I Just pre-ordered from Videoflicks.com (US Side of company) and it appears
to be the same edition. BTW - the Canadian site did not offer the US as a
choice in the ordering section. I can't imagine anyone putting out a Region
1 version without english subtitles, but then again....

Don't know which company is supplying it, but Videoflicks in Canada says
that the DVD they will be carrying in late Sept.(& for which they are
accepting pre-release orders)does have English subtitles. I have
occasionally purchased Canadian releases of films through this company
several months before the same titles were released in the U.S.
