Do you have a pic? I went to Universal's site, but was unable to locate it.

Yes, posting a link to the 'new' cover art is helpful when creating a thread about it.

I'm not positive, but I think Universal also distributes Dreamworks titles - which might explain the addition of the floating heads to the What Lies Beneath cover.

This is nothing new for Universal-they changed the covers of The Deer Hunter and The Sting as well. What's different about this one is that the DVD of U-571 was pretty good, so I wonder why they're trying to make people think it's an updated release (like I believe they were with the other titles).

Universal changed many of their covers, but the discs are the same.

The studios must think people demand more floating heads. I guess they don't read message boards or articles on the net. All I ever read is complaints about floating heads on movie posters and DVD covers. I agree that floating heads usually sucks and the old cover is better.

I just bought the version with the new cover art and it did not come with an insert. Is this the same for anyone else or did I get shortchanged?
