City Paper is not for tourists
Only a week after fans of Let the Right One In complained that the retail copies of the DVD offered an awful translation of the film’s original Swedish, now Best Picture Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire has been released to the masses sans special features.
That’s right: The DVD has only — gasp! — the movie itself and a couple of trailers. The nerve of Fox Searchlight!
Apparently retailers will be remedying the situation. Amazon offers this message:
DVD Alert: We are aware that special features were missing from a number of Slumdog Millionaire DVDs. Fox has set up a hotline telephone number (1-888-223-4FOX) for those consumers who may have purchased a version that does not contain special features. Upon calling the hotline, these consumers will be able to have their disc replaced for one containing special features. Fox regrets any inconvenience this has caused.
Thank God there’s a hotline. Crisis averted!
