This set comes with a tin very much like the american press kit but the overall design feels a lot less polished and perfected. It's still quite a cool case but the american version certainly has the slight edge for detail.
The case is opened by twisting the top and bottom in opposite directions. There's a a high quality bolt attached to top of the case, which screws into a hole running all the way (!) through the the bottom part (unlike the american set where the bolt is not visible from the outside).
The Minority Report / PreCrime logo appears exactly the same as on the american version though the overall surface detail feels much less smooth and polished on this set. You'll also notice the flat edges in comparison to the slight angles of the other case.
For short: If the american press kit is the crown jewel of your collection, this kit will probably be the diamond in the rough. Though the similarities are striking, this case certainly has a much more crude and prototype feel to it.
Never the less, I can't really bring myself to lowering the score below the big 10 as this design is still such a ground braking choice and the overall quality is still powerful enough to withstand a fucking nuclear attack.
This set comes with two CD-Rom discs and the contents appears to be pretty much the same as the american one. The featurette is quite low res (320 x 240 pixels) and runs for 3 min and 22 sec (most likely exactly the same as the american press kit).
Disc 2 has a variaty of photos and other typical press kit related material. The theatrical trailer is also included and runs for 1 min and 24 sec.
All in all a pretty decent press kit but it only gets a five because of the the low resolution and lack of video footage.
This set is very simular to the american press kit both in looks and content, however, the limited edition tin case (and the disc art) is slightly different. Given that the design of the tin case looks so similar and I have not been able to find out what the country of origin is I'm gonna suggest that this might be some kind of prototype for the american version.
Though rumors claim it to be of Australian or German origin I havn't been able to confirm neither. The original box for this kit was pretty much exactly the same as the american press kit version, but possibly without the adress-labels on it.
I have contacted MKTi who made the tin case for the american press kit to see if they have any more info but so far I havn't recieved any responses.
