This case is a rather nice design for this film in particular but it certainly could've benefited from some kind of slipcase. The long bookstyle case is made from a very sturdy cardboard (more like a hardcover book binding then a digipack) and comes with a glossy exterior.
The interor is lined with 2 square size digitray type disc holders. The opposite side has a bit of extra cardboard padding to even out the thickness, followed by a thin cardboard pocket with a glossy chrome like look to it. The chromed pocket is embossed with a small Zodiac logo pocket holds a small booklet (in english!) together with 4 glossy postcards.
So in conclusion, the quality feels pretty good and sturdy, but the length of the case might give the spine a lot of wear and tear over the years (as it comes of as a little flimsy when the spine can't really handle the length of the case).
The artwork feels like a superb choice and the only thing missing would've been a matching slipcase to go along with the overall Zodiac letter design.
As usual with David Fincher films, efforts aren't really spared when it comes to special features.
This set comes with a whole bunch of interesting extras but as far as the discs are concerned they appear to be exactly the same as the other director's cut editions out on the market so far.
The menus are all in english and all very well designed (even though they're actually static, which is kind of a suprprise).
So in conclusion; I think this release does very well in terms of bonus material and they're even presented in widescreen format. But then again, seeing as this is such a big movie I wouldn't be to surprised if an even better release will come along eventually.
But until there's a 3 disc set out on the market, you'll probably like to grab this one just for the good looking case design.
The discs are encoded R2/R4/R5.
