Default Banlieue B13/District B13 new HD DVD 4/17/2007

The French film Banlieue B13/District B13 was released by Magnolia yesterday, according to DVD Pacific (they are awaiting stock).
DVD Pacific have been the first to list titles from smaller distributors before (The Wolrd's Fastest Indian, which also first appeared on sites the very day it was released), so I tend to believe them.

I'll await reviews before buying. It's a fun movie, but the reviews for the Blu-ray (already out) say it has English SDH subtitles only, and I want to know if they've fixed it/added proper literal subtitles before I consider buying.

Does DVDPacific only list English subtitles or also audio?

I ordered it on Amazon but it states 1-3 weeks for delivery. I'll update everyone if I receive it.

Thanks.

I'll look forward to your update... I can only hope that 'The Host' isn't this difficult to source when it gets released.

So, has anyone got their copy? Kinda strange that we didn't hear at all about this release.

I already have this on Blu Ray. Pic and sound quality are great. The only think that irks me is that, if you want to watch the movie with its original French language track with english subtitles, the subtitles are for the hearing impaired. Which means you have to see [tires screaching], [gunshot], etc. on the screen with the rest of the subtitles.
If this is fixed for the HD DVD. I will probably sell my copy and pick up the HD copy.

Also, the English Dub for this film is uniquely horrific. Stay away from it.
