This will be a Blu-Ray purchase for me. As for the cover art, it could have been a lot worse.

Are we just copying and pasting from DVDActive these days? Anyway, good cover, but damn is it annoying when the headshots and names below don't line up.

Well, the art is MUCH better than the one for Gone Baby Gone or Zodiac, but I'm still not a fan. Either way, the Blu-ray is going to be mine. I'll be sure to bring an oxygen tank to Best Buy to prevent people from taking my copy.

P.S.: This is probably a HILARIOUS movie to shoplift and then get caught for. The irony writes itself.

I don't buy a lot of new DVDs (buy used, wait for inevitable upgrade or wait until the price drops) but this is a no-brainer first day purchase for me.

Barely.
I think it's a terrible cover. Don't they have any originality these days? I'm sick of the floating heads.

I much preferred the original theatrical poster:

They could have at least switched the placement for the names of Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin.

it seems kinda of "meh" to me, and i agree the poster would have made a better cover

Whoah, bad cover, but I'll be getting the Blu-ray on day one. Saw it twice, and am reading the book now.

Blind buy for me, love the Coens when they're at their best, and this looks like it's no exception.

How do all of you display your movies that the box artwork is an issue?
