Just in time for my b-day, can't wait. Langella gave an amazing performance as Nixon and Sheen wasn't a slouch as Frost.

There is way too much going on in that cover art.

I personally hate that artwork, given what a fine design the original 1-sheet was.

Re: Frost/Nixon: 4/21/09

Sticking with the 'Oscar Nominations' blurb rather than holding out until after the awards are given. Makes sense since unlikely it will take any of the key awards.

Great movie, which I plan on catching a second time on DVD.

Very busy artwork, I would have liked something more simple, but regardless, I was lucky enough to catch this in theaters, and will probably pick up the BR.

Re: Frost/Nixon: 4/21/09

I can't believe they didnt go with a picture of the two men during one of the interviews...It's looks alot like the art work on Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.

Re: Frost/Nixon: 4/21/09

anyone think we will get a 2-disc eventually? i rented this over the weekend and absolutely loved it. i want it and will watch it again very soon, plus i think it has a lot of historical accuracy coupled with the dramatization that would make it interesting to a high school class. maybe even comparing to real thing and use with a class perhaps one day.

but, would like to have more. i went through the extras and the 'real interview' segment was nice with the talking heads, but a movie like this i think deserves some more. more historical inspection or what have you. perhaps packaged with the actual DVD of the real interviews would be an easy sell for me. a lot of Howard's others have 2-discs, so what about this one?

i think they will. i watched it last weekend myself and also really enjoyed it. i think it deserves some more extras and some more information of the historical inspection as you put it.
