After winning the top award at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE will screen as the closing night film at the 52nd annual London Film Festival and will have a special screening at the AFI Los Angeles International Film Festival which will also honor Boyle with a special tribute.

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE will open on Wednesday, November 12, 2008 in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Toronto. It will then open in additional cities throughout November and December.

Winner of the 2008 Toronto Film Festival People's Choice Award, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE is the story of Jamal Malik (Patel), an 18 year–old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's ''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?''

The result is the sweeping, stylish, intoxicatingly human experience of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, the new film from acclaimed director Danny Boyle (TRAINSPOTTING, SHALLOW GRAVE, MILLIONS, 28 DAYS LATER, SUNSHINE). Part exhilarating love story, part eye–catching journey into the underbelly of the so–called ''maximum city'' of Mumbai, part stirring tale of an Everyman's triumph against a harsh, cynical world, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE is a visceral, action–packed Dickensian epic for the 21st Century. At the heart of its exuberant storytelling lies the intriguing question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

The running time on this film is 120 minutes and the film is rated R.
