To answer your first question: for Christmas perhaps?

I don't think most of the regulars here are the target market for movie tie-in editions...

Is a nice painting on the cover if you are a movie fan.

Ok, but the bookcover for me is nowhere near as good as J.R.R. Tolkien's cover, so why not stick with one of the acknowledged best Dust jackets ever made?

I'm definitely predictable!

I think the main issue I have with the branding of the movie stuff is that I really don't like the movie logo at all. The Lord of The Rings branding wasn't quite as nasty, but the Hobbit title looks horrible. And hell will freeze over before I buy a book that has "Now a major motion picture" on the cover!
