Never seen this but the steelbook art looks really nice. I’m not sure how I feel about the deluge of these PET slip covers at the moment; especially when they have integral art because if they become faded or come apart over time the steelbook is essentially ruined. with a super glossy finish there’s a risk of scratching too. All that aside, great looking steelbook.

I asked Zi about it, and here's what she said:

"So that artwork there was actually the preliminary mock-up Lionsgate showed me when we first started working on it. They didn’t want it as a photomanipulation and wanted someone to recreate it as an illustration so that’s what I did. What I’m thinking is that it’s currently a placeholder as we’re waiting for the final package to come together."

New design isn't bad but definitely inferior to the original that was shown. I'll be buying either.

Original artwork is clearly the winner by popular vote. However the second prototype is just the pet slip, i believe which is not so bad imo, as long as they keep the original steelbook design

Thanks for posting here.

I'm less panicky now.

Favourite movie, I definitely need this, and I assume it won't be easily available in Canada.

Just joined this site because I figured a group buy is my best bet. Haven't done one before and not entirely sure how it works but I'd definitely like in on this one. @apsmith21
