I have a feeling I know which one is going to win. I chose Japan. I liked the image and layout the best.

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - The Dark Knight

Japan.
The US one is retarded.
The German one is pretty good too, but the cover for the Dark Knight should have a picture of.............wait for it...............The Dark Knight, not the Joker IMO.

I love these threads by the way

I voted the US, because under that slipcover is a shot of the Joker that I always liked.

I agree 100%. I voted Japan, because that's the best of the covers that actually feature Batman (though I don't hate the batpod cover as much as many people).

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - The Dark Knight

Japan is the best.

UK would be good if they got ride of the tagline and those eyesore ratings certificates (although I've read they can't).

German cover is cool but it should feature Batman on the cover.

US cover is my least favorite cover.

Too bad no country had something like this as a cover:

Good call. I do think that's the best of all. I really love mine.

Japan but I think that under the slipcover (ie. the actual case art) of the US version is fantastic.

Went with Japan. Looks to be the clear leader now.

Another vote for Japan. Honestly, I'm surprised that didn't wind up being the cover art for the U.S. release.

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - The Dark Knight

Japan version has two Bat logos too close at the top. I prefer the UK version, good image and resolves the two logo issue... by moving it to the bottom. Works better.

I don't like the double logo either, but voted for it anyway.

And it loses big points for that in my book. I know they have to do it, but it's ugly. I'm not a fan of the silly tagline on the UK art either, or the cast names placed awkwardly in the middle. That's what pushed me to the Japanese cover, double bat and all.

I didn't know Shane Hurlbut was a member of DVD Talk. You're the douche Shane.

Japan, but with so many customs out there for these things, it only ceases to be an option if you get the film in a novelty case that can't be altered, like a Steelbook or Mask, or whatever else.
