dvd issues?  
Hey everyone!

So the DVD came out today, and I of course rushed out to go buy it.  I got home all excvited to watch the special features which, according to dvd case, include "Making Of", Deleted Scenes, Audio commentary and more.  Only when I went to the special features menu on the DVD all I get are a bunch of previews for other movies.

Has anyone else had this problem?  Where are my special features!?

ohh wait...
I found this in patelpinto:

from amazon.com: "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."

Re: ohh wait...
Is that a U.S. only number, does anyone know? I'm in Canada, but I phoned anyway and left a message. I explained that I wasn't sure if I had the right number because I am outside the States, but if they could call me back with some more info, that'd be great.

I've emailed Amazon.ca too, but I doubt they'll do anything. They can be really useless sometimes. :/

Re: ohh wait...
i'm not sure if it's a u.s. only number...i'm in the u.s. though and i called earlier. they ask you for the last 2 numbers of the upc, one of the quotes on the back of the box, your name, address, and phone number, and tell you that a new copy will be sent to you.

only wish i knew how long it was going to take because i want to watch the special features so bad, especially the commentaries!

Re: ohh wait...
Okay. I'll have it ready in case they can help me. Otherwise, I'm not sure what they'll do if they can only help U.S. people. We'll just have to wait and see! :/

Jeez, that must be annoying D: I preordered mine from Amazon and it isn't supposed to come until tomorrow...hopefully it won't have that problem.

I haven't gotten mine yet. I'm wondering if I should wait a week or so and see if that minimizes the chances of it being screwed up...

Crap, man. I pre-ordered mine from Barnes & Noble, and I've yet to receive it. Better not have any snafus or -else-. D:

Mine's FUBAR too. I got mine from Amazon.ca and they accidentally sent to me two weeks early, which I already called them about. Guess they're getting another call from me!

Just called about my copy... they said you can go to www.slumdogmillionairedvd.com/bonusfeatures and watch them there if you're anxious to see the bonus stuff

I preordered it MONTHS before it came out.
It comes into the mail I scream like a mad woman, shove it in my DVD player and instantly go to the sepecial features.
All I got was trailers=/
Talk about disappointment.

I'm glad you brought this up here or else it would have taken me ages to notice the special features were missing...

The phone # leads you here: http://slumdogdvd.orderassistance.com/

I just sent in my request. :/
