Also, Catch Me if You Can may be revealed within the next month or so.
Wow, that's a pretty lame/boring cover.
The theatrical and promotional posters had very nice artwork with beautiful colours, really capturing the setting of the film and representing the cinematography of the film.
And this is the best what Universal can come up with?
Oh well... I won't hesitate to purchase it on release day.
I agree with Marc. Hopefully they'll change it before the release date to better represent the film.
They will probably change it slightly if it wins some Academy Awards.
Considering Universal do not own this title in Canada ( it's an Odeon Films release through Alliance ) we may yet see a better cover for this title.
WTF can't they just use the gorgeous theatrical poster art?
That is a truly awful cover, I wonder if directors have any say in what the covers look like or if its all up to the sudio. The theatrical poster had the 2 big stars on it all ready, why the need to change it?
this cover does not have much of a fifties feel to it. The original poster art has more of a "Douglas Sirk" motif.
This reminds me very much of the Mulholland Drive cover. Why they didn't use the poster art is beyond me.
I'm just guessing here, but is it possible they'd have to pay the designer of the original poster either a lump sum or royalties if they used that design on all the DVDs? Just a thought.
Univeral: Use theatrical poster art, please!
Ugh. I'm really looking forward to this DVD. This may be the first time that I get a new cover from dvdcovers.net though. Yuck!
Great movie. Terrible DVD cover. Truly among the worst I've ever seen, though perhaps not quite as bad as the Hitchcock Collection cut-and-paste jobs. Is there a nominating committee for "worst DVD art department"?
Any word on extra features?
Noggins and an Oscar blurb...how original.
I wish studios would just use the theatrical poster art. What is so difficult about that? Those who've seen the film in theaters will identify with that image; those who haven't seen the film won't care either way.
That cover may be the one sent on advance screeners to Academy voters, I would guess Universal will probably use the original poster art for the actual release.
Alliance-Atlantis are supposedly using the original poster artwork for their release.
Far From Heaven (ALLIANCE-ATLANTIS)
-scroll down to April 1st, 2003 (warning- this page contains alot of images)
For reference sake, the disc art is the same as the poster image at IMDB.
I've never done this before, but I like this movie so much and I hate the Universal DVD art so viscerally that I'd pay more for the Alliance-Atlantis release if it's otherwise just as good. Is this a possibility for me (R1/NTSC-only)?
