    Hello, fellow Canucks!

    I'm thinking about buying the new Rocky box set, and in fact, saw the thing today (out early) at a local Future Shop. $39.99, too, which is a great price.

    However!

    I'm a little anal about bilingual packaging (I despise it) and I'm wondering if the discs inside are bilingual. There's a slip case that goes around the box so it's impossible to tell from the outside. Any help is GREATLY appreciated, people! Thanks in advance!

    MGM does not produce Bilingual covers in Canada.

    Actually, they do now. If you look at Cody Banks 2, Legally Blonde boxset and Species SE, you'll see the bilingual packaging. Rocky Anthology is just the latest.

    On the other hand, Species III: Unrated is not bilingual....I happened upon it this afternoon. I didn't see a french track on it. Also the outer case of Wild At Heart: SE didn't have any french on it either.

    I too would like to know if the inner cases to the Rocky boxset are bilingual....if not, I'll pick it up.

    As soon as someone does buy this set, and decides to open it, please let the rest of us know what exactly the 6th bonus disc contains. [​IMG]

    We know it has the A&E Stallone Biography, but will it have any other goodies (i.e.deleted scenes)?

    6th Disc? There is no sixth disc. I have the set sitting in front of me right now. Only the five discs with the movies.

    BTW - the back of the cover is bilingual and on the front cover underneath the title they have the (version francais incluse)

    So, the discs themselves have that "Version Francaise Incluse" on them, or is that just on the slip of paper that comes off on the back of the box?

    Hey Jeremy,

    I can confirm that the individual DVD cases also say "Version Francaise Incluse" on the front and side, while the description on the back is in English and French.

    Oh, well.

    Just in case anyone is looking for the Anthology with the bonus disc included, I found copies at HMV this morning for $35.99.....it has a silver sticker which mentions that the A&E biography is included.
