    According to digitalbits, Warner Bros. wants input as to what cover art people would like to see for the DVD release of Reloaded. These are the 3 choices currently online:

    I think I like the first one, despite the fact that I usually don't like the 'big head' treatment. It seems cooler and I also like the reflections of certain scenes in the character's sunglasses.

    Edit: If you want to see bigger images of the characters from the first version to see the scenes reflected in their glasses:

    I like #3 and they can release as many versions as they want as long as I get the widescreen

    Third one for me also. The first would be good if it weren't for those huge heads.

    I think it's a great idea that they are trying to get feedback on cover art. It's about time the studios started listening to us about Cover Art. Some of it is horrible, and bad cover art does not make me want to but a movie. I just WISH they would listen to us and drop the snapper cases. I like the third cover art the best. If they issue this movie in Pan & Scan, they are idiots, who in their right mind would buy a movie like that in P&S?

    How many people bought Star Wars I or II in Fullscreen? Not many at all! My Wal-Mart got equeal amounts of both, and ALL of the Widescreen copies were sold, but I didn't see a noticible reduction with the fullscreen copies. They are still there!

    Initially I liked the 3rd one too but after looking at it for a while I think it's too green, Morpheus doesn't use that gun in the movie(does he? I don't remember seeing it) and I don't like the way Trinity looks. I also like the darker scheme and the title treatment of the first one besides the other points I mentioned about it above.

    The 1st if you look at the sunglasses there are reflections from sceans in the movie in them.

    First one. The background in the third one kills it, it looks like it belongs on a Sprite bottle.

    I'll go for the first one because it sticks with designs from the theatrical poster campaign. With Matrix Reloaded having seemingly endless posters, they could do a Reservoir Dogs-esque multiple cover release...in which I'd go for the one that featured the army of Smiths. I wish they would leave the widescreen version without lame banner at the top and only put the banner on the fullscreen release. My final vote:

    First one, in a keep case, with DTS-ES discrete. (C'mon Warners, even the redheaded stepchildren of DVD studios, like MGM and Artisan, have jumped aboard DTS train!)

    I also like the third one better. The 2nd one looks too bland & I don't like the first one since it has the closeup of the actors.

    That's great that they want input, but they are leaving out one very important factor...where do we vote?

    I've checked digital bits, nothing. I checked all over warner brother's website, nothing. Checked the matrix website, nothing. So where is this survey? Is it over already?

    I would vote for #1...if I could.

    #1 all the way. I love the way scenes are reflected in the glasses. #2 and #3 look like Photoshop projects.

    Without a doubt the first one is the most imaginative, and, therefore, the best choice in my opinion. The rest look like every other DVD cover out there. I'm surprised at the third one's popularity, but to each his own I suppose.

    In fact, I'm not buying it if it doesn't have the first cover!

    Just kidding. [​IMG] Figure I might as well get that inevitable comment out of the way early. [​IMG]

    They list the DVD as being in widescreen on the bottom of the back, anyway, so why not just leave it off?

    I like the first one, but Neo looks too fake and Trinity's nose is weird looking.
