The Official Snapper To Keepcase List
 
This is my official list of DVDs that were originally in snappers and are now sold in keepcases. This does NOT include movies like Rebel Without A Cause or GoodFellas which was a 1 disc snapper and is now a 2 disc keepcase. Almost all of these are the exact same release, just a different case. This also does not include movies that were never released in a snapper like Dial M For Murder or Terminator 3.
Please E-mail me if you see a release that has been converted.

Here is a thread with a few more mentioned...
http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=393173

I think you should include titles that have been upgraded to a special edition or 2-disc set, as they are replacing the old version with a much better version.

That's just a thread asking if anyone quit buying snapper and what everyone is waiting for. That's not a list of what's out.

I do agree with you that upgrades to 2-disc Special Editions sould be included on the list. After all, it's not in a snapper anymore.

This thread has more listed:

I respectfully disagree. :)


Then, this thread becomes more about upgraded DVDs rather than upgraded cases. It's definitely handy to have a thread/list of DVDs where the only difference is the type of case... and including new SEs just waters that down.

Thank you bboisvert!

That's why I created this thread. I knew there was already a thread dealing with snapper to keepcases but it involved DVDs that were never in snappers to begin with.

Nightmare on Elm Street is now in a keepcase. I have seen it in mumerous places like BB, Target, and WM.

Dabaomb 06-03-05 10:38 PM

Giant SE in the James Dean Boxset is in a keepcase....it was previously in a digipak.

runnersdialzero 06-08-05 09:47 AM

Added some New Line titles. Anyone have pics of Nightmare on Elm Street in keepcase?

I was just thinking the same thing about Giant, mine is in a digipak. Also Grease and Saturday Night Fever when were these two titles in snapper cases???

They were both originally (and inexplicably) released in a thin (and cheap looking) cardboard/digipack-type case. Then, after about 6 months or so, they started showing up in a more traditional keepcase.

... and are the sequels also being converted over to keepcase?

digitalfreaknyc 06-08-05 10:35 AM

Are we sure about Life As a House? I got it at blockbuster and it was the same snapper used elsewhere.

runnersdialzero 06-08-05 11:22 AM

As far as I know, Life As A House has not been released by New Line in a keepcase but you can get it in a keepcase at Hollywood Video only.

Added some New Line titles. I wonder why they haven't switched over The Cell, Pleasantville, Dark City, Hurlyburly, Deconstructing Harry, The Player, Shine, or Wag the Dog.

Still need pics of Nightmare on Elm Street. I've been to Best Buy and WalMart and still have not seen it in a keepcase.

I agree as long as its a seperate section...ie, I want to know whats exactly the same except being in a keep case, and what was rereleased in a keepcase SE (Rebel With a Cause, Miss Congeniality, etc).

Also, The Mask keepcase version is an SE. North by Northwest by Warner is not an SE, but the keepcase version has a few different features than the original snapper.

As far as Matchstick Men on the HV/BBV only list, I have the 2-disc DVD/CD soundtrack which came in a keepcase at all retail stores for a short period of time...not sure if this should go on the list.

Truely, I'm not playing games. The first Nightmare on Elm Street is now available in a keepcase. Someone in the similar companion thread to this one has also seen it. Do you really need to see something for it to be true? If I was a newbie, be sceptical, but I've been around this place since 1999.

In answer to why some of the titles you have mentioned are not in a keepcase, I would guess that it is based on popularity of a title and the amount of back stock NewLine has. If you look at the list of converts, it is some of NewLines most popular catalog titles and movies that have had recent sequels that have caused an increase in demand for the original movie. Out of your list, I would guess that Dark City and The Cell would be the next to pop up somewhere in a keepcase.

Also, don't forget Pump up the Volume, Detroit Rock City, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Sugar and Spice among others.

Skoobooz 06-13-05 09:52 PM

Not that corrorboration is needed, but I've also seen Nightmare on Elm Street in a keepcase at Wal-Mart.

Anyone seen this in the US?

Skoobooz 06-13-05 10:11 PM

Actually, if you look at Pleasantville on Amazon, it looks like a keepcase:

Mr.Briggs 06-13-05 10:39 PM

Are they changing all UPC when changing to a keep case. I've still got a lot of sealed snappers from last year's DDD 20% off sale (BIG order) & if they had the same UPC I could probably swap 'em at Wal Mart when the keep cases start arriving. If they change the UPCs though they usually remove the old ones from their system & you can't exchange them.
