I've been as excited as hell about this new X-MEN movie since they announced the storyline they were adapting as its story. The "Days of Future Past" plotline was so radically forward thinking and unprecedented that I'm hoping that director Bryan Singer and his team have brought even a fraction of that historic storytelling to this latest film and its cast of thousands. And I've got seats for the Chicago advance screening of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Here are the details…
The screening will take place Tuesday, May 20 at 7:00pm at a theater in downtown Chicago (the exact location will only be given to the winners).
To win, send me an email at X-MenDays@aintitcoolmail.com (please note the new email address) with the subject line "The Person Who Sent Me Was You" (exactly like that). In the body of the email, I need your full Name, whether or not you're bringing a Guest (each winner may bring ONE confirmed guest--if I think you gave your +1 to someone trolling for free tickets at the theater, you won't get in), and the answer to the following question: "What two X-Men characters--one from each timeline--are you hoping will have scene together in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and why?" I need two character names and a detailed reason for your choices. Keep your responses BRIEF--no more than 100 words (no matter how tempted you are to go over the limit). Best answers (as judged by me) win, and you'll hear from me soon if you won, so check your email over the weekend!
Although this is not an exclusive Ain't It Cool News event winners seats will be reserved until 15 minutes before showtime (meaning 6:45 pm). The venue is deliberately overbooked to guarantee a full house. If you can't arrive by 6:45 pm, don't enter this contest. If there's even the slightest chance you or your guest will have to back out of attending or arrive late if you do win, don't enter. If you have a job that might make you late or unable to attend, or an ill/pregnant relative, or a temperamental significant other, or a scratchy throat, do not enter. And the 24-hour-notice-to-cancel rule is done. If you win and don't show up, the Black List is your new best friend.
Good luck, everyone! And thanks to the Twentieth Century Fox for giving us this very cool screening.
