    Here's a link to an article in USA TODAY about movie poster art, Tony Seiniger (JAWS, HULK, SCHINDLER'S LIST) inparticular. It's good reading, and a reminder of why the studios should always include the original poster art somewhere in the packaging of dvds, preferably the cover.

    Good article. I wish DVDs would use the original poster art. The "photoshop gone wild" approach is so tacky. I'm also not a fan of "huge heads in the sky" syndrome.
