Bottle Rocket Criterion DVD art by Barbecue Bros

Slashfilm pointed me to the Bottle Rocket Criterion dvd art. On first look it appears to have been illustrated by Wes Anderson’s brother Eric a la the Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic Criterion box art. But on the Criterion page it states “original artwork by Ian Dingman,” so Eric must not have been available. In any case its still a pretty great box art, though it sadly does not have the yellow jumpsuits or Mr. Henry’s associate Applejack.

The Bottle Rocket Criterion Collection dvd will be available on 11/25 and will also have a Blu-Ray counterpart.
