Does anyone have the dirt on this? I can't tell if this is a picture of actual chocolate in the box or a cover meant to look like chocolate.

I think it's just a picture of chocolates. If you use the zoom feature in the link you provided, you can zoom in and you will see the chocolates are flat and that there seems too be a space underneath the chocolate feature that holds the 2 discs.

I think it is just a card in the box that looks like chocolate. I am hoping it is chocolate though, it will be an easy Blu-ray to get past the wife!

If I'm getting Forrest Gump, it will be the standard edition. It will fit in with the other 2 Sapphire releases, as well as my entire collection.
Better Blu than Red.

No chocolates.

It has a "paper tray" cover inside that resembles a tray of chocolates. The box itself is scented to smell like chocolates & the only goodies being included are a feather bookmark and a booklet.

Hopefully they get a good chocolate scent. I heard when Reefer Madness the Movie Musical was released on DVD the cases were sceneted to smell like brownies and a lot of people didn't like the smell at all.

I'll stick with the regular case as well, but I'm glad the chocolate box is an option
Damn fine coffee!

I don't want to really "smell" the case anyway, I just the case to keep my F.G. blu protected, not the eco type kind either!

That's cute, but I'd go with the standard release.

Does this really come with a feather? This collectors edition stuff is getting a little crazy.

Just give me the movie with a good transfer, they can keep the chocolates and the special packaging.

The thing is, I've never seen the film, so even if Paramount pulls a Gladiator instead of a Braveheart, I will still pick it up. If its better than the DVD, I will pick it up, as I don't own it.
