Another movie I have never heard of. You are off to a nice start, though.  :)

This is just a personal preference, but the spine is a little distracting with so much going on. I prefer both the spine and back legal areas to be simple. However, that said, once you start adding more to your cover, it might balance out the spine.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts wysmommy. Tomorrow I'll probably finish the whole thing and see what changes I can make. I put the spine a little bit busier because as of now the front is very simpple and the back as well(lol)

Need to size your previews down to 1200-1500px wide, no full sized images are allowed in WIP topics.

You could add a slight color tint, rather than having the stark B&W look?

Few possible examples:

Maybe you could make the image in the middle smaller and then add some of the actor/actress names at the top?

Ignore my terrible cloning, done it on my iPad but I’m sure you get the idea.

I still haven't done the tinting thing nor reduced the front for the actor's names...
but so far this is what I have. Laid out the frames. The red is just a randomn color. Stills to be put in the frames and then special features layout (still figuring out which shape and what layout) below.

Then adjustments.

Any suggestions? Things you don't like, would replace, would add?

Looks good! I would try left aligning or justifying the synopsis and make the image behind the barcode align with the image of the woman.

I’m not sure on the image behind the barcode like C mentioned earlier, plus the special features look a bit messy, especially with the image as the background.
