    Does anyone know if Amazon.de has an English option on their website? I'm interested in pre-ordering the Premium Edition releases of Hero and House Of Flying Daggers, but I don't speak German (I can probably take myself through the ordering process with assistance from Babelfish, but I don't know if they ship to N. America).

    Are there other sites that carry German R2 discs that will ship to the U.S.?

    Ken,

    Yes, they ship to the US (books, DVD's, VHS). To the best of my knowledge, you don't have to pay taxes then (VAT).

    You could also use the equivalent US or English amazon pages to help you through the language: they're practically identical.

    There's an English "help" section on their site.

    € 1.00 is at least $ 1.25 at the moment.


    I have no experience with other German sites shipping to the US (Apparently, I have no experience at all with shipments to the US [​IMG] ).

    Cees: Thanks for the info. I may just go ahead with the pre-orders.

    Matt: I don't believe that either title will have English subtitles, just German.

    According to the information given there, the premium edition of Hero will have a Chinese sound track, of House Of Flying Daggers that isn't clear.

    They look like very interesting versions, BTW!

    Excellent link, Melanie!
    (And a bit late: Welcome to the forum!)

    I changed your reference to a link. That site looks good.

    Thanks for welcoming me to the forum and changing my reference to a link. I would have done so, if I would have at least posted 15 times before.

    I can also recommend:

    dvdbargain.net

    And the following page is a cd-wow cheapest price finder.

    consol.be/cdwow/

    You can find the usually 5-digit product # in the link
    of the product page of the diffrent cd-wow sites

    As an example Hero DVD:

    Melanie:

    Thanks for the links. Is it just me, or is Amazon.de the only retailer taking pre-orders for the Premium Edition of "House Of Flying Daggers"? I checked CD-WOW, but they don't appear to be taking pre-orders for the PE. Here's the version I'm looking for:

    Sorry for not replying sooner.

    Isn't this the PE edition?

    www5.cd-wow.us/detail_results_2.php?product_code=19545&subcat=region2

    cd-wow release date: July 7
    amazon.de: July 7

    I am not familiar with the movie, but looks to me as if cd-wow put up the wrong cover, the movie poster maybe ??

    I suggest you mail the customer service regarding what edition they are about to dispatch, I am sure the staff is able to clarify things.

    The one pictured in the link is the regular edition and costs about 5 EUR less than the Premium Edition. Thanks for your help though.
