The original theatrical poster was printed on foil, the outside border and inside the “A” were bare foil, so that’s probably being faithfully recreated on this steelbook.

Does make one paranoid if you remember the old days of "sticker books" :wow:
Not so old days too . . . you'll remember that black metal wave with the stickers from the end of last year in Spain.

I suppose it's an OK image and from the most common of the movie's posters ...

... which is mentioned in listings as "printed on silver foil for ultra impact" but I agree that the backing material looks to me more like Mylar - the same material used for helium balloons etc. ...

... and that weird silver strip down the right side will surely have no place on the steelbook.

With the light source behind them at least they got the shadows right . . . different to the Amaray slipcover artwork where the shadows from the girls are all but eliminated but the unique shininess associated with parts of the original poster isn't:-

Following on from the look of the original poster the silver continues on to the spine:-

Another looking to me a bit 'Letraset' transfers style (like AVENGER: ENDGAME) but at least here the colours look great perfectly replicating the original poster.

It has a gloss finish! Exposed metal looks great. Very good metallic effects; it all pops really well and photos don’t do it justice. Only solid pink color on the inside sadly but that’s the usual for Sony catalog steelbooks now.

I didn’t like the border either until I saw it in person. And the new 4K presentation is stunning!
