i love this film, but this is what i don't get from a studio/money making perspective. sure, we're keyboard warrioring here on a special forum, but if you're the studio,another highly anticipated release down the drain with unacceptable artwork

- and steelbooks are a physical medium that you can still charge decent money for and people will buy it on release,
- and when this film is very popular and has had only one, poor steelbook relase before in the UK,
- and you want it to sell out at £24.99 retail and not be in the offers bin in 6 months' time at half that,
why do you not make a tiny bit more effort in design to ensure you get the best return?
exactly the same reason i passed on the American Gangster steel - cheap, badly photoshopped rejig of the original poster with the proportions wrong. or that 2-second-design-and-it-was-done Whiplash 4k steelbook. or that redundant Ferris Bueller cheap photoshop one with his body going through the side of the car.
don't mind if it's the original poster or something new, but make a goddamn effort. then you get my money. otherwise when i see a half-assed design that could have been better on a higher price item, it's this scenario:
Can't agree with you - about fans not liking it - as it's showing as Sold Out on the same day that it went up for pre-order . . . granted, limited to 1,000 in the UK must have had something to do with it.There is an apparent lack of love or respect for the material the art is being created for. Its evident in these unenthusiastic designs that actual fans simply don't like. I believe if you created something with a passion for the material, others would love it too. its obvious that steels like those you mentioned (i'l add Home Alone to that list) were just another design for just another film.
