    Is that the original artwork? The poster art for the UK theatrical release was very different to that. The one above is the same as the old LD release.

    Rob, it's definately the same as the U.S. 1-sheet (which I am VERY glad they have used...it's a breathtaking box, and I want this DVD ***NOW*** [​IMG] ):

    ...but there WAS a very cool-looking one for Europe. Is this it?

    Ooh the original poster art, nice, although I prefer the European one David.[​IMG]

    It's finally coming out on DVD, woohoo! that's greet mon! My favorite dragon on film that isn't voiced by an ex-James Bond.

    Vermithrax Pejorative (now who would name a dragon that? And why?) easily one of the fiercest, cruellest, bad-tempered dragons you ever set eyes on, look at the bones!!![​IMG]

    Dave, thanks for the image!

    I prefer the American poster art - more subdued, more atmospheric. The European cover art looks like the cover of a fantasy book or old D&D module. That's not necessarily a bad thing - the image certainly looks pretty cool - but for the movie, I like the more understated American art.

    Major happiness on the title, the availability, and the beautiful cover.

    Sold and sold! Can't wait to see it in OAR!

    Take care,
    Chuck

    Great cover! I guess they couldn't PhotoShop this one to death as a giant headshot of star Peter MacNicol probably wouldn't have sold many copies but to a few Ally McBeal stalwarts.[​IMG]

    It seems like you can never go wrong with original artwork. Don't hear too many complaints about it.

    Yes, that was it Dave. The one used in the UK though had far better colouring than that comic-book looking one.
