Has anyone else thought that this cover art looks incredibly weird. First of all the stance that Costner takes on the cover art is the same he had in the theatrical poster, except they put him holding a badge instead of a gun...? This makes no sense to me. Honestly, it just looks dumb now, not only that, but upon close inspection you can easily tell it's fake. His fingers don't look close to real, and he's only got four fingers... Where did #5 go?

Agreed. I too hate this cover art. It looks extra cheesy and absolutely aesthetically inadequate for a movie this good. I bought the blu-ray and kinda want to return it it looks so fugly. Oh well. At least The Untouchables still kicks balls.

PS - Kevin Costner's hand does look absurdly fake on the cover and I also noticed the missing fingers. Laaaaaaaame.

Agreed. I had completely forgotten about the original art, but it was still obvious to me that in that image he was supposed to be holding a gun instead of a badge. What is this, a PG Disney flick? It goes from being a somewhat epic image to something like the cover of a Naked Gun movie. What the hell?
