Hollywood Movies in Chinese

A customer just E-Mailed me they saw the movie Troy with Traditional Chinese sub-titles on a recent flight, and was wondering where to buy it in the US.

Many movies have great translations in Chinese, the headache/problem is getting them in the US. Movie studios make it a huge headache to get movies in a foreign language in the US (with the exception of Spanish and French).

Disney has excellent translations of all their animation in Mandarin Chinese, but with the exception of Mulan, none of the others ones are available in the US. For BlueRay, the Region in Taiwan is the same as the US. For regular DVD's Taiwan and China have a different regional coding than in the US, so a regionless DVD player is needed.

Unfortunately I don't know where to buy versions with Chinese in the US,  I have seen some movies at some Chinese bookstores, but its very un-even.  And I doubt the bookstores got the permission of the US studious to import them.
Some series I have that are  Bilingual Animated Chinese DVD's

www.books.com.tw has a good selections of US movies with Chinese subtitles/translations. It is a online bookstore in Taiwan. They accept orders from US/overseas online and ship very fast.

There is a Hong Kong DVD/VCD store chain called Firelink, with two locations in San Gabriel Valley: Rosemead and San Gabriel.

They stock authentic (not pirated) Hollywood movies with Chinese subtitles produced in Hong Kong.

Just don't buy movies from the Soyodo bookstores!
