The newly commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (Candyman, 10 to Midnight, In the Mouth of Madness). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.

Scream Factory also notes that "extras will be announced on a later date, but we can confirm that we have produced already a slew of them!"
