The Kidd here...
If you've been a reader of AICN for a long time, then you have a pretty good understanding of the importance of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom series and the influence it's had on a number of films over the years. You know of Harry's involvement with JOHN CARTER for quite awhile. You know of the various stages of development the property's been through at one studio or another. You know about the long road that's been taken to finally bring JOHN CARTER to the big screen.
Now is your chance to see it for yourself, and judge if Disney and director Andrew Stanton were able to pull off what for a long time was thought to be impossible. If you live in South Florida or are totally within the capabilities of traveling to South Florida, I've got an early chance for you to witness JOHN CARTER.
I've got 50 pairs of seats for our Ain't It Cool readers to an advance screening of JOHN CARTER on Monday night, March 5, at 7:00 p.m., down at the Regal Sawgrass Stadium 23 in Sunrise, and here's your opportunity to claim them.
I want to know, if you're getting the opportunity to travel to Barsoom, what are the five ESSENTIAL things you're packing with you for your journey? Anything more or less than five, and you're out, so keep it to five, and I'll pick the best packing lists to get set up with tickets for you and a guest to see JOHN CARTER.
Send in your name and packing list to Contests@AintItCool.com with the following subject line exactly (in all CAPS):
FLY ME TO BARSOOM
The deadline for this contest is Thursday night, March 1, at 11:59 p.m. EST, and winners will be notified on Friday. This is not an AICN exclusive event, and has been overbooked to make sure it's full, so be sure you can get there early enough to get in line and hopefully make it inside to see the film.
If you're not sure if you're going to be able to make it, it's quite simple - don't enter. If you don't think you can get out of work early enough, or if you have class, homework, chores, scheduled surgery, an unreliable car, prior engagements or previous commitments that may prevent you from attending this screening, don't try to win only to let these seats go to waste.
Good luck to you all, and thanks to Walt Disney Pictures for the opportunity.
