    Probably not final (I hope so, at least!), but this just came out in theaters 3 days ago! I'm sure the cover will change, though. I can see "From the director of The Crow and Dark City!", as well as some stupid critics' quotes. Being an Alex Proyas fan, this is a no brainer. I saw it on a Thursday midnight showing and loved it. Hopefully it's a two-disc set.

    It's not bad. I really liked this one too, and I was not expecting to. Probably Will Smith's best since Independence Day. If this makes enough money, it might be possible to see a Director's Cut, a la Hellboy.

    I thought this movie was pretty decent, but the ending just seemed too rushed. Also, I find it odd that nobody would have noticed those new models have the override components, the old models are left on and stored instead of recycled for scrap parts, and such a nice house would be demolished and not sold.

    I will most likely buy this dvd though, and I have a pretty good feeling that the helicopter scene will contain some pretty low and powerful bass.

    I enjoyed this and will be buying it no doubt. I was sorta hoping we would see a 5 star type from Fox or a 2 disc set but we'll see I guess.

    Yeah the cover's DECENT, I mean it's not one of my favorites (plagued with the big noggin syndrome) but it looks alright.

    I didn't really like the film too much but I'll give it another chance on disc, every movie gets at least two chances to win me over...except House of the Dead which says it all right there.

    Eh, that's a pretty bland cover. I have a feeling that Fox will end up changing it before the release date comes.

    I agree with Tony, it's bland. Nevertheless, this just isn't one that I'd see in a theater but will buy the DVD blind.

    I like how the slip cover is transparent and that part of the artwork is on it. so that if you want to see all of it, you have to have the slipcover on it. I think that's better than a DVD that comes with one that just has a slipcover that is a replica of the cover itself a la Spiderman 2 and Rundown, etc...

    The picture is a little fuzzy, is the disc in DTS?

    Will Smith not on the cover? Hard to believe.

    And that indeed is how it is. I think it is different and I like it actually.

    That cover actually looks a little odd to me. The eyes seem strange...

    I received the DVD screener of this one today, and I love the DVD sleeve art and the slipcase.
