OK I realize I've been posting too much about VCB recently, but I felt compelled here.



It's essentially the same as the original poster.  After seeing this, I realized the original poster SUCKS and does nothing for the original movie's beautiful photography.

Also: can we please shoot whoever made everyone put their BluRay discs in these ugly blue cases?  Talk about uncollectable art.  It's BluRay.  We get it.  We don't need to have the branding invade our brains every time we look at the disc.

Finally, why are BOTH of the quotes on the front cover basically saying the exact same thing?  There's tons more to praise about the film, but we need a repetative "Seductive and Funny!" quote?

Oh and actually one more thing.  Cruz is up for an Oscar.  Anyone want to guess what the redesigned cover will look like?

Nothing says "buy this" like a giant gray box.

Bad photoshop too - they're obviously not photographed together at all.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Weren't the first trailers and advertising for Slumdog very dark and suspenseful? I don't remember them being all happy go lucky feel good film of the year.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Apparently the groom became a white guy.

Also qualifies for the Giant Fucking Face thread.

That's the father isn't it. I actually like that cover. What else would they have done?

D'oh.  I'm a moron.  Well, that's what I get for posting at 3am when I'm sleep-deprived.

interesting thoughts about that (white guy): http://www.hollywood-elsewhere.com/2009/02/racial_dodge.php
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
