    How many R1 releases for Leon/The Professional does this make? 4, 5? I've honestly lost track.





    They really seem to be out to milk their customers for all they can get.

    Picture? not much difference, although some say the SUPERBIT has a ton of EE. It's the audio comparison between the SUPERBIT(both the DD and DTS tracks) and the corrected International that caused so much stir.





    A search in this forum will bring up more discussion. Don't want to hi-jack this thread.





    Yes, that Leon cover is beautiful!! Looks as if I'll purchase it (after all) for the cover, place my INT version in place of the SB, and use it as a coaster.

    Unless I'm mistaken there have only been 2 Leon releases, the "International" edition and the superbit. Then there is also the regular "The Professional."

    so this would be the 4th release...





    I assume a corrected Superbit was released like it was for the non superbit right?

    Wouldn't it make more financial sense to just wait until someone makes a cover scan available to download (which will take no time at all) and then just switch out the International cover with this one?

    Oh, look! Somebody's first Photoshop montage! How cute! [​IMG]

    And their best quote is from Owen Gleiberman from EW? "This is the ride"? What does that even mean?

    And why is the cruise ship on the cover *twice*?

    And the motion blur behind the police car is just *so* classy.

    Terrible.

    The colour scheme does fit the movie but the heads are terrible - that doesn't even look like Milla Jovovich.

    Can we fire every Region One DVD designer now. This has to end.

    I think Columbia got this guy on loan from MGM, and they asked him to make the ultimate shit DVD cover. And here it is - the worst DVD cover ever created. Thanks for shitting all over my favorite movie Columbia!!!

    God I'm mad.

    p.s. to the designer: I like the cop cars flying in from the right - looks like their trying to kamikaze that boat. Classy touch.

    I'm sure there will be custom covers galore if that cover for FE is the actual one.

    ^ I wonder when CTHV will release the Fifth Element: Leeloo Dallas Multipass Edition, which is essentially this new UE, an uglier cover (if such a thing is possible) and the superbit video track (no DTS tho, you'll have to wait for the Fifth Elemet: Super Green edition for that)

    Didn't Fifth Element have a international version as well? For some reason I thought the French release had a little more too it.

    DVDTimes is now saying that the first DVD will be the Superbit version. [​IMG]





    Too bad - I was really hoping for an audio commentary or two.





    Guess I'll have to wait for the next release.
