Blu-ray Monday Giveaway: Clash of the Titans

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

For this week’s Blu-ray Monday we’re going to give away a copy of 2010 blockbuster Clash of the Titans, which is released on July 26th on Blu-ray Disc.

With an all-star cast including Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Gemma Arterton, the remake of the original 1981 film was a massive success in cinemas, taking almost $500 million at the global box office.

As ever 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 answering the following question:

Sam Worthington came from nowhere to take starring roles in three of the biggest action blockbusters of recent years – Clash of the Titans, Terminator Salvation and, of course, Avatar. But who would you choose as your number one all-time action star? Let us know who your perfect screen hero is, and why. Whether it’s a testosterone-fuelled 80s tough guy (Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis etc), martial arts expert (Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan), dashing modern man (Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig) or new kid on the block like Worthington, we want to hear your views!

It’s always been a hotly debated topic and we’re really interested to see who comes out on top this time. Let battle commence!

The Hurt Locker becomes Lions Gate’s fastest-selling Blu-ray title to date

Kathryn Bigelow’s critically acclaimed The Hurt Locker, nominated for nine Academy Awards and already the recipient of six BAFTA awards, has continued its phenomenal success by becoming Lions Gate Home Entertainment’s fastest selling title ever on Blu-ray Disc.

Since its release on BD and DVD in late December, The Hurt Locker has notched up total sales of 310,000 units, 85,000 of which are Blu-ray Disc sales. Marie-Claire Benson, Marketing Director, Lions Gate Home Entertainment, said: “We are thrilled with the current success of The Hurt Locker to date. We took the decision to continue to promote the title on account of all the nominations and awards it has been receiving. The combination of intense drama, critical acclaim and the exceptional coverage it is garnering, has translated into strong sales on both DVD and Blu-ray. We are particularly pleased with the Blu-ray results, which have accounted for at least 25% of total sales each week since release.”

In addition to its awards success, The Hurt Locker has been named in over 250 top ten lists for 2009 in the US and UK media and has been honoured at several film festivals. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal, The Hurt Locker stars Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Evangeline Lilly, Ralph Fiennes, David Morse and Guy Pearce.
