More than 1 release of The Royal Tenenbaums?

I just want to know if there are more than 1 release of this DVD. I know the Criterion, but did Buena Vista have there own version without Criterion that anyone knows about?
The reason I ask is the Digital Eyes site that I want to buy from doesn't have the same picture of the Criterion release that everyone else has (the white background). Digital Eyes shows a pink background but lists it as a 2 disc set with the same extras and DTS sound.
If anyone knows, please help me out. I appreciate in advance. Thanks.

Some sites use the slipcover art (the Tenenbaum family portrait), others use the keepcase cover art (a pastel painting of the young Richie and Mordecai, the falcon).

The Criterion release is the only one in the US.

EDIT: I investigated further and now see what you're talking about with the family portrait having a pink background (and no "The Criterion Collection" notation) on some sites (Digital Eyes,,

I checked Buena Vista's website, and they only show a Criterion Collection release. The art work on some sites may be the original poster art instead of the cover art.

Yep, Buena Vista licensed it to Criterion. The two covers caused some confusion when it was announced as well.

This is a great DVD, and one of the cheaper Criterions to own (it can be found easily for under $15)
