Totally missed this one. It's a documentary, but might as well stick it with the rest:

Quincy by Alan Hicks and Rashida Jones - An intimate look into the life of icon Quincy Jones. A unique force in music and popular culture for 70 years, Jones has transcended racial and cultural boundaries; his story is inextricably woven into the fabric of America.

To my knowledge, WB has yet to offer up anything as of yet, though when they do, I highly doubt that will be among them. I imagine just A Star is Born and Crazy Rich Asians will be offered.
I figured if WB pushed Wonder Woman...
The formatting and sluglines are what I am interested in.

Well, WW got surprisingly good reviews, so the awards buzz built up from that. The trailers for Aquaman have made it look like one of the worst films of the year, but we'll have to wait and see what happens. If it manages to get the same praise, then who knows, it might actually be a possibility.

What happened to the colorful cover pages?
I don't recall them having "colorful cover pages." The two Focus put up last year (Darkest Hour and Victoria & Abdul) didn't have any either. You may be thinking of Fox Searchlight, who has put out colored covered pages in the past.
