    DVD Soon are a Canadian company (based in Montreal, Quebec). If the releases in question have a dual language cover then that's certainly what you will get.

    Universal and Paramount feature these, I'm not sure that Fox do, and I know that the first Lord of the Rings box set (New Line) didn't have a dual language cover.

    Though the v.f. description applies to an alternate, french, cover, rather than a dual-language one.

    v.f. stands for 'version francaise' which means french version.

    The non-v.f. version may still have a bi-lingual cover. I think this is Canadian law that all packaging does.

    Luckily I am not sad enough to let it bother me and hence benefit from greatly reduced prices ;)

    I always thought you bought a DVD to watch the film, rather than stare at the case.

    Which is why it would have a french cover.

    As far as I understand it, the Indy Box Set probably will have dual language packaging, but you should be OK with LOTR:TTT and the Alien Box Set. TTT may have an insert which is bi-lingual (FOTR did), but the main box packaging should be plain english.

    dvdsoon are advertising 4 versions of the Indiana Jones set.
    WS
    WS v.f
    P&S
    P&S v.f

    I just assumed the v.f.s are Canadian and the others are US versions.

    Wouldn't bet on it, mate. I've ordered loads of stuff from them, and I always avoid the (v.f.) ones, but they still come with French on them.

    Quote from DVDsoon.com website:

    "As it stands, the types of covers that are available from major studios are:

    2 distinct products, one with an English cover and one with a French cover. In this case, we mark the french cover version with a (v.f) suffix. All other methods have no (v.f) suffix as there is only one product.

    1 product with a reversible bilingual cover (one side predominently French and one side predominently English, but both sides bilingual).

    1 product with a non reversible bilingual cover (predominently English but bilingual).

    1 product with a reversible cover (one side completely French and one side completely English expect for a small tag stating that the reverse cover is in French). "
