? RE old WB snap cases

I have some old WB DVD with snap cases that i was wondering was ever released with regular cases.

Matrix, Swordfish, Oceans Eleven, dreamcatcher, death to smoochy.

i can only assume that these dvds are still in production, did WB ever switch to standard cases for these titles?

I bought Swordfish recently and it's still snap.

The only WB movie that I know of for sure that's been upgraded from a snapper to a keepcase (and isn't a completely new edition) is North by Northwest. The new keepcase versions of Calamity Jane and Papillon I believe are straight reissues of the old DVD as well, but I'm not positive. As Cameron mentioned, however, a lot of WB movies that were released in stores in snapper cases were issued to Blockbuster and Hollywood Video (exclusively) in keepcases. You can often find some for sale in their Previously Viewed section, or from people who bought them there and are now reselling them themselves.
