    Yikes. That cover artwork is awful.

    But it's a great movie, so I definitely want to get it. I'm glad to see it will be stacked with features since I'm interested in diving deep into what I think is one of the best movies of last year.

    While I didn't see many films in the theater in 2019, this was one of two 2019 releases I did see. Just a great "whodunnit" from start to finish. Great cast, pitch perfect screenplay, not a wasted shot in the whole film (that includes shots that deceptively look reused). This is going to be demo 4K material from how it looked and sounded theatrically. Though, I'll be picking up the Best Buy 4K steelbook, which is designed to look like one of Harlan Thrombey's novels.

    I've read some people say that the disc cover art could be seen as spoilerish for the movie... I haven't seen the movie yet so just in case I'm not going to look at the artwork but can anyone who has seen it comment on if it is?

    Only if someone thinks that showing the people that are in the movie is a spoiler. The cover is just a reworking of the poster so that James Bond and Captain America (who are currently the most famous folks in the movie) are featured much more prominently than the rest of the actors. I guess they felt obligated to throw Ana de Armas in between them since she's actually the lead of the movie.
