THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.
The answer to Friday’s contest was Before Midnight. The randomly selected winners were Mike M. and Julian P.
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 two more 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, Angie Han, David Chen and Russ Fischer. Today is your second to last chance and it’s based on David’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.
