Random Factoid #246

I actually feel legitimate disappointment when good movies have bad DVD covers.

Case in point: “Up in the Air.”  Come on, Paramount, is that really the best you can do?  A picture of George Clooney laughing surrounded by a whole bunch of empty blue space?

There’s nothing happening on the cover, and if I knew nothing about the movie, I would see it and walk away.  I fear that in the future, people will see this DVD and not even think twice about it.  Which is such a shame.

What about you?  Any DVD cover (or poster, for that matter) really disappoint you?

I thought The Matrix Revolutions DVD cover was pretty disappointing (http://www.impawards.com/2003/posters/matrix_revolutions_verdvd.jpg).

Paramount really should of used the Up in the Air poster as the DVD art (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b2/Up_in_the_Air_Poster.jpg)
