Early buzz is very positive for HANNA starring Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, and Saoirse Ronan. The film is directed by Joe Smith (director of ATONEMENT, THE SOLOIST, and PRIDE & PREJUDICE) and has garnered comparisons to THE PROFESSIONAL and LA FEMME NIKITA (two films I hold in high regard).
I've got 50 seats to give away for an early screening of HANNA for Chicago area AICN readers. The screening will take place next Wednesday, March 30 at 7:00pm at a theater in Chicago (the exact location will only be given to the winners).
And as an added bonus, rising star Saoirse Ronan will be present for a Q&A after the film. Saoirse is the young actress from THE LOVELY BONES and also will be playing a part in Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT. She’ll be there to answer questions about her role in HANNA after the film in a post-screening Q&A.
Here's how to win:
Send me an email at email@example.com (please note the new email address) with the subject line "Hanna, get your gun!". In the body of the email, I need your Name, whether or not you're bringing a Guest (guests' names are not required), and the answer to the following question (read carefully): "If Eric Bana were training you in the wilderness, what three essentials would you need to survive?” Keep your responses BRIEF--if you decide to explain your answer, limit it to 75 words or less (no matter how tempted you are to go over the limit). People with the most interesting answers win, and will hear from me over the weekend.
Please keep in mind that although this is not an exclusive AICN event, our winners will have reserved seating until 6:30 (half hour before showtime). However, the screening is overbooked to make sure there is a full house for our guests. If there's even the slightest chance you or your guest will have to back out of attending if you do win, don't enter. If you have a job that might make you late or unable to attend, or a temperamental significant other, or if you’re planning on robbing a bank over the weekend, do not enter! If you have a huge vagina, or a scorching case of baraka kravitz clijisters, or like to talk on your cell phone during the film, do not enter either! As with Capone’s contests, anyone not showing up without informing me 24 hours ahead of time so I can fill their seats runs the risk of being no longer eligible for future screening contests.
I have to be honest, before this event was scheduled I knew next to nothing about HANNA, but then I saw the trailer below. Needless to say, I can’t wait for next Wednesday.
Good luck, everyone! This event should be a blast! I can’t wait to experience HANNA with you in a full theater!
