I like U.K., the U.S. one isn't that bad.

Germany just slightly over the U.S., but I like all three.

UK.

The US version is horrible. I'm surprised they made room for the actual title.

Honestly? I think they all suck.

The German version sucks the least, though.

Do the US covers ever win in these threads? I guess other parts of the world don't need to be hit over the head with floating heads and such.

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - Eastern Promises

I like the German cover since it's essentially the theatrical poster with minimal editing.

I wonder if we shouldn't include BunnyDojo's covers when applicable? In this instance, I'd stick with my original choice, but his covers are generally quite nice.

Germany. Much classier looking than the U.S. art.

I was just thinking that myself. I don't think we've had a U.S. winner yet. Hopefully we will break the streak before "The Mist" because I know that cover won't win.

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - Eastern Promises

I don't usually like collage style stuff but I actually prefer the US cover - I think it's more interesting. However, if there WERE a cover of just the hands that said Eastern Promises and none of the other shit, that would have been my choice. BTW - I fucking love this movie.

Germany.

The UK one is fine, but the ratings certificates are so annoying.

I'm disappointed in all three (four).

Re: Battle of the Blu-ray Cover Art - Eastern Promises

Just the hands by themselves and the title on black would have been nice. Do we really need to see pictures of the actors on the cover?

Only if the Germany one read Eastern Promises in English... or Russian.
