nice background. I would adjust will smith and the dog. At the back they're hanging in the air and at the front they're too little (will smith looks like a gnome (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) ). Use some shadows and add them into the background.

Sorry to cut in so late on this. I have been to busy with working on the site to keep up with the forums. But, in my opinion, I would remove the picture of will and his dog on the back. How would it look if you didn't cover the background image on the back, and moved the features up to the top? Maybe have the features next to the synopsis? I think your original image is really dramatic, but has been lost with the updates.

i moved things around a little dont know if this is what you meant bazzah. but i moved
things up and redid it a little trying not to cover the background scene to much.
i like the first cover i also like the second one. not sure what one to go with or could i
just use them both as they both look ok.

just wondering where to go from here
