Wow, that's pretty neat. The first time I watched this film I thought it wasn't very good, I've since watched it 3 more times and I'm still confused as to what's really going on. Is it about the Trinity, the story of Cain and Able or maybe I'm just completely missing the point? Either way, I kinda like it now.
Eh...no mean to disrespect but I'm not a fan of the chosen artwork and much preferred others in contention. I guess I'll stick with my pre-order of the U.S. release. Glad some of you liked it at least.
Canceled my pre-order for this. It's great that Winding Refn and Lionsgate held a competition for the design, but I'm sorry to say that I'm not a fan of the chosen cover. Glad I pre-ordered the U.S. copy, can't wait to see the film again.
