Default Weekly Comp - FRANKLYN! - 12/06/09

Hi guys!

Yep that's right! This week we're giving away 3 copies of FRANKLYN! For more details on this film, check out the thread dedicated to it, but here's some extra info for you all...



'AMAZING… A FASCINATING AND PROVOCATIVE JOURNEY INTO LOVE, LIFE AND LOSS.' – SUNDAY MIRROR
Produced by Oscar winning producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor), the ambitious and highly accomplished debut feature from writer-director Gerald McMorrow, FRANKLYN, is an intelligent and thought-provoking fantasy thriller that invites favourable comparisons to the visionary works of Terry Gilliam (Brazil; Twelve Monkeys), Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), Alex Proyas (Dark City) and Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko).
A welcome respite from the usual conventions of modern British cinema (i.e., it's not a gangster flick, a cheap horror knock-off or a clichéd rom-com), FRANKLYN is a movie that dares to be different and delivers thrilling visuals, imaginative ideas and compelling storytelling in spades. Described by the Sunday Mirror as "an offbeat fantasy drama [that] makes for fascinating viewing" and as "a cracking sci-fi brainteaser" by Little White Lies, it is, in the words of SFX magazine, "a movie that rewards multiple viewings."

Depicting an intriguing tale of four souls whose lives span two parallel worlds and are intertwined by fate, romance and tragedy, the film features an impressive cast that includes hot young actors Ryan Phillippe (Flags Of Our Fathers; Crash), Eva Green (The Golden Compass; Casino Royale), Sam Riley (Control) alongside seasoned veterans Bernard Hill (Valkyrie), Susannah York (Visitors) and Art Malik (Dean Spanley).

Jonathan Preest (Phillippe) is a masked vigilante detective operating within the futuristic, dystopian metropolis of Meanwhile City, a city under totalitarian religious control. His current quest is to seek out his nemesis, The Individual, who Preest holds responsible for the death of a young girl. Meanwhile, in contemporary London, three people are living out their daily lives completely unaware that their destinies link them not only to each other but also to Preest.

Milo (Riley) is a heartbroken twenty-something, recently jilted just before his wedding, who yearns for the purity of first love and believes he may have found it when he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Sally (Green). Emilia (also played by Green) is a troubled art student whose latest project dangerously involves documenting her own suicide attempts on video. Peter Esser (Hill) is a man of faith who, in desperation, has travelled from Cambridge to search for his estranged and mentally disturbed son who has gone missing amongst the homeless shelters of central London. As the lines between their respective worlds begin to blur, Preest, Milo, Emilia and Esser each receive a glimpse at the inner workings of fate and its ability to transcend and affect vastly different environments and existences.

Featuring standout performances by an excellent cast and bolstered by visuals, set design and art direction that impressively belie its modest budget, FRANKLYN is an amazing piece of cerebral fantasy sci-fi that is destined for the kind of crossover cult status afforded Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" and Richard Kelly's "Donnie Darko".

A truly remarkable directorial debut, this is one film guaranteed to provoke discussion and debate amongst viewers long after the final credits have rolled and one that marks Gerald McMorrow as a British writer-director with a dazzling future ahead of him.

FRANKLYN (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£15.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) by E1 Entertainment on 22nd June 2009.

Take a look at

But how to win it? Well, this week, like last week, you'll need to get those brains working! Some massage your scalp and eat some fish - here's this week's comp! Below is a wordsearch I made full of remakes (what with The Last House On The Left coming out today - ANOTHER remake!!!), however there are a few letters in there that are not part of a title. All you need to do is find the remakes, reshuffle the remaining letters and baddabingbaddaboom you'll have the name of a legendary horror actor ! Simple right? As soon as you find who's name is muddled in the wordsearch PM ME YOUR ANSWER and you'll be entered into the draw!

Here's the puzzle...



3 Winners will be announced next friday!

Good luck!
