UPDATE: This contest is closed. There will be four more.
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 first chance and it’s based on Peter’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 Peter’s favorite movie of all time below and find out how to enter.
Here’s the world premiere of Scott C’s Showdown for ______, Peter’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 Peter’s favorite movie of 2013 (so far):
I don’t think there has been a movie since I launched slashfilm.com which has completely sucked me in like this film did. I was sitting in a dark room in Century City, literally on the edge of my seat, having panic attacks during the intense moments of life or death struggle. When I left the theater that night, I felt like I knew what its like to be in space. I felt like I had visited outer space, in a way that no other science fiction film had ever made me feel.
Here’s another hint. Here’s Peter’s SECOND favorite movie of 2013 (so far). A movie Scott already did a showdown for:
So what’s Peter’s favorite movie of 2013? (PS – It’s going to get MUCH harder.) E-mail the answer in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name, address and - if you live in Canada - your phone number. Sorry, the contest is only open to US and Canadian residents. The contest ends at 7 a.m. PST tomorrow 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.
