    I hope this isn't terribly redundant, but after a quick search I didn't see a post with this issue in the title.

    Were there two different R1 editions of "The Weather Man", so far as cover art is concerned? Some retailers show only the cover art with Cage walking down the street with a bow strapped over his shoulder, while others have the one with a head and shoulders shot of Cage wearing a trench coat, with a chocolate shake (Frosty) splattered over it.

    My copy has the 'bow' cover too, but many web sites seem to have the 'Frosty' cover.

    There's no two-disc version, so maybe the cover art was changed before release?

    I actually like the Frosty version a bit better, but the bow version has more meaning regarding the journey of the character.

    I do tons of blind-buys on DVD; sometimes I get burned (Two for the Money), sometimes I hit gold (The Weather Man).

    Are the covers different depending on whether it's full screen or widescreen?
