    Just received my newly released PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE the other day. Go to put it on earlier today and what is actually on the disc is the DTS version of PREDATOR!!! All the packaging and insert reflect PHANTOM including the disc artwork. Anybody else receive one of these? Are we talking faulty batch across the board or is this just an isolated incident?

    Someone mentioned the exact same problem on a message board at the Directed by Brian De Palma site.

    It's always weird when that happens. The strangest I've seen was the release of a Tom Cochrane CD a number of years back. Fire it up and it is heavy. I thought "Gee, Tom's really gone in a new direction with this one." Turns out it was the new Black Sabbath disc. [​IMG]

    My example was also discussed in the Transformers thread, elsewhere on HTF.
    This was the same problem with the "Transformers: Heroes" DVD released last May; it had "Transformers: Villians" on it instead, which was released at the same time.
    I finally picked up a correct copy of "Heroes" the other day. My son has watched it twice!

    I finally sat down to watch Phantom on Monday and it was fine. Sorry to hear that you got part of a bad batch.
    Now I have the image of a Predator as Winslow Leach and Arnold as Swan stuck in my head... [​IMG]

    The wierdest thing like that that's ever happened to me was years ago, when I bought a copy of Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road on vinyl. It was a two record set. Sides 1,3 and 4 were all correct but side 2 was actually Side 1 of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Bad Reputation. That was pretty disorienting let me tell ya.

    Fox sent me a check disc to Phantom of the Paradise about a month ago, and it has Two Girls and a Guy on it instead. [​IMG]
