Monday Giveaway: The Social Network

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]
Pitted against ‘The Kings Speech’ and ‘The Black Swan’ to take Best Movie at this year’s Oscars, we thought we’d start the week by giving away a copy of David Fincher’s, ‘The Social Network’.

In 2003 Harvard undergrad and computer programmer Mark Zuckerberg (Jessie Eisenberg) begins work on a new networking idea called Facebook. What begins as an experiment with friend Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) quickly snowballs into a modern revolution in communication, catapulting Zuckerberg into the limelight and making him the youngest billionaire in history.

As usual with Blu-ray Monday, you have two chances to win. For your first entry, simply retweet the following post on Twitter: Tweet this

Then for a second entry, leave a comment on this post to the following question:

Fincher’s film brilliantly portrays the real life story of Mark Zuckerberg’s creation which became a modern day phenomenon. From inspiring biopic films like Ali, Ray or Ghandi, to individual tales of struggle and endurance like Milk, Catch Me If You Can or 127 Hours, what is your favourite film based on a true story and why? Or perhaps you know of a real life story that you think should be told on the big screen? If so what is it and why do you think it would make a great movie?

To make it easier for us to contact you, leave your Twitter details with your comment. We look forward to your suggestions!

Fight Club marks arrival on Blu-ray Disc with viral websites

Fight Club BDDavid Fincher’s classic Fight Club celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray Disc.

To mark the release, two special websites have been created to immerse fans in the world of the film. WelcomeToFC.com integrates with your Facebook profile and gives it a Fight Club style makeover, while FightClubExperience.com allows visitors to download a widget which collates all Fight Club information happening on the web (from Twitter, Flickr, YouTube etc) in one place. It also gives access to exclusive video clips and of course, the famous rules of Fight Club.

As for the BD itself, in addition to a pristine cut of the film there are all-new bonus materials including two interactive featurettes – “A Hit In The Ear: Ren Klyce and the Sound Design of Fight Club,” which lets viewers remix four key scenes themselves with the help of Oscar-nominated sound designer Ren Klyce, and “Insomniac Mode: I Am Jack’s Search Index,” a set of interactive tools that allow viewers to immediately access any of the bonus material on the disc.

Fight Club hits Blu-ray Disc across Europe in November. You can watch a trailer here:
