    I just watched the movie, and while it was on I started hitting the subtitle button (shows you how enthralling this movie is). I stopped on the French Subtitle track and no dialogue ever popped-up. Has anyone seen this yet? Or is my player acting funky?
    Just curious.

    I've seen many titles with empty sub tracks. I'm willing to bet they were made in the authoring software, but for whatever reason nothing was put there

    This subtitle track was probably only used to tranlate informations shown on screen in French (such as locations, newspapers headlines,...), not actual dialogue (Paramount unfortunatly doesn't subtitle their movies in FR [​IMG])

    Actually, the French subtitles showed up on my player with NO subtitle selected, whenever there were subtitles on the movie (when the Siberian girl is talking to Lara, for example), then they went away...
