Ray Winstone, Colm Meaney and Philip Davis star in THE HOT POTATO, released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on September 10.

If you fancy getting your mitts on these prizes, read on.
Please note that this contest is open exclusively to residents of the United Kingdom.
Here's the official synopsis and trailer:
London's East End, 1969: Our heroes Kenny (Winstone) and Danny (Jack Huston) come into possession of a mystery box, which turns out to contain a large lump of weapons-grade uranium – a true hot potato!
Initially unaware of its true value, they very quickly realise the danger they've been exposed to. Ably assisted by Danny's girlfriend, the beautiful Carole (Lois Winstone), and shadowed at every turn by the unshakeable criminal Harry (Meaney), Kenny and Danny reluctantly embark on a quest to offload the potato to the highest bidder.
Taking them on an epic journey that criss-crosses Europe and into the company of an ever-increasing assortment of shady and bizarre characters, THE HOT POTATO is an THE ITALIAN JOB-tinged crime caper that you won't forget!
