Looks like its already made it's rounds. My bad. Perhaps it was meant to be posted a second time, this is truly one of the worst DVD covers I've ever laid my eyes on.

I was in the Blockbuster with my friends one time, and for some reason we laughed at this cover for about 15 minutes.  You know those late-night-over-caffeinated-sugar-high-movie-benders?  This was one of them.
Classic.

MGM has produced some of the shittiest covers from a major studio.  I think Sony-MGM will continue this tradition, if the new 13 Going on 30 and Gattaca covers are to be believed.

What the hell is that supposed to be?  Has Nic Cage torn through some tarp?

They're not that different than the posters:

About the new covers: it looks like the only thing Han Solo can do is pointing a gun and look real nasty. And princess Leia on the third seems more as a promotion for Flesh Gordon or something. :ponder:

Now that Lucas has taken the original trilogy away from the Black Marketeers, they can stay alive by mocking up DVD covers with the original artwork.

This has pretty much everything to make a DVD cover look like crap.  Giant head, grid of thumbnails, critics' quotes...all it needs is a Lars von Trier peekaboo.

even though what you say is factually correct, i like that cover. it reminds me of pokemon but with people. and the information doesn't hide anything.

yeah they are.  the posters had nothing but cool poses.  the dvd boxes have floating heads and bad poses.
