They have changed the artwork for the DVD release. I like this better than the blurry image.

Not a big fan of either of them to be honest. Though I much prefer this one over the first one.

Re: DVD Artwork changed and updated.

I really liked the first one.

I'd rather have had Kirk and Spock, or Spock alone, on the cover.

But it's what's inside that counts.

Don't really care for either, but eh, what can ya do? It's not like I'm buying it for the cover art after all (though it is nice when it's good).

It looks like the older version is a slipcover over the new artwork.

Agreed. This is some of the dullest DVD artwork I've ever seen. Couldn't they have been a *bit* more imaginative?

Perhaps that's it, but I'm wondering how new it really is - note the July 17 date stamp on the comments. It also seems a little odd to me that no one else seems to have reported this in the interim.

They just updated their article and bumped it to the top.

Re: DVD Artwork changed and updated.

I like either one of those, so it doesn't matter to me which one they use. Though I admit I like the idea of having Kirk on the cover! I think they should've added the whole cast in the picture for the release. But it doen't matter to me what they use as the cover, I'll still buy it!

Okay, I see it now.

Re: DVD Artwork changed and updated.

I like the original poster art better. The 'new' art looks more like a fanboy creation, and not a very good one either. Perhaps they should let our own Photoshoppers and Blue Nacelles people take a turn at it.
