I found this on DVD File's forum. It looks the special edition release will come out sooner than expected.

Dutch (speaking to the DVD cover art):

The art on the current disc isn't that bad, it's a shame they didn't keep it.

What's with the number 15 on the spine? I can't believe Fox are actually going ahead with their numbering of SEs. Which other titles have this?

I like it! It is consistent in style with the POTA box art of this Fox series.

Yeah, what is that number on the spine for? I noticed it on my Alien and Aliens boxes as well- numbers 10 and 11, respectively. I assume they are some sort of record of how many "ultimate editions"(or whatever they're calling them) have been released; similar to how Criterion numbers all their releases. Is this correct?

almost all of the five star collections have been rereleased in digipacks and numbered. i m guessing they want to create a criterion collector craze.

anyways that cover just stinks.Posted Image
hopefully they'll replace it. at first glance i couldn't even figure out if it was arnold or the predator.

I'm in for this...when? Though I don't much care about the cover "art", it reminds me of: Posted Image

In a very simple way, it does actually fit for both.

Fox said in a previous chat that this would be out in time for AVP so I just assumed it meant July or so. If cover art is already available though it could be out sooner.

What's with the 15 anyway? "The Commitments" is already number 15. This Predator one is temp-only cover art, I'm guessing?

I love the cover. Any word on the Special features or if its in DTS? I would hedge a bet it is.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually a lenticular cover that changes between Arnold and the Predator when you hold it at different angles. DJ

Thats kind of what I was thinking. It would of been cool if they made a holographic cover that mimics the Predator's stealth suit. You hold it at one angle and its plain like the cover above. Hold it at another angle and you get an outline of the Predator's body with its eyes glowing. Than again that would be expensive. They could make it a limited editon cover.

That is really cool. I think that may be the idea of the cover posted above. I couldn't really tell what it was until i read the other posts. The idea of blending the images of Arnold and Predator doesn't really make sense. At least I don't get that idea. But having a neat "switching" effect might be pretty cool. I really like the idea of the "stealth cover." thats clever.Posted Image

Also having a lenticular cover (i assume thats what its called, thanks to Damin) could have something to do with a similar cover design for AvP, switching between predator and alien...

(beginning of quote not typed out of respect for some who might be offended). But this shit will turn you into a damn sexual ty-ran-o-saur-us!

We must stand in awe of the infinite capacity of the human mind to reject the introduction of useful knowledge.
