    I kinda liked the first design but Warner have decided to revise the artwork for Terminator 3. They've opted for a much simpler design which is pretty cool although I'm not so sure about the big grey border all the way around the outside. What you think?

    Aye, on reflection I think I prefered the first one too. The borders on this new artwork definately make it look too much like a Superbit release for my liking. Isn't bad enough for me to stop myself from buying it though!

    Maybe the border is to show off the fact it's not a snapper [​IMG]

    I'm showing this as the Full Frame artwork .. so maybe there's hope the widescreen version will reflect the old art.

    Yea I hope the widescreen art is the same as before. I've got that poster up on the wall and it'd be nice for the DVD to reflect it too. I don't think Warner does different covers for their multiple releases (which has been done for every one of their major releases for the past year) so this will probably be for both.

    Aye, well the above artwork is showing up for both widescreen and fullscreen editions on Warner's press site so I imagine it'll be identical for both releases. Not sure where they'll put the widescreen/fullscreen banners though, I guess they'd have to go down the bottom which will look a bit odd.

    An ugly cover to go next to Warner's equally ugly cover for Matrix Reloaded.

    What's with the reflection? That's really weak.

    Frankly, I thought the T3 poster was weak to begin with. This one is no better.

    I prefer this one much more than the original. I really liked the theatrical poster. Although I liked the poster that showed Arnold walking gun in hand through smoke.

    The gray border is hideous. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    At least it's in a keepcase though...

    Is it just me, or does this new cover art remind you of the movie poster for the Deniro/Snipes film, The Fan?

    I really hated the first cover (the walking robots, ick!). I'd prefer this one without the grey border, but at least it's a step up from the last one. The monochromatic look works really well for Terminator sets (maybe this is why I didn't care for the first one...?)
