Quite difficult, the J card is actually paper so you have to be careful and the glue is quite strong.

I just got my copy through the post today too

Thanks for the heads up about the strong glue on the J card side. Will take a bit more care when opening as i like to keep the J card about for future use.

Noob question, but why is it called a J card? I been thinking up of words that might be relevant to them giving information etc but can't think of anything other than 'Joke' for the J

I assume..so could be wrong...that J card just means its (usually) J shaped covering the back and wraps around to either the top or bottom of the front with the ratings logos, bluray banner etc on...I suppose going by that logic the one on the King of new york is a C card lol...and the ones on the recent Play.com Fox exclusives are a mini slipcover...

I just call it an info sheet regardless of its shape

Because the card "wraps around" the SteelBook, many people (including myself) are calling them Taco Cards also

Is it Region B locked or will it also play Region A? I'd really like to get this but I don't have a region-free Blu-ray player. Thanks for the response guys!
