NOTE: This contest is closed.
The answer to Wednesday’s contest was Gravity. The randomly selected winners were Griffin N and Garrett D.
Last year we gave away 10 copies of Scott Campbell’s book The Great Showdowns by debuting brand-new paintings based on our favorite films of all time. This year, we’re doing a sequel.
For the next few days, you’ll have a chance to win one of 10 copies of Scott Campbell‘s latest book, Great Showdowns: The Return. It’s a brand new collection of Campbell’s distinctive art depicting some of the greatest conflicts in movie history. We at /Film have been writing about Showdowns for years so, to commemorate and give away the new book, we once again teamed up with Campbell to do something very special.
Leading up to the October 15 release of the book, we’ll be premiering never before seen showdowns. Each showdown is based on the favorite 2013 movie (so far) of one of five /Film writers: Peter Sciretta, Germain Lussier, David Chen, Russ Fischer and Angie Han. Today is your second chance and it’s based on Germain’s favorite 2013 movie (so far).
You’ll have one day to look at the showdown, read the explanation, and then e-mail in your guess. At the end of the day, two correct answers will randomly be selected and sent a free copy of The Great Showdowns: The Return by Scott Campbell.
Sound good? Check out Germain’s showdown below and find out how to enter.
Here’s the world premiere of Scott C’s Showdown for ______, Germain’s favorite movie of 2013 (so far).
What movie is this showdown from? If you know, check out instructions below. For some clues, here’s why this is Germain’s favorite movie of 2013 (so far):
I literally haven’t met one person who has not loved this film. And I’ve asked. Every time I recommend this small film to people, I follow up and the answers are always the same: “beautiful,” “magical,” “breathtaking,” “a masterpiece.” That last one we don’t use lightly. This fresh filmmaker has crafted an emotional work that balances all kinds of tones with the skill reserved for Oscar-winners. Each young character is real, raw, smart and funny. The movie starts with levity, gets sad, has moments of terror as well as pure elation but, somehow, it all flows together perfectly. How perfectly? I gave it a perfect score.
So what’s Germain’s showdown? E-mail the answer in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, address and phone number. Sorry, the contest is only open to US, UK and Canadian residents. All entries submitted by 7 a.m. PST tomorrow will be considered and winners will be contacted directly. If you don’t include all the information and you get picked, another number gets selected.
If you don’t want to wait to win, I urge you to head to Amazon and pick up a copy yourself. I highly recommend it. It’s awesome.
NOTE: If you leave the answer in the comments, all you’re doing is making it harder for yourself to win. It will also result in contest disqualification and possible banning.
