Amazon UK - New AUJ DVD cover Can't Post

Wasn't really sure where to post this, but here it goes:

The folks at Amazon UK have 'updated' the cover art for the standard DVD set - with a more "menacing" Bilbo.

Not really sure about it - I think I'd rather prefer the original Bilbo closeup with Sting - seems to fit in more with the LoTR Theatrical DVD covers I have! Laugh

I like it [In reply to] Can't Post

...because it shows Thorin and Gandalf as well as Bilbo (I think the original just showed Bilbo?).

Thank you for posting it.

Something like this should have been the official poster. [In reply to] Can't Post

OMG the posters were terrible...

Sorry for beating a dead horse. Wink

That's pretty sweet [In reply to] Can't Post

I like how it shows the three main characters of the story. I wouldn't mind seeing this as an option here in the states.

Three main characters [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think you can describe this cover as depicting the "three main characters" when Sebastian isn't included.

dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

for a film thats supposedly about 13 dwarves, theres nothing that resembles a dwarf on that front cover in my eyes!

100% positive Bilbo's head is photoshopped [In reply to] Can't Post

In my first post to this thread I wrote about Bilbo's more "menacing" look - well, guess I was wrong since it's the exact same face and look as used in the first DVD cover: here

The powers of the mind ... incredible!

Completely agree! [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it looks way better than any of the posters we got (except the one of solely Bilbo).

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall and the bells in the steeple, too.
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird is popping out to say coo-coo (coo-coo, coo-coo).

So bad [In reply to] Can't Post

Bilbo looks like daniel radcliffe on the cover of the POA dvd and its a photoshopped head shot for sure...dwalin has his head cut off in half Crazy...the rocks on the top look like theyre form a miniature...thorins is from another picture and looks weird, like a stamp, just inserted there and Gandalf...ohh Gandalf...like someone else said, he looks like hes riding a scooter CrazyLaugh

I dont know what is it with many of the merchandise for the TH, particularly posters and covers that are so uninspired...

Wish the US DVD cover looked like this. [In reply to] Can't Post

Hate how US Blu-ray buyers get the new image cover, while DVD buyers get the boring Bilbo with Sting. Was hoping something like this would be the cover, but nope....

The BluRay comes with a DVD... [In reply to] Can't Post

So you could buy the BluRay and just use the DVD until you have a BluRay player. Just a thought.

I know that [In reply to] Can't Post

But, in my weird OCD way, I normally get the DVD-only on release, then during the holidays get the Blu-ray. I like the cheaper DVD and my PS3 is normally used for playing games on a SDTV.
