Anyone know if this new version of The Proposition listed as released on August 19, 2008...

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/517R3rmUV4L._SS500_.jpg

...is any different than this initial version of The Proposition which was released in 2006:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51WwqYJn4yL._SS500_.jpg

I've been meaning to pick up that initial version for a while and I was about to order it tonight and then I saw the new version. I can't tell if it has a better transfer or if there are new features beyond the commentary, five featurettes, and two deleted scenes on the initial release.

If they're exactly the same, I'm trying to decide if an extra $1.51 is worth the cooler cover art of the new release ($12.99 vs. $10.49). Either way, I need to pick up a copy soon and while it's cheap because I want my wife to see it before the John Hillcoat-directed The Road comes out over Thanksgiving.

Any info? Thanks.

Yeah, the new edition is a steelbook. It's $9.99 regular price at Target, and I believe it's the same disc as before -- though I can't be completely certain -- which is pretty darn good.

Thanks. It looks like I'm about to own my first steelbook DVD. :)

It's also now on Blu-Ray with that same cover. It's $14.99 at Best Buy.

Yes, and the blu-ray looks great.

I have both editions. The disc content is the same but the disc art was changed to match the Steelbook cover...

Just got the new Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack, which has the best art of all of them, IMO:

Gee, I wonder why they thought bold blood red, black, and white would be a good fit for the cover of this movie? It's a mystery...
