I’ve been waiting and waiting for the DVD art to be revealed for The Mist (review), which hits DVD on March 25th (pre-order it here), and this is all I get for my troubles: a slightly tweaked version of the theatrical poster.
I wonder if the film’s controversial ending had anything to do with the replacement of Thomas Jane’s character’s son, whom he’s holding on the poster, to the woman (I’m assuming it’s the school teacher). Seems a bit odd, since she doesn’t figure that heavily into the plot.
And I have to say I hate that gray border. I’m not sure what, exactly, it does to fill me with such loathing, but it just seems … cheap I guess. The artwork would be that much more effective if it took up the whole front, don’t you think? Or am I being too picky?
As we told you about here, the two-disc collector’s edition DVD will feature the following:
Hate the cover or love it, the film inside is still one of the best King adaptations I’ve ever seen, not to mention one of the most badass monsters movies to make its way to cineplexes in the last decade or so, so don’t “mist” the chance to see it again (sorry, couldn’t help it)!
