Nope. They have also, from what I have seen, not been released in stores in Canada. Maybe we are getting French covers. Yippie!!!

Does MGM usually release bilingual covers in Canada? If so, I might have to cancel this order.

Mine hasn't shipped, but I didn't order it until the 20th of October. I'm with ENDContra though if this isn't the same release as what's here in the local B&M's then I'm going to cancel my order too.

Bilingual cover would not be a problem for me ... I watch the DVD, not the cover..... and by the way, how do you say Dr. No in French?

Here is the email response that I received from amazon.ca
Its a general response:

not yet

speaking of which, another item which i ordered at amazon.com which was supposed to be shipped over a month ago still hasn't shipped.

amazon.com has charged my twice for stuff without shipping them, so, just watch your CC, since amazon.ca is probably run in a similar manner. if you see a charge, and don't get your item, call them up.

My response from Amazon:

Thanks for writing to Amazon.ca.

"The James Bond Collection" has proven to be a very popular title.
We have many customer orders for this just released DVD, and we've just begun receiving copies from our suppliers. We are filling orders as quickly as we can on a first-come, first-served basis.

We expect to ship your order in the next few days. On the date of shipment, we'll send you an e-mail message confirming the date, contents and method of your shipment.

Thanks for shopping at Amazon.ca.


Best regards,

Sheri L."

As far as bilingual covers, I have no knowledge whether James Bond will have these, but I think it's kind of cool when I get bilingual covers, as long as I get the same content (it's also ok with me if I get French alternate track/subtitles rather than Spanish, since either way I'll ignore them).

It's actually free shipping over 75 Canadian dollars, but...no free shipping to the US. There are some coupons in the Amazon thread to get $10 off your amazon.ca order, though. and shipping's less than that, so no loss (other than the waiting part, but it's not like I don't have other DVDs to watch).
