Seeing as the other mockups are old Blu-ray art (not even posters!), FilmArena will most likely use whatever new art Fox will make for their new standard UHD releases.

Why? White is still a colour.
Yes, true, but I don't think this is white - probably either silver or grey . . . still, green is the colour usually associated with releases of the first "Alien" ...

.... with this grey/silver on black more associated with the collections:-

On the other hand, they've used a touch of green on their COVENANT steelbook so maybe that's why they've gone with this particular colour scheme for ALIEN 1:-

The steelbook is fine

I hear mantalab might be doing these as well ;)
Manta also doing these is not as appealing as it first sounds.
There are SO MANY films that Manta could get that would provide them a unique status.
Why our beloved Premium retailers feel the need for "us too!" status is beyond me...:stop:

Well IIRC, Manta commissioned illustrations for each movie in the franchise to use on their slips or SteelBooks. But with the Fox/Disney deal and contract stuff happening in China, may very well be delayed a long while. Probably until the rest of the franchise is available in UHD which is apparently years away anyway.

Hey there @C.C. 95 ! I fully understand what you and @TheJoker mean but I personally would prefer an action scene that includes the crew.
Remember the scene where the Alien baby first pops out and the crew were standing around?
Now, how about THAT for an inside cover?
Terrified, WTF faces, covered in blood, from everybody clustered together.
That's something I wish the suits at these decision making meetings would consider....:)

Not a bad idea, @Grendel.:thumbs:
The nice thing is - it is really easy to replace the inside art once you know how!:thumbs:
I like some nice inside artwork - but I don't really get my knickers in a twist over inside art.
I can't, however, change the OUTSIDE art! So I save my spleen venting for that!
