Brotherhood of the Wolf CDN SE Update

In a previous news story we brought you the first specifications of the TVA Canadian Exclusive 3-disc Special Edition of Brotherhood of the Wolf. Since that time a few things have changed for the worse as the Audio Commentaries have now been confirmed to be available in French only without English subtitles. Still, this is looking to be the best release all round for English speakers but so you can make the choice yourself we have summarised the various releases with English language options now available and coming soon...

*Please note the HMV website lists the 2-disc Exclusive as only containing a French DD2.0 Surround Audio track, this seems highly unlikely as the first disc is almost certainly identical to the standard R2 release that contains a DD5.1 French Audio track.


R3 - IVL - Out Now - $125 HKD average Internet price

  • 4:3 Pan & Scan
  • DD5.1 and DTS 5.1 French Soundtracks
  • English, Chinese Traditional & Chinese Simplified Subtitles
The Canadian release effectively mimics the original French 3-disc set but adds an English Dub to the main feature and English subtitles to all extra features bar the Audio Commentaries. The next best release, the HMV 2-disc set, mimics the French 2-disc set and adds and English Dub to the main feature and English subtitles to the feature and all extra features but loses the Audio Commentaries and the DTS Soundtrack.

Other releases we know of include a Korean release due in September that will almost certainly include English Subtitles on the main feature, though the likelihood of their inclusion on any available Extra Features seems unlikely. The only other release guaranteed to include English Subtitles is the R4 but we have absolutely no idea what to expect from that at this point!
