    I noticed that John Q., Blade 2, and Jason X are not snappers. Is this a new permanent thing for New Line? I really hope so cause I really hate the snapper cases. I sure hope Warner starts doing the same thing.

    - John Q is an Infinifilm title, alas no snapper.
    - Blade II is a two-disc special edition, ergo no snapper.
    When I see Jason X in a keepcase (either from a review of the DVD or in my hands), then I'll believe New Line is not using snappers anymore.

    I hope you mean 'ergo' and not 'alas'. 'Alas' means unfortunately.

    Doesn't look like snapper art to me:

    Also, the two-disc LOTR is naturally not in a snapper.

    All I can figure is that either Jason X is a two-discer or they're using keepcases for all Infinifilm and Platinum titles and snappers for everything else.

    Jason Goes to Hell looks to be a keepcase also. I don't have the image uploaded though.

    I think the reason that both Jason movies are in keepcases is because newline is considerate of the people who have already bought the Paramount releases. That way they look all nice and purdy when lined up. When I see a regular 1-disc non-series movie, then I'll believe they have dumped snappers.

    New Line titles are released in Canada by Alliance Atlantis. Since they started including french tracks on DVDs from New Line, they had to make a new package indicating the additional track. Fortunately, they use Amaray cases instead of the snapper ones.

    I noticed Blade (the first) in a non-snapper package too!

    The Jason X Pic is just a mock-up after all, it might not look like that upon release.
