The Kidd here...
I've got a ton of work stacked up here on my desk, so let me not waste too much time trying to hype up PARANORMAN. You already know what LAIKA brings to the table with their animation, and now that we're talking zombies, monsters, ghosts and spirits being added to the mix, that should be an easy sell. I've already checked out the flick and think you're going to dig it, so I went ahead and secured quite a few pairs of tickets to see an advance screening of the film next week, on Thursday night, August 16, at 7:00 p.m., at the AMC Aventura 24 (note the earlier start time).
I've got 25 pairs of tickets up for grabs, and, if you want to stake your claim on some, send in your answer to the following question: What is your favorite low-budget monster movie, and why? Keep it to under 100 words, and, as the entires come pouring in, they'll be judged on their own merit. Once I hit 25 good quality entries, I'm closing up shop on this contest, and winners will be notified by email and posted up on the site.
In the body of the email, send your name and answer to Contests@AintItCool.com with the following subject line exactly (in all CAPS):
WHEN YOU'RE STRANGE
If you're missing any of the information I'm asking for, then it's as if you don't even have an entry, no matter how good it may have been.
If you're not sure if you're going to be able to make it though, 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. We've been having far too many no-shows lately, so if you decide you're not going to go in the event you do win tickets, don't worry about playing again in the future. You're going on my Black List forever and ever.
Thanks to Focus Features for setting this up, and good luck to you.
