    Does anyone know if the Canadian E.T. box set is the exact same as the US one? the outside of the box has no French on it but I was wondering if the inside and especially the DVD cover is bilingual or not?
    I need to know asap since I have to order it before year end.
    Thanks

    Trevor,
    I have my copy handy, so here is some info on the 2-disc Canadian version:
    • the front/back covers of packaging are bilingual
    • the quotes on the inside of the packaging are bilingual
    • the foldout insert contained within is NOT bilingual; English only
    • the disc art (on both discs) is NOT bilingual; English only
    • neither spine contains ANY text (the same as the US version I assume)
    Other than that, I believe the content has remained unchanged. The DTS tracks are intact as are the featurettes.

    Hi Jeremy, are you talking about the 2-disc or the big box set version? I am wondering if the contents of the box set including the 2-disc DVD is the same as the US or is it bilingual.

    Trevor, sorry, I only have the standard 2-disc set.

    I own the R1 Canadian Gift-set, and it's zero percent bilingual. (Well, except for the French audio track, but I suppose that's also present on the US version....)

    Thanks Mark, I guess i'll get the CAN box set then cause it won't be much more $$$ than importing the reg 2-disc set from the US.
