giveaway_archer 3

Did you hear that Skyfall passed the one billion dollar mark recently at the international box-office? Yeah, pretty cool. But you know who’s not impressed with James Bond’s latest accomplishment? Archer, Sterling Archer. FX’s infamous secret agent could give a flying screw (a move he patented by the way) about Bond and his movie. Ask Archer for his opinion on any film in the franchise, and he’ll most likely reply “It’s no Gator.” Which is true of course. And to celebrate his complete indifference on the subject we’ve been authorized to give away two copies of Archer‘s third season on DVD. How can you win? Easy… leave a comment below telling us your favorite spy-related movie *that isn’t part of the Bond series.*

Hyde Park on Hudson

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln isn’t the only recent film to dive into the life and psyche of a beloved U.S. President, Roger Michell‘s Hyde Park on Hudson is poised to do the same thing when it comes to Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray). Except, well, as dear as the 13th Amendment was to old Abe, it certainly wasn’t as, ahem, personal as the slice of life Michell has tackled in his film, as it pertains to FDR. Let’s just say that the president had a very special relationship with his distant cousin (Laura Linney), and that’s just a part of Michell’s new film. To get you pumped for yet another intimate look at a U.S. President, we’re giving away one (1) prize pack from Hyde Park on Hudson to one (that is 1) lucky winner. The prize pack includes: a $25 Visa gift card (seriously, what else do you need? Free money!). To win one (1) prize pack from Roger Michell’s Hyde Park on Hudson, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know just who your favorite U.S. President is (or was). There will be no special treatment for those of you who try to stack the deck by saying FDR. Be honest! America! Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Thursday, January 4th, at 8:00PM PST. The winners will be […]

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! Director Gus Van Sant and star (and co-writer!) Matt Damon haven’t worked together since 1997′s star-making Good Will Hunting, but the duo are back together for Promised Land, a new contemporary drama that stars Damon and co-writer John Krasinski as two very different men who descend on a small town when Damon’s big business fracking company attempts to purchase the drilling rights to a town in serious decline. It sounds simple. It’s not. To get you ready for another finely-tuned Van Sant/Damon outing, we’re giving away one (1) prize pack from Promised Land to one (that is 1) lucky winner. The prize pack includes: a $25 Visa gift card, Good Will Hunting on Blu-ray, and “Focus Features’ 10th Anniversary: A Collection of Film Score” soundtrack on CD. To win one (1) prize pack from Gus Van Sant’s Promised Land, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know just what your favorite Matt Damon film is. Not a Damon fan? (First of all, what?) You can name your favorite John Krasinski film instead. Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Thursday, January 4th, at 8:00PM PST. The winners will be chosen at random to receive one Promised Land prize pack as described above. After the break, check out the film’s poster and trailer.

10 Years Trailer

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! While some of you may have spent the Wednesday before Thanksgiving at your very own high school reunion (as seems to be the tradition, so Zack and Miri Make a Porno remind us), like most things, it’s an experience that seems to go down much more smooth when consumed cinematically, and in the comfort of your own home. So let’s forget our high school years and just watch Anchor Bay’s 10 Years instead! For your movie-going pleasure, we’re giving away one (1) 10 Years prize pack, which includes a DVD of 10 Years, along with Blu-rays of a whole mess of other great Anchor Bay titles: Happythankyoumoreplease, My Week With Marilyn, Paper Heart, Blue Valentine, and Daydream Nation. Yes, that will fill up your home video collection quite nicely. To win one (1) prize pack, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite high school-centric film (be it The Breakfast Club or Fast Times at Ridgemont High or Clueless or anything else close to your heart). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, December 21st, at 6:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one 10 Years prize pack as described above. After the break, check out a look at the DVD and the film’s official trailer.

only-the-young-pipes

The exclusive clip above is from the new documentary, Only the Young, from directors Elizabeth Mims and Jason Tippet. The pair followed teenagers in a small Southern California town around and actually came away with a coming-of-age story hidden amongst the foreclosed homes. Without exaggeration, it looks like it was shot in a wasteland world where only teenagers exist. And we’re giving you a chance to see it for free this weekend at the IFC Center in beautiful New York City. What could be better than that? You get to choose when you want to see it. Here’s how to enter:

Red Dawn

As we all know, North Korea is parachuting into our towns soon under the leadership of Zombie Kim Jong-Il to take over our land and make us all wear pantsuits. This is a fact, and it cannot be avoided with wishful thinking or petty denial. Fortunately, a few fine patriots have put together an instructional video on how to beat back the oncoming horde. It’s called Red Dawn, and it will be shown for a small fee in movie theaters around the country as we prepare for the invasion, starting next week. Lucky for you, we got a shipment of goodies airlifted to our location, and we’ll be giving away some very cool prize packs (which include some helpful survival tools). How do you win one? It’s easy.

Seven Psychopaths

So there was this movie, In Bruges, that people seemed to like because it was hilarious and felt incredibly fresh. Martin McDonagh certainly made a name for himself with it, and now he’s got a new film that everyone at FSR seems to love. Seven Psychopaths boasts a great cast and a bizarre, twisty concept that pits writer’s block against dognapping. There’s no way that could go wrong. Now, you can see it for free if you live in the NYC or LA/OC area. Or, you know, if you’re crazy enough to pay for plane tickets to those locations just to get free movie tickets. “How do I get the tickets?!” you ask rhetorically. Great question, friend. It’s incredibly easy. Here’s how:

Two lucky readers will each win a copy of the film on Blu-ray along with a 2GB thumb drive (pictured below) originally created as a Comic-Con exclusive. How do you enter? Easy.

Hey, Rejects. If you live in Austin, Minneapolis or St. Louis (or just happen to be in those neighborhoods), we’ve got an opportunity for you to win free tickets to see Martin McDonagh’s new flick, Seven Psychopaths.

Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best

No plans for tonight? That’s strange because there’s, like, a billion things to do in our glorious age. Fortunately one of those things is seeing an indie movie for free. Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best stars writer/director Ryan O’Nan and Michael Weston as two musicians getting Bromantic in very Once-by-way-of-I-Love-You-Man kind of way. You can check out the trailer below, but you and a friend can also see the movie tonight for no money. How? All you have to do is email us with the subject title: I Want to Beat the Best. We’ll randomly choose two (2) winners from LA and 2 winners from NYC. Then you can take your boyfriend or girlfriend or grandma or whomever you’d like.

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! Do you want to believe? Or do you want to think you believe? In Rodrigo Cortes‘ Red Lights, paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) make it their business to go after claims of the supernatural, from ghosts to faith healing to, well, whatever the hell it is that Robert De Niro‘s psychic Simon Silver does on stage. Obsessed with debunking Silver, Cortes’ film takes both Matheson and Buckley (and the audience) in some really unexpected directions, and it’s a compelling, eye-opening watch. In support of the home video release of Red Lights on October 2nd, we’re giving away two (2) signed posters from the film to two (count ‘em, two!) lucky readers. The mini posters have been signed by Cillian Murphy and Rodrigo Cortes. To win one (1) signed poster from Rodrigo Cortes’ Red Lights, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite film about the supernatural (and feel free to get as creative with your interpretation of “supernatural” as you’d like). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, October 5th, at 8:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one signed Red Lights poster as described above. After the break, check out the film’s official trailer.

Resident Evil: Damnation

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! Wait, did you think there was just one Resident Evil film coming out this year? How wrong you were, little raccoon! Later this month, we’ll be hit with another Resident Evil film, but this one is an all-CG feature that doesn’t require the talents of either Milla Jovovich or Paul W.S. Anderson. Strange, right? Next week sees the release of Makota Kamiya‘s Resident Evil: Damnation, another totally CG outing from the director of 2008′s Resident Evil: Degeneration that returns to the (bloody) adventures of United States Special Agent Leon S. Kennedy, now tasked with sneaking into a foreign country to see just what is up with their use of Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.s) during a war. Guess what, their B.O.W.s are not being used for fun. To get you pumped for this all-new Resident Evil animated battle royale, we’re giving away two (2) prize packs from Resident Evil: Damnation to two (that is 2) lucky winners. Each prize pack includes: a watch, stickers, a t-shirt, a theatrically-sized poster, and a Resident Evil: Damnation figurine. Additionally, one prize pack will come with a Resident Evil: Damnation DVD and one will come with a Resident Evil: Damnation Blu-ray (the choice is up to us!). To win one (1) prize pack from Makoto Kamiya’s Resident Evil: Damnation, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know what your favorite film from the Resident Evil franchise is and why.

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! When you think about the invention of the vibrator (and I bet you think about that a lot, you naughty minx), you probably don’t quite picture that particular apparatus being invented during one of the most straight-laced periods in modern history – the Victorian era. Yet, that’s exactly when the electro-mechanical vibrator was invented, thanks to the vision of one open-minded doctor. In Tanya Wexler‘s Hysteria, the director fictionalizes up some of the story, using the charming Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal for some sexiness, and the result is a forward-thinking and very entertaining film. To get your motors running, we’re giving away one (1) copy of Hysteria on DVD and one (1) copy of Hysteria on Blu-ray. It’s worth moaning about, that’s for sure. Winners will be chosen randomly (including which version our two winners will each receive). The home video release of Hysteria also includes some fun extras, like deleted scenes, commentary with Wexler, and a featurette on “The Technology of Orgasm.” Zing! To win one (1) copy of Tanya Wexler’s Hysteria on DVD or Blu-ray, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite sex comedy (because, at its heart, Hysteria is quite funny). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, September 28th, at 6:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one copy […]

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! You can’t go home again, but Abigail Brooks (Sarah Megan Thomas) is finding that perhaps she just might want to in Ben Hickernell‘s Backwards. Co-starring Dawson Leery himself (James Van Der Beek), Hickernell’s film (which Thomas has also written and produced) centers on Abigail, an Olympic class rower who is ticked off when she’s chosen as an alternate for the U.S. Olympic team. Angry and sad, Abigail quits the team and heads home to coach the crew team at her old high school. Regressive? Did we tell you that Van Der Beek plays her old boyfriend, who is also working at their high school? Perhaps the past is worth a visit. In support of the theatrical release of Backwards, we’re giving away two (2) signed posters from the film to two (count ‘em, two!) lucky readers. The standard one-sheet poster has been signed by James Van Der Beek, Margaret Colin, Sarah Thomas, and director Ben Hickernell. To win one (1) signed poster from Ben Hickernell’s Backwards, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite film about sports (and feel free to get as creative with your interpretation of “sports” as you’d like). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, September 21st, at 8:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one signed Backwards  poster […]

Of course you do. We’ve talked quite a bit about Stephen Elliot’s About Cherry here on the site, and now all our lovely Gotham-based readers have the chance to actually go see the film for free tonight in the Big Apple (we know no one calls it that, but About Cherry is about being starry-eyed, and damn if we aren’t too). About Cherry will screen tonight, Tuesday, September 18th, at 7:30PM at the IFC Center, thanks to IFC Midnight and Fleshbot, and you can go.

We’ve featured Hector Pahaut‘s work on the site before, but this is the first time ever that anyone in the world will be able to win one of his posters. The poster in question, which gets bigger if you click it, is in front of your eyeballs right now – a violently geometric take on Breaking Bad. So how do you win? Simple. Tell us what secret ingredient you’d add to your meth in the comments section, and we’ll choose one (1) winner at random to receive a 23 x 12.5 in. (58.5 x 32 cm) print. Entries will be accepted through Friday (9/21). Good luck to all who knock.
