope for it, but I doubt it. U'mania haven't released a wea steel since the quiet place. They may well release a premium wwa, but I'm super selective when buying wwa premiums though.. I've got 9 in total, 6 are FAC, and 7 were only about £30Hoping for a U'Mania fullslip in line with their gorgeous fullslip release for the first movie....
a great example of the last 12 months of WWA steelbook artwork. a period i hope will pass and, if it does, will be remembered as the 'That'll do" era.
is there something which prevents them from using available poster art? but no, that's not neceesary all the time, so if not doing that, why not encourage people to part with their (much increased price) money? isn't that just good sales at the end of the day? rather than it ending up in the regularly promoted discount bin - for months at a time?
i appreciate this is a site for physical media junkies rather than your average purchaser, but the success of the HDN Reel Synergy series (of which i am an enthusastic supporter) illustrates a well known fact - collectors will pay good money up front for good artwork and treatment. and will avoid bad artwork and weak design. like this one, which i will be missing at this price.
thanks, fair point. i'm sure we used to get poster art more regularly on WWAs - we definitely got better new designs - and of course better finishes. recent years have seen a lot of that replaced by pop art, 'single symbolic item from the film' art, lazy doodles, and stuff like this.Like you said. People will pay good money up front for good artwork...good artwork is usually the poster artwork and the rights to use the poster artwork are sold to the premium companies if they want to use it.
The best art isn't going to be wasted on WWA SteelBooks.
