    Any news on SE's of the other Clancy movies? You'd think there would be some sort of cross promotion.

    Is that the exact same cover as the movie poster? Can't wait for the dvd though, especially since I missed it in theaters.

    Exact poster art, yes. NO SE's of the others on the way!! Forgive me if I'm exasperated, and perhaps you just missed it, but that question keeps getting asked, and the answer hasn't changed.

    *Sigh*, such a shame the poster had to be a "look at my noggin" one

    I'd erase Ben&Morgan's heads, center the title and kill the Ebert quote

    I figured that the cover art was going to be the same as the poster and the PC game box art.

    It looks like the DVD art doesn't have the tagline though:

    "27,000 nuclear weapons. One is missing."

    Well, not quite exactly the same. Posters tend to have the title at the bottom, whereas DVD boxes have them at the top. [​IMG]

    I personaly like the poster art and I am glad they kept it. The movie was great, I hope to pick it up.

    *yawn* Couldn't they try, just once, to put a little thought into cover-art? And it doesn't matter that this resembles the poster, cause the posters are just as boring and unimaginative as the DVD cover art.

    I never like big heads on posters or covers. I think, like Jeff said, get rid of the heads and make the title a little larger. Also, I'd add more red.

    Ha. It's better than the screener tape. Instead of the Roger Ebert quote it says this "SEE THIS ONE." Jeffery Lyons, NBC TV.

    Anyways, I would imagine this must be seen on DVD (audio wise).

    I honestly wasn't too impressed with the adaptation of the movie. I think the editing was pretty rough, would've liked a longer version.

    Well, I've never read the book, and enjoyed the film immensely. I never try to confuse the entertainment of a book with that of a film...they're two separate mediums. But this isn't the place for such a discussion. My wife and I are looking forward to the DVD is all I'm trying to say.

    Anyone else find it odd that they would willingly put the 3 1/2 stars in the quote on the front?? Seems to me, if I have a film that got anything less than 4 stars, I surely wouldn't be putting that in quotes on the front of my DVD packaging. That's almost promoting mediocrity. Not that I think the film itself is "mediocre", I quite enjoyed... but you know what I mean.
    I don't like quotes on DVD covers to begin with, but this one just seems downright nonsensical. I would have left it at just "Thumbs Up!" or left it off altogether.

    If its 3.5 stars out of 4 than that's pretty good.

    Yeaa, but 3.5 isn't perfect. It just looks silly on there. Almost like they're hoping people will ask "Is that the best they could do?" It'd be much better if they just gave a line from a review instead of the rating.
