“Naomi came in and did not look exactly like the photograph that I had fallen in love with. […] It was devastating.”
—David Lynch

Blonde Betty Elms (Naomi Watts) has only just arrived in Hollywood to become a movie star when she meets an enigmatic brunette with amnesia (Laura Harring). Meanwhile, as the two set off to solve the second woman’s identity, filmmaker Adam Kesher (Justin Theroux) runs into ominous trouble while casting his latest project. David Lynch’s seductive and scary vision of Los Angeles’s dream factory is one of the true masterpieces of the new millennium, a tale of love, jealousy, and revenge like no other.

What's your response to this?


  1. Ryan says:

    So so so excited for this, but the cover they picked is my least favorite out of all of these.

  2. Jared says:

    The last of the rejected covers is definitely the best. They look like zombies or vampires on the actual (blurry) cover.

  3. R. says:

    What a shame that this didn’t not become a series…potential was enormous. :/

  4. delphine barbillon says:

    I prefer the last one!

  5. Blue Frank says:

    The last one is the best for sure. And I wouldn’t count on them adding any more features. They seem to have cut down on them within the last few years. 🙁

  6. Lynch Me says:

    I Like All The Cover art except the one they picked

  7. Peter says:

    I like the one they picked, I think the blur effect makes sense given the dream like narrative. But I would totally agree with most of you, that last rejected one is the best.

  8. Tom says:

    I like the one they picked the best! I can’t wait for this release !

  9. Fish Percolator says:

    The one they went with is the closest to the spirit of the movie and Lynch’s style.

  10. LookAtMyLog says:

    I think the cover they picked is the best.

  11. natu says:

    The rejected covers are the best ones! (Specially the first one) The chosen one is the worst. I mean, it’s not ugly, but the blur effect makes it look kind of… cheap? Like the person who did it was not very inspired.

  12. Adam Lygo says:

    Should have chosen the second or third rejected ones!!
