Hi
I was wondering will all New Line dvd titles from canada film be like lord of the rings with french/english bilingual covers or was it a one off. Because Blade 2 is new line will that have the same format as LOTR.
Does anyone know what features Blade 2 has e.g soundtrack 5.1 and DTS.

Almost all sites will tell you the format of the disc. The French writing is only when the disc is sourced from Canada.

Personally I couldn't care less whether it has French writing on the cover or not not.

I buy all of mine from Play and currently have over 2,000 DVDs with French writing on the cover.

I agree with Ian and Basil Brush :D I couldn't care less about the French writing. I have the R3 version of The Gift and that has Chinese writing. I find it breaks up the monotony of my DVD spines :D

Bi-lingual covers only appear from certain distributors. The others usually issue reversible covers (French on one side, English on the other).

AFAIK, you get bilingual covers with Alliance Atlantis, Dreamworks SKG, Paramount Home Video, Universal Home Video. You get non bilingual covers with other distributors.

Not that Alliance Atlantis can include Buena Vista and Buena Vista subsidiaries (Dimensions, Miramax). Also New Line tends to be distributed by Alliance Atlantis as well.

If you want English covers only, then order from www.amazon.com or pick the US covers from www.movietyme.com -- but you will pay more for just an English cover!

Is the latter a new member-state:confused: :p :)
At this rate it'll be like multi-sourced goods where you have to find the English information lines. Tut.

For New Line releases you tend to lose the English Dolby 2.0 track as Alliance replace this with a French 2.0 one
This occured with John Q, LOTR, ...
However as you still get the English Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1 (if applicable) should not be a problem.

All New line Disk's such as blade 2 will have a French/English cover if ordered from Play.com, CD-WOW.com and Futureent.com as these disks come from Canada as said before, numerous time by other members.

is that on new releases from this point? because my blade 1 R1 from Play didn't have a bilingual cover.

Yes, if the New Line release is distributed by Alliance Atlantis in Canada.

The first new line disk I had like it was Twin Peaks-Fire walk with me. I think it's quite a new thing (like this year) to have French/English covers. K-pax was one of the first universal titles I know of to have this.

Keep her off the cider and she might be a bit more reliable.

If you use a lot of steroids, it will make it smaller for you :D as most body builders will testify to.

Ian do you have MPD today.:D
