Guillermo del Toro Judging Halloween YouTube Contest

Guillermo del Toro YouTube

Filmmakers who’ve dreamed of working on the kind of frightening sets Guillermo del Toro is known for will now have their chance. Del Toro is judging a new contest, presented by Legendary Pictures and YouTube, that’ll allow filmmakers to visit specially created horror sets at YouTube locations in New York, Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. The results will then be uploaded to YouTube and a select few will get consultations with Del Toro. One lucky winner will even get a development deal. It’s a pretty fantastic opportunity for horror filmmakers and it takes place between September 22 and October 28, 2014.

Below, read the full details of the Guillermo del Toro YouTube contest, see examples of the sets and watch del Toro describe the whole thing. Read More »

Pacific Rim

EDIT: THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. WINNERS HAVE BEEN CONTACTED.

Starting next week, the Prop Store is letting fans own a piece of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. On August 25, an online auction will begin that includes over 300 original props, costumes and set decoration pieces used in the summer blockbuster. We’re talking full on Jaeger pilot suits all the way down to the smallest little background details.

Most of this stuff can get pretty expensive, though, which is where /Film comes in. We’re proud to offer you the ability to win one of two authentic props from the film for free. We have a Kaiju Organ Jar and Loccent shirt, which are the men behind the Jaegar program.

All you have to do is send us an e-mail with the name and brief description of either the Kaiju or Jaeger of your dreams and you’re automatically entered. The contest will run for one week. Below, find out more details and see photos of the prizes for the Pacific Rim auction. Read More »

Freddy's House of Cards

There’s one element of Netflix’s House of Cards that always makes an episode better. Not even going to tease it: that element is Freddy’s BBQ Joint. The scenes where Freddy (Reg E. Cathey) feeds ribs to Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) give the story not only a dash of authenticity, but also add character and pathos to Frank. (Plus, they make you hungry.) Now Omaze is making it possible for one lucky fan to eat barbecue with Spacey himself on the set of the show. Read more about the House of Cards BBQ contest below. Read More »
