    So, does anyone know if the DVD will be the Unrated or the R rated version?

    For everything I've read, it will be rated R.
    Considering how violent this film was, would we need the un-rated cut? (A man's are are literaly ripped from their sockets... How much more graphic can you get?)
    BTW, the rumors of the un-rated cut have been just that, rumors. No one involved with theproduction has ever said naything about it.

    There is no "unrated" edition of TOTAL RECALL. The theatrical version of the film is the "director's cut." Verhoeven may have shot some more graphically violent stuff, but he never had a problem with the MPAA with it's inclusion.
    It's bloody enough for me as it stands, thanks.

    Then whats with the "director's cut" LD?? Has anyone seen it?
    + It was originally NC-17 but they cut it by seconds (i guess-like Robocop) so that it's still pretty violent & packs a punch,yet theres some graphic shots cut.

    Yes, I've seen the "director's cut" laserdisc. It's the same R-rated version that was presented theatrically AND is the same R-rated version we'll be seeing soon from Artisan.
    Sorry, but this movie was NOT originally rated NC-17. It always has been "R" and it will always BE an "R." Well, that is....unless Verhoeven wishes to recut the film, but there's been no indication that he wishes to do so (if he did, then that's the version we would be seeing on the upcoming Artisan SE).
    Just look up the film at www.imdb.com and you'll see NO mention of an NC-17/"unrated" cut of the film. There isn't one.

    The completed cover is as shown on this page:
    http://www.thedigitalbits.com/articl...omingart3.html
    It is unconventional, to say the least. The planet Mars depicted is actually a tin can, which houses the DVD itself and a few circular inserts. The DVD sits on a piece of circular foam. The rest of the packaging is a thin cardboard structure that holds the can.
    Incidentally, the cover for "Basic Instinct" is also unconventional. The plastic casing is translucent blue. The DVD also sits on a piece of circular foam, but the case snaps pretty tightly to keep the disc securely seated on the foam. The ice pick shown is actually included, in the form of a novelty pen.

    Perry, I believe thats why Jeff was asking if anyone had completed a new replacement cover for it (to fit a conventional case)

    Total Recall DID get an NC-17. I read an interview with Verhoeven once and he mentioned that Hollow Man is the only movie that got a clean R rating.

    I'm waiting for finish my cover until I actually have the new SE, as I'd like to incorporate some elements from it in my design. I'll have them uploaded to realitycrash as soon as I'm finished. I've added a few covers recently so you might want to check it out (my stuff is gallery #4)

    Now is the "unconventional" case the only one available?
    Or is it like the Anchor Bay tins, where a "normal" keep case version was also released?
    I really want this disc, but I don't care for the odd case at all...
