Sneakers is one of my all-time favorite films, simply for the fact that it’s just a fun film through and through. It’s too bad it hasn’t become a franchise, but then again I’ve seen the Ocean’s Eleven sequels and maybe it’s for the best.
Sneakers isn’t as high profile as the many other films I’ve featured in this blog, but still it’s a personal favorite and the film is just so geeky. I don’t mind tackling designs for smaller or obscure properties, as long as the design makes sense.
If you’ve seen the film, this Blu-Ray case is pretty self-explanatory. If you haven’t, then I highly suggest you seek it out – excellent popcorn movie. Looks like it hasn’t been released on Blu-Ray yet (oddly enough it was released on the now-dead HD-DVD format), so you may have to endure a basic DVD transfer to enjoy the film.
This case is almost to scale with the prop from the film, though it could be compressed into a standard jewel case, similar to a steelbook or a collector’s tin.
If you are a fan of this film, then you should check out this great write-up over at CHUD, which pretty much sums up my enthusiasm towards this film.

Looks good Dave, I havent seen the film but will have to check it out.
It is a GREAT film. I’d say it’s comparable in tone to Clooney’s Ocean’s Eleven and last year’s The Losers (another one worth checking out).
Dave, this is excellent! Sneakers also happens to be one of my favorites, and this is a great idea for the Special Edition packaging.
Thanks! Like it says in that CHUD article I linked to: there are two kinds of people – those who like Sneakers, and those who haven’t seen it yet.
I look at this page at least once a week. You really should get in touch with Universal, if you haven’t already. Seriously.
Haha oh I wish. I have a few dozen things I’d like Universal to consider. If only I could get my foot in the door.
Any idea which panasonic model this is? I’m trying to see if I can purchase one online from the movie and then gut it and possibly make my own based sort of on what you did here.
